So you're out birding one day and a Great Egret lands in a small pond a few hundred feet away and you notice you've only got 15 frames left on your card. You get out your card case and open it up and this is what you see. Which one do you choose?

I wouldnt need to choose because I use a 2gb card.

I never swap cards in the field if I can help it.

I prefer Lexar, but that is partially because I've heard bad reports of SanDisk's post-sales support. Then again, there seems to be bad comments about Lexar Lately (on another recent thread.)

Both make really good cards, so quality wise you are safe either way.

Sandisk. Since it's the biggest producer of such flash drives, they're pretty good at it.

I also say either. I've used both over the last 2 years and never had an issue. Both are lifetime warranties I believe and both perform about the same on Canon 350, 300, 20D. My own personal choice is whichever is less expensive at the time.

Doesn't matter, they're both great cards.
