    Default Question about memory card adapters

    Hi all,

    I have a couple of 8GB SDHC cards which are brand new and unused (free from my previous purchase of a Canon G11). Recently I just bought an EOS 50D and currently have one 8GB CF card. I was thinking of buying a SD-to-CF card converter adapter so as to utilize my 2 spare SD cards instead of throwing out more money to buy a couple of spare memory cards for the dSLR.

    My question now is, how different will the write speed be? The CF card I'm using with the 50D now is a Sandisk Ultra 8GB 30MB/s which came free with the purchase.

    Appreciate if anyone can provide some useful information regarding my question. Also, where can I purchase such a converter in Singapore?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can purchase the SD/SDHC to CF I/II memory card adapter from shops at Sim Lim Square or Sim Lim Tower.

    The write speed will depends on the speed class rating of the SD/SDHC memory card whose maximum is approximately 30 MB/s IIRC.

    Do you happen to know how much the converter will cost? Thanks for your help.

    I've seen one in Active photo. I don't remember the exact price but it cost less than SGD50.
