Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these two memory cards. Is the 133x a lot faster than the 80x? I plan to shoot in RAW mode so im guessing that the faster card would help but is it worth the extra money? Thanks.

The 80X card is already extremely fast, so paying a lot of extra money for a 133X isn't really worth it.
And I doubt that the D70 can actually handle 133X speed, it will work....but it probably will write in a slower speed!

The 133X just adds to the download speed using a USB 2.0 HS reader. The D70 will transfer at about 4.5MB/sec (about 30X) with a Sandisk Extreme 512 card.

For in-camera shooting speed the difference would be negligable. And the only time you need the speed is in continuous mode.
