    I guess it's true that if you have a dslr then you can put yourself out there as a photographer and have a website. I asked this guy to take some detailed pics of the memory card to see that it's not fake and this is what he takes after everyone calls me an idiot. Only two are useful. This is a local board and half the members have so and so photography in their sigline.

    What were you expecting? I'm curious how a picture is going to show you if the cards are 'real' or not.

    rounded edges and serial number are the major signs

    they were all laughing at me and calling me an idiot unfortunately. the forum is full of fail. :o

    * disclaimer - the OPEN 4GB Extreme III CF card pictured is NOT the card you will get. Cards for sale will be SEALED in the plastic pictured in photographs. CF reader is NOT available for sale, and only pictured to further authenticate the Extreme III cards in question. If further detail is needed, please consult with your nearest Best Buy and pay $72.99 + tax for an identical product.

    I wouldn't buy used CF cards anyway, saving a few dollars isn't worth the risk for me. Always new and always from a reputable source!

    I'm just saying buying used CF cards is gambling. Buying them from a reputable dealer like Best Buy, B&H, Adorama, and other places is a little safer... specially if you're going to be adding on.

    Don't hate, appreciate. :mamoru:

    if i got an extreme III instead of my extreme II would i notice faster write speeds after taking a long exposure pic? 20d if that matters.

    you are going to be limited by the write speed on the camera.
