Hi,

soon will purchase Nikon D300 with battery grip. Also, wish to buy 8 GB compact flash memory card but there is many diferences in price. From $70 to $350.  I was see that biger difference is in speed of writing and reading data from card.

What type of card is optimal? Usualy on some shooting I using 5-10 images in rapid fire... ahhah

Regards,
BA

I use a Sandisk 8GB Extreme IV in my D200, I have found it to be reliable and fast. If you are taking 5 - 10 in rapid succession its worth getting the fastest card available

The card speed also determines the transfer rate when using a card reader (bit not so much if you download from the camera)

I have no problem whit my Extreme III (whit D300) at 6fps. I can shoot easely up to 5 or 6 second before the burst slow down. That's enough time to let you loose your subject in the dust :)
