View Full Version : Digital Memory (CF Cards)

12-07-2004, 06:37 AM
Hey all,

I'm getting my new digital camera soon (Nikon 8700), and I currently have a 256 Mb memory card, and I have a feeling that won't be enough in the long run for my photos (since I have a feeling once I get decent with the camera to take most shots in RAW format), and am looking for a 1 or 2 Gb CF card.

My question is what band, model, vendor would you recommend for such a card? I know there are 'regular speed' and 'high speed' CF cards. What's the difference? is it worth buying the high speed since the Nikon will freeze up the camera while it's writing the file?

Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
