    If your camera uses CF, then this will work. There is no difference in compatibility with different brands of CF cards. I happen to have one of these myself, and it works just fine.

    Oh okay, I thought I read something like the XTi only uses Compact Flash I & II, nothing bigger in numbers.

    Doesnt that seem expensive for a 2gb card? Both of my sandisk extreme II 2gbs have been less than 30 bucks in stores. Online they are even cheaper.

    The list that I linked at Newegg had a cheap 2GB card for $16, a 4GB card for $23, an 8GB card for $39, and a 16GB card for $67, delivered.

    Best Buy's price of $46.79 + $4.21 tax = $51 for a 2GB card seems overpriced, but Newegg has that same card for $42, delivered. It happens to score at the top of the speed tests that I linked. I doubt that the faster write speed is worth it for most of us, but if you shoot in burst mode, it may make the difference.

    I bought it for $20 which seems like I still over spent, I was just providing a link to the card so those who didn't know the PNY Card would see it.
