    anybody in Canada know of a good source for reasonably priced CF cards? I mean somewhere in Canada preferably online.

    The cheapest I seem to come across are still running me $125CDN after tax (1gb)

    Looking for 1gb regular Lexar, Sandisk etc. Nuthin extreme or things like that but would prefer reliable brand name cards.

    thanks.

    Jon, are you trying to find online in Canada due to the shipping costs?

    I know some stores offer international flat rate charges that are more than affordable. I don't know how they handle international shipments...have you tried Newegg.com? Maybe just place a mock order and check out their shipping? I don't know, just a thought.

    trying to avoid any other charges such as shipping, exchange, duty etc. Lot of these places will only deal with couriers and the extra charges are horrendous sometimes. never know what you're gonna get stiffed with when it crosses the border.

    I'll check that place anyway. thanks.

    BTW: A year ago I got a 1gb lexar ultra II off him for 115 cdn with tax.

    I'm sure it's cheaper now.
