"Do I need a high speed card?"



          

Ok, just about to order my D50 and I was going to order a new SD card too. Is a high speed card that necessary? I believe I read that this camera has a 32MB buffer so card speed is not as important. Is that true enough in most shooting situations? Or should I get the high speed card?

If you are going to do any continuous frame shooting it would be advisable to get a card that will handle at least 6 meg transfers.

Can you reccomend a good 1 Gig card? I'm looking to spend 125ish USD.
Thanks!

Costco has a 1 GB Sandisk Ultra II SD card for about $90.

GREAT! I was just there today, but I didn't bother looking. I had a hard enough time just maneuvering through the hoards of people.
