    dual cards in camera ftw


    though nikon got that right with 2 CF.
    canon didn't get anything right till the 2n, when you could write RAW to one, jpeg to the other. Sadly I bought before the 2n was out :wtc:

    i have the 15" mbp too, and i just daisy chain the reader and my external drive together on fw800. Your drive doesn't have an extra connector on it?

    FWIW, Sandisk still has a rebate going on for their Extreme III and IV cards. I bought 2 4gig CF Extreme IV's for 89 apiece, with the rebate knocking off 70 dollars off the total. Comes out to 54 dollars a card or so. Expires on 3/30 though.

    I bought the cheap 8gb SDHC from newegg.com and have not noticed any speed issues. Maybe I am not picky enough yet?

    Best reason for SD in the Canons are cards like the SD Ultra II Plus with the built in USB connector. No cables and no card readers FTW when doing something quick and dirty.
