Get the DSCM series. They are less power hungry. The original DMDM series are well known as power vampires.Originally posted by poseidon
got an offer for 6 mths old MD (340MB) for $200, isit worth it? Just asking for opinion of the big bros here...
Not necessary so. A lot still depends on the camera. The controller has a very big part to play in it.Originally posted by TheZard
i can get a new one for $180 only so $140 would be a better price. also the 2nd generation MD are much better, this 340MB might be the 1st gen which had access problem & makes a lot of noise. i once tried out one with my Canon S20 then immediately sold it off, not worth it. the 2nd gen MD, the 1GB ones, access speeds are much better than CF cards.
i did a 'back to back' trial by 'moving' files from the camera to the PC then back. then i used a CFII reader. result is the 340MB is not much of a neat gadget. maybe i'm too demanding. but that time i only use a 128MB CF & just moved a few tiff files, i know, its not fair comparison but i don't really like IBM.Originally posted by Richard
