looking at getting a couple more cards now i'm shooting in RAW permanently. What is the difference between the 266x and 133x and will i really notice the difference. Any recommendations? i was thinking of either a couple of 2 or 4gb.

purely speed! Whether you'll notice the difference will depend on your cameras ability/need to write to the cards that quickly and then perhaps an increase in speed of transferring the photos back to the computer.

Without going to check the specifics of the camera a good rule of thumb would be faster is nice to have as long as it's in return for a VERY small increase in price

i think i'm going to go middle of the road. My kingston is allegedly 3 times faster than my sandisk and tbh i have noticed no difference. Going to get a 8gb for 18.34 inc postage ( kingston 133 speed)

thanks Keith:thumbsup:
