make sure they're the new 30m/b's ones before ordering. I got 2 a couple of weeks back from play and they were the older ones so I sent them back. Got 2 from picstop instead which were 17.99 at the time and they were the new 30m/b's cards

The webpage itself actually says they are the 20mb versions, but I've ordered one anyway - always found them plenty fast for my 400D.

Check out www.robgalbraith.com/bins/multi_page.asp?cid=6007 to see how compact flash and SD cards perform on your camera.

On my D300 the Sandisk 4Gb Extreme III 30 Mb/Sec has a RAW write speed of 22.1 Mb/sec and the Extreme IV (which costs twice a much) has a RAW write performance of 25.71 Mb/Sec - so the Extreme III is only 14% slower.

The Sandisk 4Gb 30Mb/Sec Extreme III is definitely the best value for money performance card.

Great card, I got one of these from dvd.co.uk a couple of weeks back come to about £19.99 including postage had an older 2gb Sandisk extreme 3 anyway but thought with me shooting raw and also bracketing the extra 2GB capacity would come in handy as well as the quicker write speed.

Hi all

Can I ask how you can tell they're the new 30Mb/s version? The specs say 'minimum 20Mb/s' but no mention of 30Mb/s...

(Btw, I ordered a 4Gb SDHC Extreme III from Play.com yesterday)

Cheers
