    Sandisk Extreme III, the ones you've been using, should work just fine.
    There are rumors that if you use slow cards you might get jittery video. I haven't experienced that with my 7D.

    Besides, you already own the cards, why ask us and not try for your own?

    I use SanDisk Extreme III's and don't have any problems. The price is right for the cards, so at a minimum get those.
