    Just picked up a couple of 1 gig compactflash cards for 5 bucks each thanks to the Staples deal in Hot Deals. This is anticipation of a future Canon XTi purchase. How many shots can I expect to get on one of these?

    I get over 400 on my 2gig, so I would expect around 200 for your 1gigs. (large jpeg fine, that is)
     
  4. how large are your image files though, this sounds like what I get with my 8mp camera I think :dunno:

    Thanks, maybe I'll pick up a few more tomorrow. For that price you can't beat it.

    link to Hot Deals thread
    5 dollars for 1 gig sandisk cf card, sd card, or usb drive

    good enough for what I need

    edit: just realized I forgot to add the link like a dumbass. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3059306
    They changed the coupon though. The $10 off for cards is gone. They must've gotten wise.

    10- 1gb SD cards
    1- 1gb USB flash drive
    2- 1gb Memorystick Duo cards

    i had printed out seperate coupons for each one. the lady refused to sell them to me so i called a manager over and told him to ring me up on each individual purchase.

    he asked if i got the coupon from slick deals. I told him I got it from the Staples website. I pulled up the link on one of his computers, he made a few phonecalls and said the coupon was for some kind of elite member, or whatever they call them.

    Long story short, he wouldnt sell them to me until i asked for corprates phone number and threatened to complain about it. he gave me what i wanted and i went on my way.

    I get 179 RAW and 377 FineJPG w/ my 2GB, so I'd have to say about 89 RAW and 188 FineJPG w/ a 1GB.
