It's pretty hard to tell the difference between the Ultra II and the Extreme III on an XTI, so save your money!

I bought a 8gb Ultra II after I got a notice that the 4gb Ultra III I ordered was out of stock. I haven't run into any problems with it.

Transferring off the card with the SanDisk Extreme USB 2.0 Reader is about 12-15mb/s. Not blazing, but certainly fast.


Some cameras, some lenses, plenty of gaffer's tape and beer.

16GB Transcend CF

Real good size & price to performance Ratio

I use 120x 8G and 2 GTranscend cards, have two 1G 80x, but these are a bit slower recording images, can't get as many in rapid succession. 120x are great.

I've used these constantly for 1.5 years, and never had a problem. Transcend is quite a bit cheaper than Sandisk, but similar quality.
Best deals for cards are online - but check recommendations from people first, as I hear fakes are a problem.
