    wow it worked. You have to follow that process though...or else the sale is only like $90 or so. Also, included is a free 1GB USB card. That's super weird. Hopefully I dont get an email soon stating my order is invalid...

    I just ordered two 4GB and they threw in a "1GB USB 2.0 DataTraveler I" for free. Don't know if it is any good, though.

    OK -- Here's a question I've been wanting to ask for a while. How fast a card do I really need? On my 30D, is the camera or the card the limiting factor? I currently use a Sandisk Extreme - but is that overkill? Would the Kingston Elite 133 do me as well?

    I think I just answered my own question with a bit of Googling. This link might help others too:

    I think I'll stick with the SanDisk

    In my current camera (3 frame RAW buffer K/M A2) I notice the difference between the different speeds. I notice from between the <100 cards to the 133 cards and from the 133s to the >250s. But what really makes the faster cards worth it is the read/write speed to/from the computer. Most of my cards are >250 and I really love browsing around right off the cards or editing the RAWs and saving the 50 to 200 meg PSD files back to the card - all almost instantly.

    Why do you save PSD files back to the card? I do everything on the computer.

    I shoot everything in RAW (not crazy enough to do RAW + JPEG). Will it really slow me down to go with a 133? The numbers say it is slower, but how noticable is that?
