Compact Flash Memory Card Prices at Comex 2008

Some one posted the CF card prices at Comex 2008. The prices are really good.

SanDisk Ultra II:
2GB S$29
4GB S$39
8GB S$68

SanDisk Extreme III:
4GB S$56
8GB S$90
16GB S$170

Kingston Elite Pro:
4GB S$29
8GB S$51
16GB S$118

Kingston Ultimate:
2GB S$43
4GB S$76
8GB S$135

The SD cards are even cheaper. Kingston 2GB SD card is only S$9.00! 4GB going for S$18.00.

With such great prices, there will be less storage woes from the photographers, but more on the photo-editing part.

Consider a 1GB card on a Canon EOS 20D can store around 200 photos at the max resolution in Jpeg format, a 4GB card then can store 800 photos. How long do you think it will take to process 800 photos.

If you are shooting raw, 4GB can still hold quite a substantial number of photos. The effort needed is not to be sneezed at, either.
