I would suggest two memory cards. You don't want your only one going pear-shaped at the crucial moment I use three and I'm sure others have more.

Oops sorry Dod - I have bought a 1GB, 2GB and 4GB in the last couple of weeks and confused the pricing a bit;

The 1GB was 47 ish, the 2GB was 77 (sorry Gemok missed the vital "2" in your post !) and a 4GB most recently for about 150 !

All from Picstop - although they are listed cheaper in other places but not generally listed as in stock for them !

Didn't mean to mislead ...

BTB the service from Picstop was excellent !

The only thing I'd say about that seller is, the postage charge is a pure ripoff, however he's selling over 10,000 units a month with only a couple of hundred negs.

oh yes I have 4 x 512mb cards, that can hold 70odd shots per piece.

yeah I know he's ripping people off on the postage but works out same sorta price or cheaper than other sellers just avoiding paying ebay fees I guess.
I asked him about combined shipping got this in reply

For example, if you need 3 items, you have to pay 3 item prices with 3 shipping costs (insurance). Sorry, it seems outrages, but we do have some reasons for this inconvenience. Have a good day.

If you can get to the 'Focus on Imaging' show at the NEC. I've just got a San Disk Extreme III 133x 1GB for just 49.99, everyone is doing these at this price, they've also got the new Lexar 133x for the same price.

Not really relevant but I enjoyed the exhibition as it was my first and there were some cracking bargins to be had, also had a wirl with a 30d which was very good, if anyone is in the market for their first digital defo go for this.

I've had one of these since July and it has run without fault with about 8,000 odd shutter clicks. Just bought another one today: http://www.memorynet.co.uk/buy/integ...-x40-2gb.shtml

just to check if you dont mind, but write speeds only matter if you fill the buffer and for transfers right?

only asking as its tempting to save the tenner between the 40x and 133x but im not sure if i should just pay the little extra for triple the speed.

As far as I know, from reading DP mag, it says go for the fastest you can afford for future reference with faster writes speeds from your camera etc. The write speeds matter all the time don't they, i.e if it can write to the card @ 20mb/sec it will be better than 5-10Mb/sec??? Not to sure though it might be worth one of the seasoned pros answering this one.

Well by the time you come to buy a camera that can utilise 133x speed, 1gb/2gb cards will likely be too small to be of any real use since sensor size and image file size will have increased too. Larger faster cards will have dropped in price by then too. (hopefully)

With that in mind I'd buy the 40x card since that is easily fast enough to cope with the transfer speeds of current cameras and not leave you hanging around waiting.

SanDisk Ultra II 4GB cards are 134 from Onlinememory.co.uk with free delivery. The 2GB Ultra IIs are 67.

The performance/speed difference between Ultra IIs and Extreme IIIs is negligible in a 20D (and probably not much different in other cameras).

And I wouldn't worry too much about using larger cards as they're virtually indestructible.

just ordered a 2GB Ultra II from picstop. £69.80 delivered. Ordered at 1.00pm and already got an email saying it's dispatched. Looks like decent service on the face of it

You paid £69.80, 45 minutes after I posted the same thing for £67 with free delivery and you have the cheek to call yourself a true Scot?

Tsk. Some people

Ah, but they're only free delivery if you spend 100 or more, otherwise you've got a 2.95 delivery charge. See, I saved myself 15p
