    I need to buy a new CF card and was looking at the Kingsford 8MB cards they have three different ones with different speeds. My husband said you need to know the speed of your card interface anyone know off hand or can look it up for my Canon Rebel I have misplaced my little manual for my camera.

    Here are the three I was looking at
    At Adorama


    Kingston Technology 8 GB, 133x Elite Pro Compact Flash Memory Card

    Kingston Technology 8 GB, 133x Ultimate Compact Flash Memory Card with Recovery Software.

    I just got the Kingston 8 GB Ultra II CompactFlash Card and it works fine. It actually seems that songs save quicker to this card than the 1gb card it came with.

    It required me to get a Compact flash card so I got that one. I guess as an IT analyst I should have done some more research on the card...

    Either way its working for me and I can take 6666 8MP pictures.

    this link unfortunaly doesn't show the interface speed for the said cards above. The cards on the link were last updated back in 2005

    Any x133 card will be more than fast enough for a Rebel. x133 means it will save your photos at the speed of 20mb/s, so it will take about half a second to write each 10mb RAW photo. I use a card that's half as fast (10mb/s) in my XTi and don't need a faster one. You'll be perfectly fine with any of the cards you mentioned.

    Thank that is what my husband was thinking, question are you using a x45 card? My husband says that would be about 7mb/s thanks

    I would go with the x133. Means less buffering if your doing continuous shooting. So you dont have to wait so long or maybe even not at all for the "busy" to go away.

    Kingston and Sandisk I know both have lifetime limited warranty's. What ever brand you go with, read reviews and check the warranty. Kingston is VERY good about replacing defective products. Simpletech is another decent brand.

    It is pretty easy to calculate. x1 stands for 150kb/s (0.15mb/s), so x10 would stand for 1.5mb/s and so on. I've got a x66 Sandisk card which is roughly 10mb/s
