veeeeeeeeeeerrryy tempting. It's not the fastest card for the 1D, but it's the largest size it takes from the only company I buy cards from...



Card Jpeg Speed Raw Speed B&H Price
SanDisk Extreme IV 2GB 2.891MB/sec 3.193MB/sec $54.95
SanDisk Extreme III 2GB 2.735MB/sec 3.191MB/sec $39.95
SanDisk Extreme 2GB 2.723MB/sec 3.082MB/sec n/a
SanDisk Ultra II 2GB 2.692MB/sec 3.082MB/sec $29.95

and that's +$4.95 shipping... so this card would be $34.90 delivered from B&H.

Yeah, but that's only $10 less than 2 of the ultras in your OP and they're not enough faster to matter.

I'm ordering one of the 2gb cards now, thanks!

and be careful when you order. It defaults to $7 shipping, but you can select free....

I know most of us on here use the San Disk Ultras and Extremes. The main difference in the expensive cards is the read/ write speeds which allow your camera's buffer to clear faster and unload images for PP faster.
