Compact Flash Card (and Others Media) Opinions
Posted 09 August 2007 - 03:30 PM
I was about to pick up a few more Compact Flash Cards for upcoming trips and so far have had good luck with Lexar and my Kingston cards which I have used with some older cameras and which I have now been using in a Canon 30D.
Was about to buy some more cards I figured what better place to raise this topic then here
My main concern is reliability as oppossed to speed of the card. If you find certain sizes of cards more stable, that would be interesting to hear about. (I am looking at 2 Gig+ Cards since a 2 Gig Card will hold about 150 Pictures give or take which is more than enough to carry me through a few dives and I am usually diving in situations where I can switch things out every couple of dives)

I have a 2gb and two 1gb cards.
The 1gb card was replaced FOC by Sandisk after a small problem but apart from that I have complete confidence in the product...

I had two (yes two) Lexar 133X 4GB CF cards I bought from an underwater camera store in California. They were both defective from the get-go and corrupted a number of my images before I isolated that it wasn't my computer, camera, etc. Lexar replaced the cards but took about three weeks to do it and in the meantime I was shooting and had to buy a CF card to hold me. I went with SanDisk on Eric Cheng's advice (he also lost images with Lexar CF card compatibility problem on his Canon 1DX). The Lexar cards I used were compatible with the Nikon d200 they were just both bad (and expensive)!
I'm very happy with the SanDisks and don't use the Lexars much, I have too many CF cards now I think.....
Hope this helps, Carol

Looks like SanDisk Extremes and a reader are on the near horizon and I may also grab a Ritek just in case.
Doing some online shopping now to get the 30D geared up
