Nikon does not update their website on the D700 anymore. Their insturections STILL say to use a TYPE 1 cf card. The last card I bought for it was about three years ago... Lexar UCMA 300x 16 GB card (NOT UDMA 7). Has anyone bought a CF card recently for the D700 (not the S model). I would like to use 32 GB cards of at least 16GB UDMA's. It apears that Nikon has discontinued the D700 (Which I have) and the D700S. With technology changing by the hour, it seems like "planned obsolescence" is back with a vengance. I would hate to have to spend another $3,000+ for an "up to date" camera body, especially since it's technically still a good camera.

Hi there,
My latest purchase of cards was 3 SanDisk Extreme,
60MB/s 16GB, UDMA
Work perfectly,
I needed the space for my BIF shoots, I guess 32GB cards of the same religion would work also,
Never heard of the D700S except Nikon rumours
Regards,
Gary

I just bought 2 16gb Sandisk Extreme 60MB/sec. cards for a newly acquired used D700. Based my decision on information here: http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-9550
B&H has a two pack for just under $100.
btw, Nikon never mase a D700s.

I like to use smaller CF's 4GB, 8's and 16's...and change out more frequently..

Don't like to put all my eggs in one basket when I'm on the road shooting...

No biggie for me...just pull out and change...

I only use Scandisk Pro Class 10's...works well..haven't had a problem.

But, again, I like to change out more frequently than one large CF...

I think you'll find that Nikon's policy is substantially at odds with reality. Most of us are by now using much newer - and technically unqualified - cards. In fact, I'd guess that most if not all of the qualified cards are now out of production, and very possibly completely out of the retail channel. This is particularly true of the older D3.
