Thoughts?

I wouldn't cheap out on storage. I have heard to many horror stories about losing a bunch of data on cheap cards. Also depending on your interface the faster card will load to your computer faster which I always appreciate. I say go with the sandisk.

I've always stuck with Sandisk. While there's plenty of other good manufacturers out there I'd rather not risk it.

Or just tether and don't even worry about it. tongue.gif

Sandisk's quality isn't what it used to be. They still make good high end cards, but now a lot of people just buy it because it's a well known name in flash storage.

Funny enough I've had all three cards. I say had because I sold them when I sold my T2i. The Team was the fastest at writing and Sandisk for read. Team does make RAM for our PCs as well.

As for flash memory going bad I've only ever had one issue and that was with a cheap 2GB microSD that came with a phone. I still have an old 256MB Lexar SD card from 2005 that is still kicking.

I personally never had an issue with Sandisk. I've even washed/dried (left it in my pants pocket) one of their cheaper 1GB SD cards and it still works perfectly, another one got thrown off of a car while in the camera and still works, and I use the extreme ones in my xsi and they work perfectly and are fast.

I just got in my Canon 85 1.8 today and I'm in love. A lot of people were saying that this lens is long on crop but I find it just perfect. It focuses exactly where I want it to every time even at f1.8 and the color, saturation, compression, and AF blows away the Tamron 17-50 2.8 that I sold.

You need to be about 14-16 feet away to do full length portraits with it but after doing a few test full length portraits inside I find the length to be just right as in you can still tell your model how to pose or give instructions without having to yell.

It's funny because shooting with this lens at iso 1600 produces way less noise than my Tamron did at iso 1600. At iso 1600 it looks better than my Tamron did at iso 100. I'll post pics later.

Next up is a 300mm f2.8 (I wish :0).

Thanks for the answers guys, mostly along the lines of what I was thinking. The sandisk is ok if it's got a deal on it, otherwise it's kinda expensive. I frequently save my pictures, not too worried about losing a couple, especially since I'm a noob, and don't really have any valuable shots yet. Think I'll get the team. Thanks all.

I have to +1 what's been said about not cheaping out on memory. I've owned a lot of memory cards over the years, from PNY, Rosewill, Kingston, Lexar, and Sandisk. Only the Lexar and Sandisk cards have held up, so those are the only brands I recommend buying. The rest have all corrupted a few photos. Lexar isn't even all that expensive. A class 6 Platinum II is only like $10 for 16 gigs... UHS-I is maybe $20 for the same capacity.

That does not even make any sense that a lens can affect ISO performance. ISO performance is essentially determined by sensor and processing technology. Unless you were extremely underexposing or shooting a lots of shadows with the tamron the noise profile should be identical at identical iso ranges....

there is absolutely no point to pick the team over the transcend since it is a 1 dollar difference...especially since your t2i cant make use of UHS-1 and its increase in speed. you never know when you will get THE PICTURE and end up losing it cause you saved 1 dollar on a defective card.

Well to be fair the reason why I get less noise is because I'm able to correctly expose at 1.8 iso 1600 indoors with no lights on whereas with my Tamron I was slightly underexposing so I was getting more shadow noise. None the less I get less noise with this lens because the optics are superior anyways. My Tamron was very grain almost film like even at iso 100.

Team is not necessarily bad. I did not know that the t2i can make use of the uhs-1, so that might change things. However; I have heard of the transend card stopping during video, and the is unacceptable for me. If it won't stop, I'd rather have it, but if it does, it's junk.

Got 4 x Sandisk 32gb 30mb/s class 10s for $17 each, should be on amazon for $24, work well with my D7000, obv faster cards would be better, for budget however good nontheless, if not got with 45mb/s sandisk for 16gb for $18 and it's UHS-1 but non-applicable to you. Don't want to think of buying Lexer 1000x CF yet although I'm going to have to with D800 coming soonish.
