My primary memory card in my XSi, is an 8gb Ultra II (15mb/s). The buffer in fine and RAW, is 4 pictures. I'm hoping someone using an Extreme III (30mb/s) card, could tell me what they're getting for a buffer. Trying to get a hard and fast difference, as opposed to guessing when I could spend the money elsewhere.

Thanks
Chris

The buffer in the XSi is about big enough for 4 frames RAW+Large. If you're shooting in burst/continuous, that's all you'll get. BUT Rob Galbraith's CF/SD database (external link) shows the Extreme III as about 1/3 again as fast in writing to card as the Ultra II. So you'd be back shooting again faster with an Extreme III if you're in burst mode; if you're in single-shot but fast, you'll do even better.
