pussyfooter16gb Sandisk Ultra 30MB/s is what I recommend.
omnidataThe best price/performance card of the moment right now is the SanDisk Extreme Plus 32GB
This one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D6Y0U8E?tag=thewire06-20&linkCode=as2
Slightly related: there really needs to be a standard nomenclature for memory cards.
DingoSeanAt LEAST. I'd recommend the 45mb/s Extreme cards, instead if you go with Sandisk...
pussyfooterwe use the exact card I posted every day at work, you definitely don't need more if you dont wanna spend more money, even though the difference now is so small.
omnidataLexar's black and gold looks better, because black and gold.
DingoSeanhave two of these that I picked up for a hilariously cheap deal... I'm considering myself good for a while now.
DingoSeanI mean, even so, I've still maxed the buffer when shooting 1080p24 on a T2i before - though I'm not sure, is the T3i equipped with a better processor than that?
Either way, a slightly faster card gives you a little more 'future proof-ness' to it.

FrostyDamn that's faster and holds more memory than my computer...jk but still, damn.
pussyfooterI have a hard time using a card larger than 32gb unless you have dual slots recording to both cards.
chipkalbackAnother vote for Sandisk Extreme Plus cards. I've used Lexar in the past and just can't trust them anymore after having one go corrupt in the middle of shooting.
Also consider getting more cards with a little less capacity (i.e. 2 32GB cards instead of 1 64GB), that way if a card craps out while you're shooting, you didn't lose your entire day's worth of work, only what's on that card while the other card remains intact.
DingoSeanI mean, i've had Sandisk cards corrupt on me in shooting - it's just kinda what happens sometimes.
