    I have a Canon T4i/650D and was advised to buy a 700X card when I bought the camera, but it was very pricey. I need a larger capacity card but would prefer not to spend more than necessary. Is it really necessary to have 700X for 1080 video?

    I have a cheap class 10 card that only records a few seconds before the buffer gets overloaded.

    I noticed that Transcend offers what they call a high speed card (UHS-I), which is faster than a standard class 10 but not as fast as the 700X. They claim it can keep up with 1080 recording. Does anyone have any experience with this or any other card that might do the trick for less than the cost of a 700X?

    I need to record a few clips that will go to the camera max 29:59 clip length.

    Oops, I realized there is a specific forum for DSLRs so I re-posted there. Sorry…
