Hmm.. write speed seems pretty close to the Transcend's 30x card on the EOS 10D.

Seem to be slower in a couple of the other tests though.

But with 5 yrs warranty and at $395, seems to be a good buy.

Based on Rob's website, the Kingston 1024MB (with edge stamp "THNCF1G02MA") on a Canon 1Ds is on the lower end of the speed list. The write speed for JPEG files is 1193KB/sec. If 1X is defined as 150KB/sec, then it is roughly 8X.

i dun think it's the best card for your 1Ds as it is rather slow by comparison, but of course, it's a good buy considering the price and capacity ratio....
