    Just seen this offer on Picstop.

    Seems good to me, just thought I'd give a heads up.

    Picstop are very good for cf cards. They are sent from the channel islands so there is no tax on them. very good service and great value for money. james

    Cheers Trev, That is a seriously good deal, And Kingston is a seriously good brand.......Too....! Looking at the read/write figures these are almost the same spec as Sandisk's Extreme III, Close enough for the price......Smile

    That said if you want to get a copy of Sandisk's " Rescue Pro " software ( for image or file retrieval from corrupted cards/hard drives ) I can confirm that you get a copy with a purchase of the 4Gb Sandisk Extreme III cards......!

    It's one of those small CD's........Smile The software is the latest version 3.3, And from tests on cards & HDD's is very good.

    That said you might want to shop around for Sandisk Extreme cards, Price wise......Smile

    7dayshop.com have this same twinpack at 14.99. Also for 17.49 they offer the 8GB Kingston Elite Pro 133x, or for 13.99 the 8GB Transcend Ultra Speed 133X. I've used the cheaper CF brands from 7dayshop.com with my 5D for years now with no problems.

    Maybe I've just been lucky.

    One thing about 7dayshop.... I recently bought a couple of 2gb Kingston CF cards from them and they arrived without the proper packaging and no leaflet.

    I emailed their customer service to find out why and got no reply.

    Seem to work OK and they look genuine, but you wonder?

    Hi Sam

    They sometimes split multipacks (they do that with inks too) so you end up with the item and no 'official' packaging.

    To be honest, I am not sure they are supposed to do that as manufacturers usually stipulate that multipacks must be sold like that.

    I would suggest that they are likely to be genuine

    Ahh, that explains it. I checked on the internet for sites that tell you how to identify if they're genuine or not and it all looked OK to me...

    ... but I'm dissapointed that their customer service didn't answer.

    Cheers
