    I hate to go off topic, but before anyone buys those Extreme III cards for $300, keep in mind a thread a while back where someone mention going a step up (Extreme IV?) and it fixed his crummy video performance. Seems that would be the main reason for getting expensive performance driven 32gig cards IMO to start with.

    I'd never buy a card larger than 8GB for any camera body. If the card malfunctions, that's a lot of lost data. Some would probably argue that 8GB is too much.

    +1 ^ ^ ^ ^ ^. I have one 8 GB card. It was part of the deal on a body I bought. I've never used for the reason dhilberg mentions. Fear of loosing that much data (images). 4 GB max here. A couple hundred RAW images per card is all I'm willing to risk.

    I could see 32 GB for video, but for still cameras? That's just ludicrous IMO, not to mention very expensive for memory. You can buy 30x that (96GB) of external storage for $299.95.

    I have a 4gb, 2gb, and a 1gb. Started with the 1gb, and after the first time I filled it, I bought the 2gb. Bought the 4gb after filling that.

    Now, a couple years later, I still haven't filled the 4gb yet, and if I did I have 3gb more in my bag.


    I never did the Black Friday thing... I don't really think the deals are worth the hassle...

    Amen to that. Although something just occurred to me: it might make a good photo opportunity. I am now curious to see what the desperate crowds dashing through the doors looking for incredible deals on useless stuff would look like in a couple of carefully measured shots...

    While on our big vacation 3 years ago. We were shooting over 8 gb a day! Now thats shooting Raw+JPG. Lots of shots to say the least. Well over 70 CD's written from a single trip. Talking about wanting a blu-ray writer then. :lol: Even a DVD writer would have been nice then.

    At the time we had a couple 4gb cards and several 1gb cards. Now we have 3-Extreme III 8GB's, 3-Extreme III 4-GB's and the original 4's and 1's. As I actually ran out of HD space on that trip. Had to stop twice for 50-pack CD's.

    And I figured with megapixels still going up. The bigger cards are going to be needed sooner or later.

    I'm with you. There's really no such thing as black Friday, it's mostly just clearing out stock and lowering prices that were jacked up the week before.

    On the other hand, Cyber-Monday is where it's at
