I bought the 256MB one at $95 a couple of weeks ago. I read somewhere that the write speed is somewhat 16x but don't quote me, though. I use it on a A70 so I don't need a high speed card. So far the performance of the card in terms of reliablity and speed (relative to my cam's write speed) is good. Cheap and good card if you don't use DSLR and stuff.

oops, bought it with the 300D
why did you say " as long as you dont use it with DSLR " ?
I got it with canon 300D , all for $2000.
seems like the market price now for the 300D ( 1800 )
so about $200 for the 512MB.
so far the speed wise no complaints
comparable to TRANSCEND 30x.
strangely enough the card says " made in japan".....
kingston is usa brand , right ?
as far as SDRAM is concerned the KINGSTON brand is well received
as some consider it as high speed ram. Wonder if they too make
something special with this..........

Using one now, about the same speed as the 1Gb Microdrive. Fast enough for normal DSLRs, unless you're talking D1H or 1D territory.

wat make of CF card would be good for the 300D then? any recommendations and facts to substantiate?
