I just took the advice and bought a 256Mb CF card from Crucial - not
that much more than the alternatives, and Crucial has always given me
great service in the past. Let that be a lesson to Dabs et al.


(I was going to get a 512Mb card, but the price/byte is the same, and
when travelling it is often better to have multiple smaller cards so
if the camera is nicked you don't lose all your photos)
