    Default Pls Advise This Noob here

    hi all.

    As i am going for the Canon300D. i need some advise on which brand of High-Speed/Ultra CF card to get, i would appreciate very deeply if you Gurus can help.

    here's wat i am looking for..

    most reliable brand of high-speed CF card (1Ghz)
    which brand has the fastest READ & WRITE speed.
    most importantly, i would like to find out which are the preferred shops to get CF card.

    Thanks a lot, in advance!

    The shop that sells you the 300D will also want to sell you the CF, but you can reject them and shop around. People here always recommend/prefer AlanPhoto, CathayPhoto & MScolor. Note that "the preferred shop" does not mean "the cheapest shop".
    - If got money, go for the Sandisk Ultra II, famous brand and good resell value for your future.
    - If on budget, try the Transcend 45X, many people use this and no reported problem.

    thanks for the advise...
    i was tinking of Sandisk also.
    btw, any idea how much the 1Ghz UltraII will cost?

    you mention abt preferred shops..Alan, Cathay & MScolor.
    i know where is Alan & Cathay.. but where is MScolor?

    i am familiar with the saying "cheap things dun come good"
    but still i am curious to know.. which shop sell the cheapest?

    Actually it should be Sandisk Ultra II 1GB, not 1GHz, we are talking about memory, not CPU speed. I heard from the recent IT show that it was selling at about $600+. A Transcend 45X 1GB is selling at about $400+, see the difference?

    MSColor is located at Ang Mo Kio central, block 711.

    From the way you asked, I sensed that you are a newbie, so it does not matter which shop you walk in, they will still chop you like a carrot. The best thing is joining 1 of the SEED outing, organized by Dagger. Refer here:

    You will still be chopped, but it will be less pain.....

    Hi, just wanna mention that the unit of measurement for memory cards is byte not hertz...

    So I guess you are looking for the 1 GB (Gigabtye) CF card...

    actually i am not new to photography..

    i have some experience dated few years back, when i had my few Nikons SLR
    then after few years , kind of mellow down & got into very casual digital camera.
    dats why i went for my current Olympus C2100 & Fuji4700.

    but sad to say, these 2 are on SM cards.
    dat why my knowledge of CF card is so limited.
