    They didn't have the stock when the show opened as it was still stuck at the airport. He commented that the typhoon in Taiwan had delayed the shipment. I had to leave my business card and came back to collect my pc at 3pm today.

    Hey Wai, don't you use a 1D? If you use that then normal one is ok because you have a big buffer so its ok...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    Don't wait for the doors to be opened. A few of us sneaked in to the Sandisk booth even before the door was opened for public.

    The 10 pcs was gone in a minute...didn't even form a real "queue".

    I saw only 1GB. Not sure if there is 2GB or not....

    Anyway, Transcend 45x is slower on my D70 than Ultra II, in terms of number of frames burst @ 3fps full-res. Even the first batch of Lexar 80X WA is slower than Ultra II (supposedly there is a 2nd batch Lexar 80X WA which is the improved version, check Rob Galbriath's site).

    I'd try on the Ridata 52x 512MB CF on my 300D, problematic! Luckily the reseller willing to let me upgrade it to Sandisk UltraII 512MB, wow... superb performance as compared to my old 128MB CF. no regret on this UltraII card

    Just saw FlashcardBestBuy selling it at a very surprising price Sandisk UltraII 512MB going for S$159 !!! BUY BUY BUY!

    wtf is the difference between the extreme and the ultra II? cf type? dunno if theyre different. if they arent, the ultra II has twice the write speed.

    How much is a 1Gig CF? any brand with 30X and above speed. Any brand will do...

    If u all read the news a month earlier, CF card prices will plunge further. Everyone is trying to clear their 512MB now to make way for 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.
