    Why promote your website that has nothing to do with the CompactFlash card? SanDisk is quite reputable and reliable for their flash memory cards.

    I'd buy at Adorama Camera.

    Whatever - SanDisk makes the most reliable CF cards on the market - period.

    I have a question about these higher speed CF cards. Are the DSLR's capable of even writing to the disk at these speeds. I don't see the point in buying one of these if the cameras can't write to it at the max speeds...???

    Choose your cards wisely. A lot of the more advanced cameras have good throughput but the digital SLRs in the lower price ranges don't come close and even the Ultra II is more than enough.

    True. www.robgalbraith.com tests cameras regularly with various CF cards.

    The current leader card is the Sandisk Extreme IV- and cameras out right now don't support its biggest weapon. Its new card reader allows it to transfer at speeds 2x that of existing cards though.

    Thanks for the link. I looked at the different camera write speeds and it looks like the Nikon D200 beats all the other camera's. I wonder what the results will be for the Sony Alpha...

    I'd rather have four 2 GB cards rather than one 8 GB card, just in case something went wrong.

    I was noticing how much card readers make a difference. My parents' Windows machine has a built-in card reader and my external USB 2.0 reader is 8x as fast on the same Ultra II card.

    Just check the speed of the Minolta alpha series that the Sony used to be. ;)

    Very true, I do the same. It is good to have more then one card with you at all times just incase something were to happen...because you never know with technology. :)

    Also, the Extreme series has a wider operating temperature over the Ultra II. I would also imagine that the QC is even more stringent on the Extremes.

    Since no one else has said this yet -

    I buy all my memory cards from Calumet Photographic ( i go in person though )

    http://www.calumetphoto.com/Computers+~+Media/Memory+~+Media/SanDisk/

    I get my 2GB Extreme III CF cards from them for $109

    ebay sometimes has cheaper, but there is so many scams its hard to get a real one ;)

    and no. sandisk is not baaaaaad. they clearly provide a solid and dependable card, where the few lexar cards i have tried all had issues with file corruption. in my opinion. lexar is baaaaaaaad :)

    edit: just looked at calumet, they lowered the price to $104 for a Extreme III 2GB CF lol!
