Would have been "pure speculation" if a competitor's product with the capability did not exist currently.  But with such a product in the market for around a year, I would term it as "intelligent projection" rather than "pure speculation".

LOL - you can call it whatever you like - you know absolutely nothing about what is coming out, when it's coming out or what it will do.  That's pure speculation.  I suppose you also posted about the 40D coming out last fall right?  After all, there was plenty of 'intelligent projection' going around about it

The only fact is, there is no Canon out now.  Unless you work for Canon, for example, there is nothing intelligent about your projection/speculation - simply what is called 'wishfull thinking'.

It may have been someone else.  I was never interested in the 20D/30D or its successors, including any upcoming 40D.  

I would be very interested however, in any new wide angle lenses that Canon comes out with and also the replacement for the 5D.

There's also download speed to be considered.  With the appropriate card reader you'll spend significantly less time sending the files to your computer.

Hello, I'm new to digital photography. I've filled a few Extreme III cards and now I'm stuck as I haven't been able to find a card reader which I can plug into my USB port. Could you advise which is the best card reader for this card? I'd appeciate any advice you might have. I looked on the Sandisk site and it seems to me that some of the card readers can only read JPEG files (but surely I'm mistaken?).  Thanks in anticipation,  Phil Lamerton

Any compact flash card reader will read the card. Some will read it faster.

There is a great deal of information on the [a href=\"http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/multi_page.asp?cid=6007]CF/SD page[/url] of Rob Galbraith's web site. Use the drop-down menu at the top right of the page to access all the data.

THANKS.

I did not use a 30D, but faster card is indeed working faster on camera such as Canon 1Ds MK2 and in my digital back, P45. Once the buffer filled up, the faster card can refresh the buffer faster, and let you shoot at lower continuous rate, but still faster than with a slower card. I was using cards I bought a few years ago (many brands) mixed with new Extrem III and IV and you can see the difference. Another matter is that if you eventually have the newer card reader can support faster transfer rate, then it makes download a lot faster. I suggest faster card the better, you can use it today, and still use them tomorrow.

Just to clarify ...

Quote
If you need it for the extreme temp ranges that's one thing, but if you just need good performance, anything more than the Ultra II is a waste of money, the camera isn't fast enough to take advantage of faster cards.
You say "... the camera isn't fast enough ..."

Do you mean the Canon 30D isn't fast enough to take advantage of the Sandisk Extreme III cards?

I acknowledge Killer Angel's query mentioned that specific camera, but other camera's will certainly be able to take advantage of the extra "III" speed.  My Nikon D200 gains a whole 1 second faster write-to-CF-card per image with the Sandisk Extreme III 4GB compared to the earlier Sandisk Ultra II 4GB card.

And I really appreciate that extra 1 Second when I choose to chimp ...  

Colin

P.S. My timings are my own in-camera + stop-watch tests and not Rob Galbraith's figures.
Full RAW(uncompressed NEF) + high quality JPEG:
Sandisk Extreme III 4GB, 28 image burst - 8.3MB/Sec to CF card.
Sandisk Ultra II 4GB, 27 image burst - 5.3MB/Sec to CF card.
Colin

Edited to add that with both cards the D200 accepted 18 images on the fly, at 5FPS, before starting to queue the remainder. The balance of the 27(or 28) images were taken as fast as the D200 could process those earlier in its queue - but I'm in danger of digressing from the original question ... sorry.

Yes, it's definitely worth buying/using faster cards when possible

Yes, I mean the 30D.

If you are buying memory for your 'future' camera purchase(s), save your money and do it when you are ready.  If you buy beyond the camera now, you only burn cash.  Buy a better camera and the same memory will be a lot less money then.  Or think of it this way - when you buy a faster camera there will be even faster memory out - and you'll be in the same position as now.

Don't over buy your memory, it's like putting premium in a car that only needs regular.  It doesn't hurt anything but your wallet.

I can't understand what went wrong with the memory cards.
Some time back I also lost my pictures from my canon. I have to used Stellar Phoenix Digital Media Recovery Software to recover my images from the memory stick.

So can anybody tell me what are the ways in which these cameras should be handled so that no data loss can occur in future.

It's clear to me that you are a photographer on a budget with very specific needs. It is the hight of arrogance  for you to assume that everyone else in the world suffers your limitations.

There are many reasons to purchase ahead of the curve if you can rationalize it or simply afford it. It appears that you can do neither. Good for you. I'm glad that you can work within your limitations. And I don't mean that sarcastically.

Please feel free to offer advice but please don't lecture or try to dictate. It only underscores your lack of maturity.

As for me, I like being able to use my CF cards for multiple purposes including as fast thumb drives. There is a plethora of new adapters for CF cards enabling them to be used as fast cache for laptops; everything from IDE and SATA adapters to ExpressCard/34. And of course the more traditional USB and FireWire 400/800. You can even use them to replace the harddrive in Apple's iPod Mini.

So I'm willing to pay the premium. You're not. We get. Let it go.
