    What is the speed difference between ur 3 CF? What about reliability?

    As for me,

    Oly 5050
    CF - Digicard 128 and Sandisk 32 both are about 9 sec for 2560 HQ write times as indicated by the flashing led light after shooting

    Default mine

    Nikon D70
    Sandisk Ultra
    512Mb
    6Mb/sec
    Very reliable - although a friend's 256Mb Sandisk Ultra developed bad sectors!! But it was replaced.

    D70 with 512 Sandisk

    the buffering is really effective so i can get abt 11 continuous shots before the buffer fills up and the card is still writing.....

    good enough for me not to spend the extra dough on the superfast lexar with WA.

    i rather spend the cash to get more cards....

    used sandisk for my canon s45 too. no probs. heck, the 32mb cf card that was packaged with the canon s45 was stickered as canon but also has sandisk on it....guess that canon get their cfs from sandisk.

    Been using the Hitachi card since I brought the camera, about 2 years already.
    Everything is working fine
