    I looked all over the internet (excluding auction sites) for the cheapest CF card right now, and for 8 gb, Amazon has the best price. Just thought you all might want to know, since I haven't seen any good deals on CF cards recently.

    The RAW files from the 40D are a bit larger than those from the 30D and I found myself going through 2 gb cards at about twice the rate I previously did.

    Amazon usually has great deals on them.
    I know I got my SD card from them for my PSP and it works great!

    Can't format a 16gig card in the xxD series, have to do it on a computer (which I have heard is less reliable), plus, they're at a bad point on the cost / capacity curve.

    yeah really not possible that you loose a 16 gb card. I could definitely win the lottery easier than I, or an assistant, could loose a small piece of plastic during 12 hours of hectic shooting.

    in 7 years of digital I've never lost a card and only lost 6 images, all at once, back in 2000 when recovery software wasn't readily available and was a result of user error.

    They need to just put CF hard drives into cameras like they do into video camcorders now.

    Canon needs to import your brain onto their board of directors and make trillions of dollars using it to generate ideas that propel them so far beyond the competition that they create a whole new market where they are their own competitor.

    Do you often have 20-25 cards during a hectic 8 hour shoot?



    I've never lost anything. The time something does get lost, its big $.
