My camera and manual are on loan at the moment so I can't check. I want to order a few CF cards because I'm finding my 4gb cards fill up quickly when shooting NEF. Would a 16gb work or even something larger? Mark Stephan USN, retired
Nikon website has tested & certified the Sandisk & Lexar CF Cards up to 8gb/s. Also, Check the B&H website for example. Sandisk is having their "Spring Savings" sale on their cards. Cards are getting cheaper & they are offering decent rebates at this time. All the best. Carl..
Lexar is also having a March rebate at the major photo distributors (e.g., Adorama, B&H, Roberts). In my shopping for my new D700 I found the Lexar cards to be the lowest price after rebate.
I was initially shopping for Transcend 300x 8GB cards. But the SanDisk Extreme IV was competitive. Then I saw the Lexar rebate ($60 back on an 8GB card) and realized I was about to become a new Lexar customer.
8 GB would be the best choice because any card over that size, you risk losing way too many shots: cards do go bad.... As hard as that's to believe, it has happened to me. Now, if you have an 8GB that goes bad, that may not be as bad losing all your shots on a 16GB.
