    Hi All,

    My new camera doesn't use CF cards and I've got about 3-4 spare here. (One not even opened out of it's packaging.)

    Anyone ever sold any cards on eBay? What sort of prices do you get from them, I'm guessing not very much but just wondering if it's worth the effort and if I'll get enough to buy 1-2 SD cards with it?

    The A230 in the end. Not an ideal situation but :/ works out better than a refund as I got mine so cheap that I wouldn't be able to afford a new SLR.

    At least its sorted now. Like I said yesterday, the 18-55mm lens is a lot nicer than the 18-70, hopefully you won't miss the extra focal length too much.

    Are the CF cards branded (Sandisk, Kingston etc) and what size. I would think you would be able to sell them for a reasonable price on Ebay if they are branded and a decent size (4Gb or so). I doubt you would get much for them though as memory is so cheap these days.

    I was looking at 8Gb Sandisk 30Mb/sec cards for 31.00 earlier!!!

    I think there are 3 4gb ones and 1 2gb one, I'd have to have a look Mick.

    Dad has told me to phone the customer services department as I'm not happy with the service I received. I was glad to get a new camera but it just seems to be one thing after another that doesn't match the spec of my old camera/lens!

    The lens quality feels terrible The pictures are nice through it but it won't last five minutes.

    I phoned customer services/head office who said that they don't usually do a refund but in this circumstance than they would. I'd be worse off with a refund so I'm just going to keep this one

    There is;

    1 x 4gb SanDisk Ultra II
    2x 4gb Intergral (http://www.integralmemory.com/produc...g.aspx?prid=54)

    1x 2gb Fujifilm 40X

    Finger slipped & posted before I'd written the rest! Look at that post again now lol
    If I get it exchanged for a better model then they said they'd meet me half way on the price but I still can't afford to- the next one up is 200+ dearer.
