| p.1 #19 · Anyone recommend best bargain CF card for D800? |
Thanks everyone, appreciate all the input, and a few of the answers are the exact help I was hoping for.
Some 32GB for $30 would be great, I'll look into that tomorrow, otherwise the $50 recommendations are what I'll pursue.
To the ones that say "hey you spent $3000 on a D800, what's a few hundred more?" or "why skimp on cards", can I just offer that you reexamine the soundness of your own suggestion? Why waste money needlessly just because you can afford to? It's never wise to throw away money based on bad logic, and I don't mean that insultingly, but to help you protect your money from being wasted in little bouts of self-justifying impulses that I'm tempted by as well...but in the end the money is wasted and it doesn't come back to you. And guess what...there is always more you want, and always more you can't afford...unless you save where you can or make much more money than your desires require. Human nature always wants more, no matter how much you make, so making more than your desires can afford is pretty hard to do. I can afford the D800 first, by God's Grace to me, and second by trying not to waste money by giving someone $100 for something that I can get for $50. I don't tip someone 100% when the norm is 15% or 20%, so why would I waste money by tipping a CF card maker when they're not giving me anything different than an equal CF card maker? Do you see how your logic is hurting you? Doesn't hurt me , because I won't embrace it..but if I can help you save your own money I'd offer the above as food for thought, as money is too valuable to throw away. Now of course, add up those fifty dollar savings, and it's not long before you have an extra $500, which of course will buy a lens, can be given to someone in need, can buy a vacation of memories that will last a lifetime, etc....but when we take the "oh what's an extra fifty" when I already spent three grand approach....well the companies don't help you avoid yourself...they just take your money. I'd rather help you have the money for what you want when you want it, by showing you the mistake of being so careless. Hope this helps, really not trying to attack the logic, just point out its fallacy that will hurt your own budget and wants, as there is always more that we want, and we can't afford absolutely everything, be it cameras, cars, planes, homes, land, a business...pick the scale of purchase...wisdom is always applicable to spending, no matter how much you have or don't.
