    I'm new to DSLRs and just ordered the Nikon D200...I'm looking into compactflash memory and am leaning towards a card with a 20mb/sec sequential read/write speed...the camera is 10mp and is capable of 5fps...what is the best way of finding out if the card is fast enough and what speed is necessary in a card to reach the camera's capabilities?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Depending on what file you're shooting the D200 has a buffer of at least 19 shots no matter which card you use. For most shooting any old CF card will do with the D200 but of course the faster the better.

    I'd also stick to name brands... I was once burned by a no name card. I recommend the SanDisk Extreme series.

    I can't agree more.
