Kingston is offering $50 rebates on the 4 gig compact flash and lesser amounts off smaller cards. You can get them at BH and at Adorama.

BH linky

After rebate, the Kingston 4GB Elite Pro 45X CompactFlash Memory Card is $19.95 at BH. You can also get the 4GB 133X version, but it's more expensive.

Things to note:
1. You must buy from an authorized photo dealer (BH and Adorama are both on the list)
2. You must send within two weeks of purchase
3. Most places are sold out / on back order (see #4)
4. However, if you can call Kingston (use the FAQ number), and they'll give you a special address and extend the deadline for you as long as you bought it before Jan. 31. The rebate will go to them rather than the processing house.
5. Limit two per household.

After the canon rebate issues, I don't really like rebates, but Kingston seem legit. I actually spoke with Kingston people and questioned them when I called them and not some rebate processing house. And I can't bet $19.95 for a 4 GB compact flash card.

If you have any questions, give Kingston a call.

    Is Kingston a well thought of brand? I have always stuck with Sandisk CF cards.

    I don't know about their flash cards but their PC memory is good.

    Adorama doesn't have them in stock, but will accept orders (https://www.adorama.com/KGCF4GE.html?sid=1168450942696348). Shipping to CA for 2 of 'em was $8.75.

    B&H is out of stock and won't accept an order until they're back in stock. Too bad, because I could have gotten free shipping from B&H (NAPP membership benefit).

    I called B&H first and they said they don't know when they will be getting more. I didn't know if Adorama would recieve them in time for the rebate either....

    Still, 8 gigs of memory for 50 sumthin bucks is a smokin deal!:jose

    I got (automatic?) email back from Adorama saying that the cards were backorder'ed, but that Adorama rarely backorders anything for more than 2 weeks. So hopefully it will go through OK.

    (I noted on the comments section of my order that if it doesn't ship by 1/31 to cancel the order)

    Kingston will still honor the rebates if they arrive after Jan. 31 and if you don't send it in within two weeks due to backorder.

    Call them (check the FAQ on the rebate form for the phone number) after you get the cards. They'll give you another address to mail the forms as long as you bought the compact flash before the Jan. 31 deadline. If they come after two weeks of purchase, or come later due to the bakcorder, etc., they told me not to worry and to just give them a call for the alt. addy. They told me not to mail to the address on the rebate form if I don't meet the rules listed there.

    I called them three times about this rebate, and spoke with a Kingston rep (not rebate clearing house) each time. Give them a call: 800) 835-6575 (Monday - Friday, 6am - 5pm Pacific Standard Time).

    I think most places will be backordered...

    Just ordered two from the site above. $135 is a bit painful right now, but when I get that $100 back, well, let's just say it's a bit more palatable.

    Thanks for the hook up!

    Just want to mention that this is a CF card (so folks don't have to follow the link if they're looking for something else).

    If limited to 2GB, it's a "FAT-16 only" camera
    Snarcher wrote:

    If that's true, that means the D50 only supports the older FAT-16 filesystem. FAT-16 can only address up to 2^31 bytes (2 GB). Don't bother buying cards over 2GB, because the D50 will only be able to read/write the first 2GB on the card :-(.

    That's a little surprising, though, because I thought virtually all 6mp-and-up cameras supported the FAT-32 filesystem now. FAT-32 allows addressing all the data on all current flash cards, and pretty much all foreseeable sizes for years to come.

    I don't know about resellerratings.com, but I have purchased from J & R and haven't had problems. The one problems with places like resellerratings.com is that most of the people who post at those places are people who were unhappy. So it skews the rating towards bad, since 90% of the people who were happy will never post at these rating places.

    Just a thought.
