Default Going to buy a new CF card

Hi all,

I'm going to buy a Lexar 512MB 40x speed CF card for 170$ US.
it's the fast'st I have seen (on specs..), is it really the best?

You really feel a Huge difference like in the numbers between 4x or 12x speed and this 40x speed?

Thanks alot.

Which camera do you own? Most digicams can not take advantage of the 40X speed. You woul be paying extra and receiving no advantage.

what do you say? well the difference between a 512MB 12x speed and a 512MB 40x speed is 40$ US.

Two things I saw at the Minolta web site:

1. to use a 512mb card you need to make sure that your firmware is up todate.
2. 12X seems to be the fastest card that your camera will support.

Thanks alot,

How do I check my firmware version, and incase I need to update it, how do I do it?


And one more thing, how did you find out my camera will only support up to 12x?

The answer to both questions is to go to the minolta web site. I type in www.minolta.com and the was redirected to the correct site.
