That is good price.Peter_Tee said:Hi,
I just bought Transcend 2 GB 80x CF card. The price was 152 $. I bought it from Best Bargain, Sim Lim Square 5th floor.
So far nothing to complain with the card. Fast enough for me.
Same shop is selling Kingston Elite Pro HS 4 GB cards for 380 $. I decided to buy 2 x 2 GB as price was 80 $ cheaper.
I did some tests... Canon 20D is able to take 6 shots in burst while shooting in RAW. I have 1 GB SanDisk Ultra II CF and 2 GB Transcend 80x CF cards.donchua said:That is good price.
How is it speed when shoot raw with burst?

Both were equal fast to store all the data back to card. It took about 13 seconds to complete the whole operation - I started measurement when pushing the camera trigger and ended the time measurement when all the data was written to CF. As a comparasion to my 4 GB Kingston Elite Pro HS card was much slower, it took about 18 seconds to complete the same process.
Hope this helps!

Less than $400?? the 4GB version already costs around that price.judeseah said:won't recommend this microdrive.
price is cheap,
something like less than $400 during the Sitex 05.
got the 4GB version.
took 20D more than 12mins
and 5D 10mins to format the card.
Pls do not format a card for camera use in a computer...:nono:Snoweagle said:If i were you i'll slot the CF card into my computer and format it. It'll be much faster.
Oh okie...will take note of that, thanks!theRBK said:Pls do not format a card for camera use in a computer...:nono:
The computer will format it with some computer OS based file system that may interfere with camera operation...we don't have to format all the time and I think waiting longer once in a while is not too big a problem compared to possible card problems...
