I am planning to buy a new Compact Flash 512Mb for my A95. But should I consider the rapid one's ? Does a rapid CF (like 40x or 80x) has any benefitting effect on the performance of the camera?

I have read that the actual bottleneck is in the processor and the transfer system of the data to the CF and therefore, one should not expect any difference regarding the CF type.

What is the opinion of this forum?

Thanks, Yoel

My general opinion is yes, but to a point. I personally have seen better shot to shot times on a Coolpix 4300 (an old and slow camera). An A95 is a much better camera so I would guess it can take some advantage of a faster card.

Places like NewEgg have 512MB CF cards for $30ish that are 40X-50X or so in speed. Plus, when you upgrade to a faster camera or DSLR, you can use the faster card.
