    hey guys/gals, I need to get about 6-8 CF cards, 4gig, at least 133x sandisk or transcend or lexar or something brand named. Just looking to see who is repeatable and has the best buys.


    Cheers,


    Jon

    Try Newegg.com
    Very good pricing, selection, and the best customer service this side of B&H.

    I just checked B&H and they had the Lexar 4GB(300X UDMA) for $78, but with a $55/per card rebate on 3 max that brings the cost down to $23/per for $69 for 3. The Lexar 4GB(133x) is listed as discontinued. Being a member of NAPP, I go to B&H through the NAPP site and don't have to pay shipping. Just one of the NAPP perks.

    I love NewEgg, but their pricing for shipping makes purchase of multiple items a bit less attractive, since they charge shipping on a per item basis. (Like 5 bucks to ship *each* printer cartridge...)

    Beach Camera or Buydig (I believe they are the same company). Great prices and free shipping on memory cards.

    Guys -
    be sure to check out your local Costco or Sams Club too.

    Also, here's a tip, as you start using more cards. In my first job out of college shooting video for a small CBS affiliate, I used this method for the camera batteries. It works even better for memory cards. Get a label maker, one of those little ones for file folders - or even, just a black marker. Label your cards 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C, etc. Always start with A. Then use B. If you are using B, then you know that A is full. I know photographers with 8 and 10 cards, and trying to figure out which card is used, which is not, during a shoot, can be nuts. Instead, if card 7 or 8 is in your camera, you know that 1 through 6 are full.
    Hope that make sense! :) 
     
  13. Ditto on the NewEgg comments.
