    Hello group.

    Any recommendations on fast 2GB Compact Flash memory cards? I will be
    shooting with a 20D and quite often fast shots, so want to minimise the
    buffer time.

    Lexar 80X? Sandisk Ultra II?

    I own both and although the Lexar, on paper at least, appears to be
    faster, in practice you'll notice little difference. Point to note
    though - if you take long exposure's, it will take quite a time to
    process the shot onto the card.

    The Sandisk Ultra II 2GB card works great in the 20D. I almost bought
    the Lexar 80x but found the Sandisk to be less expensive. Both cards
    write faster than the 20D (card=12MB/sec, 20D=6.5MB/sec) so you will
    likely not notice any difference at all.

    eCost.com has great prices on Sandisk Ultra II cards

    Cheers!
