    Delkin Devices may still market a SD to CF card adapter. By using the
    Delkin card adapter you can use your SD cards in your D300 camera. I use
    the adapter in my D300 and keep a couple of extras handy. For those who
    may be interested, the Delkin card adapter will not fit into the card
    slot of the D700.

    Not to forget Fujifilm E900 which in collaboration with Olympus gave us
    the almost unattainable xD cards. Fortunately they have come to their
    senses and dropped them for SDHC.[/QUOTE]

    at least it has cf too.

    : Rockwell can be an ass, and many times wrong. The D90 is a very good
    : camera for 2007, but the D300/D300S is far superior in many ways and
    : should be available used at reasonable prices.

    But pay close attention to the click count, if that's readily available on
    that model. (It isn't on most Canons, for example.) The D300 was a more
    "serious" camera and is more likely to have been owned by a professional or
    semi-professional. While he (or she) is likely to have taken better care of
    the camera, he's also likely to have used up a greater percentage of its
    useful life.

    true, but sometimes you might find someone who bought a d300 or similar
    high end camera, only to find out it's more than they needed, which is
    why they're selling it, so therefore there aren't a lot of shutter
    actuations on it.
