What CF card you need is based on what camerait will be used in. All of those SanDisk CF cards are faster than the "average" CF card, the Extreme III being the fastest. However most digicams cannot make use of the faster data I/O throughput -- only the higher end digital SLR cameras have optimized CF interfaces. If using a fast USB 2.0 or FireWire card reader you will see faster transfer times when downloading from the card though.

Your tag line indicates that you have or have had numerous film cameras but that you don't yet have a digicam so I am puzzled at your need for CF cards ?

Hi Steve,

The CF cards are required for my newly owned Nikon D70S Digital SLR.

The tag line that you see was created in 2002 and not modified since then.

I recently bought 2 X 512 MB Sandisk Ultra II cards, I guessthey would perform nicely in the D70S.

Thanks

AK
