I recently purchased my 7D and have a lot of SDs from my previous 60D. Not to throw all these cards to waste, i am looking to buy the SD to CF adapter.

Is this available in our market? i combed Sim Lim area and no one selling it. Even from market place is a totally no-no.

What's the price like and where to get it?

Thanks peeps.:)

I thought of getting but I have my doubts whether my transfer speed will get slowed down significantly using another "medium" ie adapter.

anyone can advise? if lossless then makes sense.

For those interested, you can read up on this older thread.

It seems performance takes a hit. And most of these adapters are Type II (thicker), and most cameras cannot take Type II CF cards, so be sure to check your camera's compatibility before making the jump. Further down in the abovementioned thread, you will be able to see one of the ways to mod the adapter card to fit a Type I slot. But do note that not all adapter cards are made the same way.

This gets my vote. I always preferred CF cards: more sturdy than these little SD thingies. Adapters are a fine source for trouble whenever possible..
