    Default CF Cards

    What brand(s) of the CF cards do you use? And how well do you think it has served you?

    uh, that's not a very technical question. maybe you might want to rephrase it somewhat..

    Seems clear enough to me that SanDisk and Lexar have a good standing in the market. But there are also many other brands. Not sure if they're a good buy in terms of value. I'm planning on a Lexar 40X. Got news that prices might fall next week.

    How useful really is the read/write speed of a fast CF card, if it is used on a camera with limited speed? That, I wonder.

    Don't need news from anyone...just look at how much is a 256mb SD selling 1year+ ago....and

    infact....newer, faster and bigger size is released.... price of smaller size cards will go down....its a fact....

    memory cards price will drop n drop n drop until no new cards is available.... but are u gonna continue to wait for this day? till end of ur life u might still waiting for the cheapest card to come....never ending wait...haahaa...

    Only a fool would wait that long. Just need to wait for a slight plunge and that's good enough. So if its like within 2 weeks or so, a little patience helps.
