    Its a great deal... can't pass this up.
    My 20D eats memory up pretty fast.
     
  9. :o 6.75mb/s, that's pretty slow. But I dunno, maybe you won't even realize it's slow. :dunno:

    Sandisk Extreme III on the other hand have minimum write and read speeds of 20 mb/s :eek3:

    I wouldn't say they're slow. Well, slow to compared to Extreme III's or Ultra II's. I would say they are average to a little above average in speed compared to everything that's on the market.

    These cards would be perfect for the casual shooter. Inexpensive compared to other makes of the same capacity. If you're the person who shoots sporting events and like to fire at 5fps or more...I'd stick with the E III's or Ultra II's.

    E III's and Ultra II's are what I normally use in my 20d. I'll use the Elite Pro in my 300d because that camera is just slow no matter what you put in it.

    Check this site to see how different cards perform in cameras
