    bought one before, but cost me about $40, I think, can't remember well. Use my SD card from FZ5 on my KM 5D sometime. But the speed isn't great

    So I guess we got the same brand then, but more EX . I did try on that my Kingmax SD card, came out error or shown as full a few times during shoot, but eject and re-insert will solve the problem, Kingston Elite Pro SD seem no problem with it though.

    I'm also using one ...best to use the kinsgton,lexar or the sandisk with the adaptor...
    else it hang too often....and the card damaged as the result of it ...u can still go for replacement due to the lifetime warranty...kingmax sux =in term of reliability and service

    Now the Kingmax SD is used on FZ5 only, so far no problem if used on FZ5, suppose to be faster than Kingston Elite Pro also.
    Bro, you mean you got the Kingmax SD damaged before?

    Up for this thread, need some answers myself too.

    Anyone using the SANDISK brand adapter? How's the speed? There's another brand (actually no brand) which cost $30, blueish label, anyone used it before?

    How's the speed for your CF1 type adaptor though? I believe it tend to be more expensive right?

    hi guys,
    I'm looking for some KingMax DDR500 (512mb x2) memory for my PC ...
    does anyone know where to get a new or used pair? Bescom (the agent?) raised their price $50 , to $200/ 512mb stick ... which seems exhorbitant to me.

    BTW, which shop has the $29 adapter?

    Try IT Image on 6th floor Sim Lim Square. Get the one with the words "SD/MMC CF Adapter" on it. It's faster than others which do not have any words printed on them.

    yupe using that "brand" too. The read/write speed seem fast to me when i put in my SD and miniSD into the adapter to be use on my camera. Hardly notice the speed difference. I m wondering if the adapter have any speed limitation.

    This adaptor with "SD/MMC CF Adapter" is CF type 1 or CF type 2?

    There is a speed difference if you use the adapter. In my tests where I use a fast card reader, a test software called "HD Speed", and a 120x SD card, these were the results:

    With adapter:
    Read speed = 7.1 MB/s
    Write speed = 2.9 MB/s

    Without adapter (i.e. using card reader only):
    Read speed = 9.3 MB/s
    Write speed = 9.0 MB/s

    Whether or not you "see" a difference in speed when used in your camera depends a lot on how fast your camera reads and writes. Generally, it should not make any practical difference in P & S cameras.
