Hi,

i want buy a 7D :)

Now i would like to know how much minutes i could save footage in full quality 1080p on a 4gb and 16gb compact flash card.

Which card do you use or should I use??? There a lot of models on the market.

Thank you.

There are lots of topics on this if you search.

4gb will only hold about 12min, don't even bother with these, 8gb should be your minimum.
16gb will hold around 45mins. Most people would either suggest a fast Sandisk model as they're well known, and also the Kingston 133x cards as they're cheap and reliable.

i agree with the minimum that was suggested by Tim,i myself have about 3 16gb cards and 2-8gig cards and they've held me down pretty well for a day of music video shooting and i did'nt have to dump the cards until i made it home.
