Please post what sd memory card you are using/ and the speed (example: x40, x50 etc..)

also if you are getting good performance from it

I am trying to decide on which speed memory card to buy.

Thanks- Daniel

I bought a 1GB Sandisk Ultra II. I bought it originally for my camcorder and I don't think it handled 2GB. If I was buying for the F30, I would get the 2GB. It works pretty good as far as I can tell.

I'm using a Kingston 1GB Ultimate (133x), it's much quicker than the standard memory card.

Unlimited burst shots are around 2fps.

I use the Ridata Pro 2gig 120x as my main card and have 2 Ridata 1gigs 40x as my backups. Had to get these since I started shooting in RAW for most of my landscape/wildlife shots.

I'm using a Corsair 2gig 133x card. Found it for $50 after rebate. Nice & fast.

I'm not sure it's possible to have a card that's too fast for the camera to handle. Once the card is faster than the camera, the camera speed becomes the bottleneck and you'll have hit peak performance no matter the card speed. You can't go wrong buying the fastest cards. Your next camera may be faster than your current one!
