4GB Compact Flash Card - £21.94 including delivery

Hi all,

I've been lurking for a while and thought I would contribute a deal to your great forum.

This CF card is not fast or a well known make, but 4GB for £22 is quite good - I will use one as back-up for my holiday snaps and stuff!

Sorry I don't know how to get a picture and I apologise if the deal comes up a bit wrong!

Thanks guys!

I noticed the stock has gone to LOW already, they obviously don't have many!
#6
Your very first post made it to the front page :lol: Well done!
#7
This would be a great deal... if I had any compactflash devices :(

Good find...

Blimey 4GB though. You'd have to go some to get 4GB of data on it and i'm not sure if i'd trust flash memory storing that amount of data. For photos 512MB is more then enough storage in between uploading it to a PC.

someone told me that some of these are slow sometimes, what's this one like, I know nothing about what to look for in teh specs?

That can be true. If you use a slow flash card in a camera for example, the read write times will be poor, so the camera might be slower to recycle in between shots and may be slower viewing taken photos.

I was trying to find out how fast this card was and the following website seems to have the stats for it

http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-6451_7-6296352-2.html

(looks to be a 10X speed)

hope this helps

Good price but if you need a 4Gb card, chances are you've got a professional DSLR which produces big files and in which case you'd want something quite fast to be up to the job.
#13
I've got a fast (x133) 4gb card and a cheap 2gb card as backup but to be honest I don't notice any difference in speed as my camera (nikon d200) has a sizable memory buffer; there was a noticable difference when I had a d70 though so I guess the issue is where do you spend your money, on the camera body or the memory card?
#14
Thanks, great price.
voted hot :)
#15
If on limited budget and capacity the top priority, can't go far wrong with this.
#16
Ack for £22 notes you can't fault that, these are selling in the states for anything from $75 - $319.

I have had a look about and the general concensus is that the write speed is about 12mbps which is equivalent to USB 1.1. so should be ok.

I have ordered one :thumbsup:

Nice find

If you're looking for reviews of the Viking card, don't forget to look at the description closely, i.e.

You are probably right in most case, but I regularly shoot 3GB or more in a day. Personally I use Sandisk 1GB or 2GB as I would hate to think what could happen if one of these 4GB cards goes AWOL or kapunkt during an important job.

Must say though that the price is incredible.

The first cf card I bought was a 64mb one and that cost £50! My maths isn't great but it would be fun to work out how much one of these 4GB cards equated to at that £ per mb rate.
#20
78p a meg for your old CF 64MB


Not even worth working out the other its approx 1/2p a MB.

Work on the premise that a penny a meg is 4000p = £40


Of course I can always be corrected :whistling:
#21
Yep, 0.54 pence per mb (2194 / 4096)
#22
Great deal, I was about to buy one of these a couple of weeks ago but decided I didn't really need it right then so I may as well wait since the price will come down.

As for speed, I have a couple of SLRs which are both Olympus - the E-500 and E-330. I started off with two bog standard 1GB cards (Lexar and Viking), then recently picked up a Sandisk Extreme III 1GB card to test the waters to see if these fast cards were as good as everyone says they are. Have to say I'm disappointed, I can't notice any speed difference so I'll be picking up this 4GB card - I can always have the Sandisk Extreme card handy if I need all the speed I can get.

I've been pretty luck with my CF cards, I also have a few older smaller ones but never had any problems - the only times they've not worked properly is when I've been using them in different cameras without formatting them, it's understandable there can be issues then. So having all my eggs in one basket so to speak with a 4GB card isn't a problem for me although maybe that will change ;)

Unless your using £2000 worth of D-SLR you probably won't notice a difference due to the amount of quick succession shots your camera is able to buffer anyway.

For example if you have a Canon 350d I think the frame rate on that is 3per second, where as a Canon 5d ir 1dMKII is at least double therefore needing the faster cards to clear the buffer.

Especially if you are shooting in RAW format with no compression.

So I believe anyways ;-)

Will let you know for future reference when I get mine delivered, I am hoping to use mine with a Canon 350d
#24
Thanks for the pointers and Welcome to HotUKDeals new members here too :)

For a dSLR you really do need a fast card (+ 100x) especially when shooting in continous mode

Also when retrieving your photos to your computer, it can take forever on a slow card to transfer 4GB!
#26
Just for info, I own a Canon 350D which is rated at 3 frames per sec, producing JPEG files you won’t notice any appreciable slowing until you take around 35-40 shots !!!

When Shooting RAW you will notice it will slow after a shorter number of shots (perhaps 5shots) when compared to a £100 / £150 4gb CF card.

This card is the basic and slowest of what’s around but it ain’t bad value!

I agree with some earlier posts that the transfer rate to the PC will be slower – but hey if it takes all day to take 1000 JPEG’s pictures on this card you won’t mind waiting a little longer to download them!
