Arnaud, even your rates are only half of what they could be. Using the supplied ILink attachment (powered by a Sony Series L battery) to the CF recorder and a Firewire cable, my full Transcend 32GB card transfers to my PC in 18 minutes. By the time we're talking about these speeds, I wonder if the discrepancies would above remain the same. Either way, MUCH faster than real-time capturing!

so long as you can edit with m2t files - in my case Edius takes real time to subsequently convert to Canopus HQ so total time is longer :(. Still, I can transfer quickly after a wedding and then leave the PC running overnight to do the conversion.

Where have people found the best place to get the 32gb Transcend cards from? They don't seem to be widely available here in Australia yet and I don't want to end up with fake ones like I did with a Sandisk 4gb card a year ago which was meant to be express 4 but was much slower.

I use 16gb trancend cars as they give 73 mins and match the HDV tape size of 63 mins with a bit extra for safety.

I get them on e-bay for around 55 GBP

Hi Matt, I'm in New Zealand and after WEEKS of searching, have found 1 online US place selling them for a reasonable price, AND reasonable international USPS shipping... I ordered today for US$156 + US$13.50 postage. Delivery is a couple of weeks so hold fire and I'll report if the goods arrive safely and work as expected....

Hi John,

Thanks. They look like a good site. I have been looking for AGES as well. I have ordered 2 32gb cards, and needed them rather urgently, and didn't want to risk the slow shipping so I ordered via fedex. So I should have by Monday. Fingers crossed they work! Otherwise I can always use them in my SLRs. Much cheaper than prices locally.

Thanks,
Matt

Well my two cards arrived today and seem to be working fine! Very fast shipping and good communication also helped. Now to really test them out when I take the camera to Africa for 5 weeks. (Leave in 3 weeks!)

Traxdata 32GB 233x performance

Hi there,
Today I tested these CF-cards which I bought for €78 (that would be a little above $100 ???) with the Flash memory toolkit.

Quite nice theoretical results considering the price:
Write is between 1.5x and 2x the speed of the Transcend 133x
Read is between 3x and 4x the speed of the Transcend 133x

Practical results:
2 hours of m2t files (about 23 GB) took almost 18 minutes to transfer to my laptop using a usb card reader
with the unit (MRC1k) attached to the laptop via firewire it took 15 minutes
