20D & CF speed, Why get a 'fast' CF card??
Oct 10, 2004

I am confused about CF speed and the 20D.

My main question is: Why get a faster CF card?

Will I be able to take 5fps for 24 frames of JPEG with the slower cards, such as the Sandisk 'regular' (the one that sells for about $60-80 right now). Is the 5fps for 24 frames of JPEG capacity simply the internal buffer for the camara, and no matter how slow the CF card is, all 24 JPEGS will eventually get loaded on the card?

I can't image shooting faster than this. It makes me think that a 'slow' CF card would be plenty for my needs if this is the case.

Any thoughts?
