    Compact Flash?

    Hello Everyone,

    As you know from other posts, I ordered the Cannon Digital Rebel. After some shipping snafus on UPS' fault, I should receive the camera on Monday. I have already purchased an Extra Battery, Case, and Lens filter. The things I still have on my list include a compact flash card and a reader (for my PC).

    I was curious if you all can recommend a brand of Compact Flash. Does it matter? Are some faster than others?

    Sorry for all the newbie questions...
    Thanks,

    Jake Necessary

    The DReb is a relatively slow camera in terms of data transfer from buffer to CF card. While Rob Galbraith thinks the camera will benefit from whatever small edge a fast card will deliver, I disagree. At best the DReb will post about a 30% increase in transfer speed, which at 1.3MB/sec. doesn't mean much, compared to the 4+MB/sec in the D70.

    But you be the judge:

    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...
