What type of memory card can I buy for my Canon Digital Rebel EOS DS6041 in 2010? Can I use an Ultra CF 8GB card or do I have to use the SD CF and up to how many GB can I use?


OK, this specific unit supports up to a 8GB Ultra CF card.

Have a look at the link below. It should be sufficient.

Formatting a SanDisk for my Canon Rebel Xt failed

Formatting the card completely erases it. Your pics are gone.

8 GB CF card has made the camera lose the Raw function even when I return old 1GB CF card still the same... any ideas?

1st, make sure the camera is in the Creative zone P, TV, AV, M or A-Dep. I have made this mistake many time and everytime I forget I moved the dial.

If dial is in the Creative Zone and still no RAW option then have the camera format the card, if that doesn't work do the following:

Turn off camera,
Remove lens,
Put on body cap.
Remove CF Card
Remove Battery
Let sit for about 30 minutes.
Put battery back in.
Put CF Card back in
Turn camera on
Put camera in Creative Zone
Push Menu button
Push Set button twice and check if RAW is now an option

If not then you can try the clear all settings function in the Set-Up 2 menu. Push the menu button then the left arrow button arrow down to the clear settings line push set the clear all functions.

If this doesn't help then I would say carry it to your nearest Canon Dealer that offers cleaning and service.

I am getting a ERR CF with my Rebel XT

You've probably gotten bent pins in the camera. Has to go to the shop.

Err CF

I had the same message on my EOS/Rebel XTI and the camera shop concluded that one of the pins where the card is inserted into the camera had come loose. They sent the camera back to Canon for repair. Luckily, it was still under warranty at the time.

Err CF

Observe the connector inside camera, using a flashlight. If there is a bent pin take the camera to service immediately. Don't turn it on any more as we did in one similar case - creating a short circuit that damaged the camera electronics and voided the warranty.

If no visible problems, remove battery and leave it out overnight.

Canon Rebel XTI EOS

there are two chances: 1. your card is not compatible and 2. the card is defective.
good CF-cards you can get from SANDISK. I use them myself w/o a hassle and they are very fast......
keep your hands of Lexar or other Offbrand cards. they are not worth the money you pay for and also too slow. Sandisk cards have a real transfer rate of up to 40MB/s

Rebel XT will not work with new faster CF cards.

Check the volume and speed of memcard, maybe it is not compatible. error 99 is an indication that a lens or shutter curtain is not working, so i cant see any connection with the memcard problem. Check your camera memcard compatibility.

Sandisk card problem

he firmware version of my 20D only shows up when the camera is switched to a manual mode. Stick it on AV or something and try the menus again. Hope that helps! :-)
