Camera-specific Development / Re: Canon 50D
March 10, 2015, 05:15:42 PM
I have a 50D in the mail on its way to me. I've never used an SLR camera before, but the 50D appealed for its low light abilities and RAW video recording with MagicLantern. I scored it and four lenses for $555 on eBay.

The one thing it doesn't come with is a decent CF card. And after spending several hours reading through the forums, I'm still a little uncertain which card to get. I'm going on a trip to Europe for three weeks, so I'd rather get two in case one goes bad. I'll have my laptop to offload the cards.

Are the KomputerBay 128 GB 1066x cards good with this camera? They're by far the cheapest per GB 1066x and I'm tempted to pick up a pair.

Also, is any USB3 card reader plugged into a USB3 port okay? Or do I need a specific one for specific brands of cards? I've read stories here of disasters, but they seem to involve USB2.
