16gb availability & cost
on Apr 9, 2011 at 3:36:23 pm

as a new owner of a canon 60d, im learning valuable lessons in workflow. 1, the amount of 1920x1080/24p footage is only 1hr 13min. not 4 & 5 hours as the
carton or employees state. 2, availability of 16gb locally is scary. in two days i visited wal-mart, best buy, radio shack, cvs, office depot & none stocked 16gb class 6. specifically, any class 6 was missing in action. i now know to stick with the net for class 6 efilm pro that have been great. can anyone explain the market and sdhc class 6? why so hard to get locally & why is card space info so misleading? what are the optimal settings on a canon 60 d to extend record times?

The 'record time' stated on an SDHC card box is meaningless because it's entirely dependent on the compression format used by your specific camera. And most store employees at the places you mentioned don't know anything about this stuff. As far as hard to find- well I have no trouble finding them typically on Amazon.com/B&H Photo or at Best Buy.

Seriously- wow you got ripped off. Next time get these. They are half the price and far superior.

yeah, i was in a pinch. and as I mentioned in my original post, local stores don't carry the 16gb class 6 cards. it was weird. i really needed the cards and an office depot had the kodaks. 80.00 a piece. luckily i could return them, which i did after copying the contents and backing them up three times on external drives.

Have you used the San Disc in the EX-1 adaptor?

Wow, yeah I run into the same things here in Tucson. Nobody has any in stock so if you're in a pinch, you're screwed. I pickup cheap class 10s on the web all the time for use as my regular cards and as backups. I can usually get off brand class 10 cards in 8 or 16 gb for as little as $15 for 8 and 25 for a 16. Check out http://www.supermediastore.com. They carry mostly blank cd/DVD/bluray, but they'll have fairly regular specials on SDHC cards. I get class 10s because even the cheap class 10s will work in my cameras with no over heat issues.

Consumers usually do not need such large cards, even though more comsumer cameras are now shooting video on these cards.


Online is the way to go. I've also used NewEgg.com to purchase some cards in the past.

What about your local camera shop. Because I'm so used to traditional video, I forget that most of what I need for DSLR can be found at the photography shop that is two blocks from my house. I would assume that most metropolitan areas would have of these. Here in Kansas City, there are quite a few. Very handy.
