p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D30 CF Speeds


I was wondering if anyone here with a D30 has had any experience with the newer and faster CF cards on their D30? I've been to the CF Database on Rob Galbraith's site, but the D30 database isn't being updated anymore. I'd like to know if something like the Lexar 80X or similar card will help or if it is overkill for my particular camera.

Thanks,

Steve

it is probably overkill, but the prices CF cards are now, it probably doesnt matter

Hi Steve,

I have owned a D30, D60 and 10D and I don't believe they benefit from faster CF cards. The bottleneck with these cameras is the electronics.
Canon seem to have cured that now with the 20D by what I've read

Ditto on the above comments. However, I have a new 45x Transcend 1GB card which seems "significantly" faster than my old 512MB Simpletech that I bought many moons ago, especially when clearing the buffer. You may find some improvement with faster cards especially if you are already using older cards, but you probably won't reach the astounding (Ultra, 80X, whatever) speeds claimed by the manufacturers..

Actually, now that I've carefully looked at current prices (at B&H, the Lexar 40X is $89 and the 80X is $79 after $20 rebate), I guess my question somewhat irrelevant.

But I do appreciate everyone's comments
