I need to pick up some memory cards for a gig with my 5D. I'm having a hard time finding the Extreme III CF cards.

Has anyone used the Extreme Pros: http://www.bhphotovi....pactFlash.html

I've used Kingston but have seen some buffer warnings. I'll be shooting long form interviews and need the most reliable media possible.

Thanks,

Bill

Sandisk is a manufacturer, Kingston is a sales and marketing operation. Kingston has no way of directly monitoring production quality.

One batch of Kingston cards sold through their regular distribution channel turned out to be defective chips stolen from the plant that was making them for Kingston, packaged in a midnight run at a different chip manufacturer's plant, and then infiltrated into Kingston distribution. It took three different criminals in China cooperating to do that.

Of course, there's always the run of the mill eBay counterfeits to worry about.
