I've been reading alot on this forum and other forums about how compact flash cards have gotten realy cheap and how you can now get an 8GB in sme case under $100. xD cards still seem to be fairly pricey. I was wondering does anyone know of a legitimate source of 2GB xD crads that cost under $40? Anyone know of any deals on 1GB xD cards under $20?

I've done an extensive search of local stores and the usual web sources and the lost prices are around $50. Any ideas of where to search or specific deals would be ,uch appreciated.

Thanks

dave

Funny thing is that at Christmas time I git a 1GB H series card from bhphotovideo from $26. Now $28 seems to be the lowest price for a M series. They has 2GB for $50 back then.

Still waiting to see a 2GB under $40 with shipping or a 1GB $20 with shipping.

Thanks so far for the advice and help

Wait a few weeks and prices should drop. lol You can already buy fast 8GB Secure Digital and CompactFlash cards for under $100 from popular vendors.

With xD Picturecard it's hard to say though. It's the least popular (current) flash memory format. So, you don't have as much competition like you do with the more popular formats like CompactFlash and Secure Digital to help drive costs down (although the nand flash memory used internally shouldn't cost anymore).

It could also go the other way should Olympus/Fuji decide to "join the bandwagon" and go with SD instead.... Look at prices for Smartmedia now that it's obsolete. :-)

Well thanks for all your help but it turns out I got a new camera the Fuji S91100 that can use both CF and xD cards so I got a 2 GB Sandisc Ultra II CF card for under $30 for the camera which gives me 5.5GB of total storage for the camera. Which should be enough for my most demanding photo assignments and fire-rewcue events and incidents I cover.
