Hey all,
I've finally upgraded to full frame. In about two weeks I'll be traveling to India for a 40 day trip :)
I wanted to ask for a recommendation on a CF card - speed isn't important, I'm not into sports photography or HD videos. I need space as I'll be shooting RAW and don't know if I'll be able to backup daily, so I was thinking a 32gb+16gb or something that would keep me shooting for 2-3 days.
Thanks for any tips!

when i got my 5DMK2 earlier this year I ordered it with a SanDisk Extreme 16 gig udma and have been VERY happy with it. read write speed is great (60 meg a sec) and I have yet to fill it during a session

Transcend 32Gb 400x (Blue) is working great for me and B&H have them on sale for $40 for the last few weeks. It keeps up with the 7D no prob.....

I bought a D800 recently and use cheap sandisc 8gb cards (the $10 kind) I don't see any need to upgrade as I also don't shoot sport or for now at least, not used the video.

i use a sandisk ultra (30gb/s) 16gb.

don't skimp on space, RAW files are HUGE on 5d2, im talking ~20mb each.

i bought mine from amazon.
