    latest price for the kingston ultimate 2GB at S$99 at PC show. very tempted to get it and use it with a CF card convertor. Will the R/W speed be affect by the SD to CF convertor?

    I just bought 2 Lexar 133x 2 Gb SD cards at $99 each from the Eastgear stand at the PC show. I think its very good value.

    the faster the better, especially for a fast camera, especially now that the prices are not really much different between a fast and slow SD card.

    luckily i didn't have to buy a new card for my new cam (got a 33x 1GB free), else sure heart pain

    could some experts enlighten me on this Memory card thingy...

    i read somewhere that the current brands of memory cards in the market boost of the "speed" like Kingston Elitepro 50x or Ultimate 133x and 66x and etc, but those were not writing speed....they are actually "reading speed"......that was what the guy told me when i bought my cam and this is confirmed by some discussions in the canon S3 accesories thread....writing speed is seldom published, some manufacturers published this info in their website....
