    never tried a Kingston b4...but currently I'm using a Transcend 30X 512mb and its working beautifully with my C5050...I suppose you're using C5050 too?...cos different cams will have different speeds with different cards...what I'm more concern with is the compatibility issues that might surface by which I might lose information thru problems writing into the card...losing info for me is my top priority...write speed comes secondary lah...had bad experience previously with another CF card that caused me to lose like 200 over Mb of pics...tat was a nightmare man...

    Where did you get the Transcend 30X 512mb? Looking like crazy for it and can't find the darn thing. Considering a Kingston if I can't get it. Anyone has issues with the kingston and a C5050?

    Dun mentioned it. Anyway, I find Ridata and Hagiwara quite reliable too...some would be surprised at the lacklustre performance of SanDisk CF tho'...but pls remember tha Ultra II is not included in the review tho'

    I know...well...a lot of these performance test is very dependent on the camera that accesses the cards...its kindof difficult to determine the performance of a CF card if the CF interface plays such a major factor in the first place...heh...guess wil hvta take the leap of faith then...
