I have a Canon 350D and would like to know if there would be any noticable difference between using Sandisk Ultra 2 cards and Extreme 3 in it on continuous mode (burst)? I have an Ultra 2 at the moment. Thanks

From the tests I can see, it looks like there would be a negligible difference in them.

The camera's image processing/interface to media speed appears to be limited to a bit over 6MB/Second (with larger raw files -- slower with jpeg, probably due to processing time).

So, you'll get a diminishing rate of return with a faster card, since it looks like the camera becomes the bottleneck versus the card.

Rob Galbraith has some speed tests here:
