Sandisk Ultra II is a type I card that is way faster than a IBM/Hitachi MicroDrive, which is in type II packaging (or in another word compatible to type II slot, whichever you like to be known as).

    Share with me more information that I missed out

    Sorry, wus refering to the CF of the early days where it's really slow in storing image snap. As with IBM microdrive, it will be slower cos it's not memory, it's a HD inside!

    Alan Photo has some 4GB 40X Lexar, should be slightly below $2k.

    I think a 4GB CF will get you another 300D or D70.

    so far I have not seen any lexar 80X CF or the new lexar 8GB CF sold in Singapore yet.

    Well, I guess nobody really mind paying the price of a 1 Gb for a 4 Gb CF right?
