Thread: Flash Card Question

    Default Flash Card Question

    Hi,

    what does 40X Compact flash card mean?
    then the higher the "X", the faster right? don't the camera have a limit on writing to the card itself? what about the 300D?

    How much is a 256mb Cf card now?

    You can refer to the following article for the meaning of 40x.

    for the CF test results on 300D, you can refer to the following link :

    a 256MB CF should cost at the range of 100-140, you can call the shops and ask them.

    depends on the brand...
    buy a reliable one. i recommend sandisk ultra
    and i paid 250 for a 512 mb
    the 256 one should be about half that price... in the 120-130 region..

    but i think that shooting 6 mega pix on the 300d, you should get larger than 256...the space will run out really fast. especially if you are doing event shoot.
