    Where do you buy your decent compact flash cards?

    In nearly a year the 1gb lexar 80x card I bought at dabs has dropped just £7. The price of cameras has plummeted by comparison. Any recommendations for places for fast 1Gb such at the lexar or other decent make?

    I guess demand is keeping the prices high.

    cheers

    I looked on this site while trawling the web for the cheapest 2GB Extreme III a few months ago when I bought mine. Cheapest anywhere at the time was amazon @ £150.

    That is a MAD reduction!!
