Re: preferred card for D300

The recommendations in the back of the manual really aren't much of a help. They date back to 2007, I believe, and don't reflect the current marketplace.

I've used Lexar, Sandisk and Transcend cards with no problem. Last year I saw a sale on 32-GB Sandisk cards with a pretty high speed and bought two, instantly doubling my card capacity (I'd slowly built up a group of eight 8-GB cards from several brands).

Think of how much capacity you need on a card and want to risk in the remote possibility of card failure - or losing a card. Watch for sales.

And don't worry about trying to find "the best" as that's something that people will differ on.
