Thread: Which brand of CF to use?

    Default Which brand of CF to use?

    Just want to find out which CF cards do you guys use. Mind sharing the brand, model, cost and reason why? I'm currently using Lexar 2GB 80x. Cost me $115.

    Well, this is not a Nikon related topic, please do post it in the general discussions sub-forum in future.

    To answer the question,

    I use Lexar 80x 2GB card and a Transcend 120x 2GB

    Both works well and fast.

    In the order I acquired them:

    Brand: Kingston
    Model: 512mb
    Cost: $190
    Reason: I needed a CF card to use when I bought my 300D

    Brand:Lexar
    Model: 1GB 80X Prof. series 2nd edn.
    Cost: $158
    Reason: I wanted a higher capacity card, there was a MO here on CS, someone told me Lexar is good

    Brand: Kingston
    Model: 1GB Elite Pro
    Cost: $100
    Reason: Wanted another card, this seemed ok.

    Brand: Transcend
    Model: 2gb 120x
    Cost: $85
    Reason: Needed another card, this one was fast

    It's amazing how much prices have dropped
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Twinmoss 4GB 140x - $130

    I have been using for 6 months daily without any data corruption. Just bought a few more cards.

    It is faster than the Kingston , Lexar and Sandisk cards that I own.

    Any major brand of cards would be fine. To date, I'm still using a couple of Hagiwara's, two Sandisks as well. Question is, how are you gonna be able to access them fast enough when you're shooting, and need to change cards on-the-fly.

    So far, only Sandisk for me.

    I have the normal 512mb, 256mb & 128mb plus a Ultra II 1gb & a Extreme III 1gb.

    Hhhmmmm....maybe I should go for a Extreme IV 2gb to complete my collection..... NAH!!
