Guys, i just got my Canon 400D and then realised that its using CF memory. (always thought it uses SD because my Canon IXUS does)

Anyway, any one where to buy CF card? Online shops or actual shop around sydney?? Prefer the later option as i can't wait to start playing around with the camera. Also, any particular brand i should go for?

Thanks

oh! i saw that before. From the specs, the ridata CF looks pretty impressive. I will look into it.

id only use sandisk or lexar memory,
ultra II or extreme,

d-d-photographics.com.au has decent memory prices.

Another vote for Sandisk Ultra and extreme series of memory card. When I got my ultra II SD card it made a massive difference in the save time of my camera. Be careful when purchasing from ebay as there are A LOT of fake memory cards, so to be safe ask the seller for a serial/product number and then double check it with the manufacturer and they'll be able to tell you if it's a fake or not.

Another place that has some pretty good prices is www.anythingonline.com.au.

if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

the copies have what looks like proper packaging too.
