I just had an email from 7dayshop who are selling 4GB CF Sandisk Extreme III cards for just 17.99. A very good deal that avoids the worry of the dreaded fake cards on Ebay.

I purchased one a few weeks ago. It works well.

They also have some 8GB cards that work well in E400's (for the same price)

Thanks for the pointers to the Sandisk cards. Amazon will be getting an order shortly as it's "Super Saver Delivery"!

I bought one of the 8Gb cards (by Dane-Elec) from 7-day-shop the other day & seems fine so far. I have other cards made by the same company, and while they aren't the fastest in the universe, they are fine for my purposes. I prefer cards around 4Gb, however, on the "not too many eggs in one basket" principle.

I Have 6 of these cards, very good value and excellent performers in the E-3.

Got 6 as when out i tend to set a count down timer and change cards on the hour and cycle them. That way if i 'lose' a card it has a selection of images from throughout the day rather than a large chuck from one section of the day.

That smacks of being organised!

Yeah i know, but as the saying goes Once Bitten........



Lost a full mornings shooting on the last day of a trip to Prague last year, so vowed to be organised and minimise losses from then on.
