    CF Card Recommendations

    Do you have any recommendations on the best and fastest CF card(s) for an H4D-60? What about a card reader? I find the subject somewhat confusing. Thank you and Happy holidays.

    I've been using Hoodman cards (UDMA 6) with very good performance. Even so I have read several postings of failures with the newer and supposedly faster UDMA-7 cards.

    My favorite CF card is Transcend 32gb 400x for $39.95 Transcend 32GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA TS32GCF400 B&H . Transcend has a faster one, but I haven't had the need.

    My favorite card reader is the Lexar usb3 dual slot reader. I have two of them.

    I am wondering if the new UDMA 7's and 600-1000x speeds really make any difference with the H4D?

    My PhaseOne IQ180 is only fed SanDisk Extreme Pro cards of 32GB and 64GB kinds and they work most excellently with no problems, they are quite fast enough for the 80 to me.

    Any body have opinion about using the Lexar 64GB CF card on P30+. (X400).

    Thanks,

    Re: CF Card Recommendations

    If I recall correctly, Hasselblad recommends Sandisk, and usually includes Sandisk with the bundle kits.

    I shoot a H4D/60 and use Sandisk 32 GB Extreme Pro CF, UDMA-6. 90mb/s

    I had one issue over a year ago, but it was either a user error on my part that corrupted the card, or I got stuck with a counterfeit card. No issues before or since then.

    The card readers I use are Lexar Pro FW800 which can be daisy chained allowing up to 4 cards to be downloaded at once.

    I do not think the ultra fast cards are all that useful in the camera as much as they are downloading them in the card-reader.

    Marc,

    Funny, but I also use the SanDisk 32 GB Extreme Pro CF, UDMA-6 cards with the Lexar Pro FW800 card reader. So far, so good. I have had no issues with my H4D60.

    Re: CF Card Recommendations

    Thank you all. I will go with the Sandisk Pro. Cost is very reasonable these days. Happy New Year!
