So, I am in need of some advice here. I am looking for a new Compact Flash card for my Canon 40D 8GB in size. I am trying to decide between a Transcend brand card and a SanDisk one. The Transcend card is faster than the SanDisk one (40MB/sec. vs. 20MB/sec.) and also a bit pricier ($134.99 vs. $119.99). But what I'm asking is this: is Transcend a more reliable brand than SanDisk? I've heard many good things about SanDisk but not much of anything about Transcend.
I know that Secure Digital is always been reliable, I don’t know about Transcend though. Although Transcend has more speed. Check Canon site or better yet call them and ask them if your 40D can handle or has benefit from 266X speed.
My XTi/400D don’t benefit from 20/ms to 40/ms, I get 11 frames ‘till buffer’s full.
Just my opinion, I don’t think it is worth if you only get a frame on faster card.
