got this in an email from a vendor, definitely rebadged, hopefully its really that fast
that + fw800 = win
ext IV are supposedly 40, but at a much higher price tag
what reader do you use?
i bought an 8gig no name sdcard for $35 at frye's. that thing is slow as hell.
sandisk extreme, fw800 on the road, fw400 at home(15"mbp only has 1 fw800 and the min external drive uses it )
and yeah, you gotta pay to play.
a lot of sd readers can't do sdhc yet
Thats because SD sucks
dual cards in camera ftw
though nikon got that right with 2 CF.
canon didn't get anything right till the 2n, when you could write RAW to one, jpeg to the other. Sadly I bought before the 2n was out
Dual cards is nice but like you said, I wish it was dual CF. SD in my MkIII is slloooowwowowowlslslslwoslsallslasowowowowwwwww!~
i have the 15" mbp too, and i just daisy chain the reader and my external drive together on fw800. Your drive doesn't have an extra connector on it?
I never thought of that
no ducati edition no care
FWIW, Sandisk still has a rebate going on for their Extreme III and IV cards. I bought 2 4gig CF Extreme IV's for 89 apiece, with the rebate knocking off 70 dollars off the total. Comes out to 54 dollars a card or so. Expires on 3/30 though.
Bought mine at Beards and Hats.

i cant believe how cheap these things are now
I bought the cheap 8gb SDHC from newegg.com and have not noticed any speed issues. Maybe I am not picky enough yet?
in camera won't make much difference
Do you shoot in RAW or jpg?
$30 of the firewire reader I might have to order it!
EDIT its either 30 credit for another item or 30 visa gift card.
Best reason for SD in the Canons are cards like the SD Ultra II Plus with the built in USB connector. No cables and no card readers FTW when doing something quick and dirty.
Where did you get a FW800 reader?
Also where do you get those prices on those cards?
Too bad their stock is trash and dropped over 50% on me for the past year.
got the reader from Beards and Hats
