i just ordered the camera.. found it at a great price..

i'm looking for some compact flash cards for it. thinking 1gb or 2gb cards. taking a trip to Colombia next month. of course will be taking tons of pictures. i'm planing on using the above midrange to high range resolutions on it. looking for average file size?

At full-res you are looking at around 2.5-4.5 megs for JPEG per shot... In RAW you are looking at 6.5-9mb per shot.

You'd be amazed how quick a 1 gb card fills up shooting RAW.

i think you should be able to do burst mode with jpeg as well.

my advice is to pick up more smaller cards than bigger ones. if one happens to get corrupted you may lose 2gb of pictres instead of just 512mb. just my .02

i'm thinking of the 1gb cards.. but i will for sure take that into consideration.. that's why i'm not getting the 2gb or 4gb cards.
will for sure do the files in jpeg

newegg has a 1gb card for $31.99

If you are sticking with JPEG than 1gig will be fine... If you ever consider going RAW then 1gig is really a bare minimum. I burn through 1gigs like water... and my 2gigs barely get me by.

The main thing is that if you buy the larger chips you want to get the nicer cards (extreme III or equivalent) ... Those chips can take far more abuse than the cheaper ones so you don't have to worry about corruption as much. Plus they import nearly twice as fast in a chip reader which is quite nice. Of course they do cost considerably more... But you get what you pay for.

Extreme III is Sandisk... which is what I primarily use.

The Ultra II is fine for most applications...

Here is the extreme III just in case:

I have used Adorama for over $3k gear purchases over the last year and they have always been great.
