Quick question: Who has the best price on CF cards at present? probably looking for a couple of 8G cards.

any preference for brand or speed? if it's purely on price, then there's buckets out there quite cheap...

e.g. http://www.technologyc​entre.co.nz …CF+CompactFlash​+Card.html (external link)


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II (broken), and an M5, along with a M6 destined for 720nm
TF posting: here :-)

Man, that's a massive price difference. I have always used Sandisk and the 8G Extreme is about $120.00; Not sure any of my bodies will exceed the CF write speed so that doesn't really matter.

I wonder if there is any realistic difference in their reliability?

EDIT: Decided to go with Sandisk (known reliability for me) but went down to the Ultra II which is more than fast enough for me, about $70.00 for 8G.

Welcome to Auckland!


It's been a while since we last did anything like a meet up.

I think it's about time we organized another.

Now more than ever we need to be a community, working together and for each other, as photographers, as lovers of photography and as members of POTN.
