Just want to find out which CF cards do you guys use. Mind sharing the brand, model, cost and reason why? I'm currently using Lexar 2GB 80x. Cost me $115.

Well, this is not a Nikon related topic, please do post it in the general discussions sub-forum in future.

To answer the question,

I use Lexar 80x 2GB card and a Transcend 120x 2GB

Both works well and fast. ;)

In the order I acquired them:

Brand: Kingston
Model: 512mb
Cost: $190
Reason: I needed a CF card to use when I bought my 300D

Brand:Lexar
Model: 1GB 80X Prof. series 2nd edn.
Cost: $158
Reason: I wanted a higher capacity card, there was a MO here on CS, someone told me Lexar is good :)

Brand: Kingston
Model: 1GB Elite Pro
Cost: $100
Reason: Wanted another card, this seemed ok.

Brand: Transcend
Model: 2gb 120x
Cost: $85
Reason: Needed another card, this one was fast

It's amazing how much prices have dropped :)

Twinmoss 4GB 140x - $130 :thumbsup:

I have been using for 6 months daily without any data corruption. Just bought a few more cards.

It is faster than the Kingston , Lexar and Sandisk cards that I own.

Any major brand of cards would be fine. To date, I'm still using a couple of Hagiwara's, two Sandisks as well. Question is, how are you gonna be able to access them fast enough when you're shooting, and need to change cards on-the-fly.

So far, only Sandisk for me.

I have the normal 512mb, 256mb & 128mb plus a Ultra II 1gb & a Extreme III 1gb.

Hhhmmmm....maybe I should go for a Extreme IV 2gb to complete my collection..... NAH!!:sticktong
