I have an Ice Hockey photoshoot on Saturday and my lovely little kids have decided to lose my 512 mb compact flash card..... I have a 1gb card as well but without my 512 mb card im going to lose 167 photo's. I struggle with 1.5 gb already so to be down to only 1 gb is going to be a nightmare.... Im hoping it turns up as it has to be in my house somewhere. But after 3 hrs looking its still missing.

Hence my quastion....

Can anyone confirm any "cheap 24 hr delivery CF card" links. I normaly use 7dayshop (512 gb card £29.99) but there delivery is normaly 3 days due to them being in Guernsey.. Which is to late  Sad

All help most welcome !!!

Desperate time call for desparate measures... you could always try Dixons / Currys / PC World. I know, it really grates having to give money to these lackwits but like I say, desparate times mate!  Sad

Simon

I was going to e-mail you then saw Manzoori's post and I'd have to agree with him. I don't think you can get anything that fast from a supplier and if you did it may cost you as much when the Rapid Postage is added.

Yeah but i realy hate having to pay these (bs) prices in Dixons/PC World etc etc for a 512 mb card. When i could get a 1 Gb for the same price from 7dayshop.  Sad

I was just fishing in hope that i would not have to take that option and some nice person would know another cheap quick UK site !!  Sad

Might sound daft, but they are everywhere now and I saw some in Asda the other day and I think they were cheaper than Dixons.

I thought i would try a few of the internet sites for Food/superstores. Asda i could not find anything. But Tesco's want £105.00 for a 512 mb CF card....

I could not stop laughing. I could get 2 gb worth of cards for that from 7Dayshop..... This country realy is rip off city !!!!!!

No its not Simon!!!

Try Ireland, the lenses I bought are double the price to NY and 40% more than the UK. Trust me!
But that doesn't mean that you have to pay over the odds for it either. I wish I could help you out but sorry mate. Good luck and keep us posted. Like to know if you find a cheap and fast delivery place.

Warehouseexpress.com ..... £49.99 for a 512mb Sandisk CF Ultra II. If you order before 4PM they usually deliver next day special delivery or Citylink.

Infact no. I was telling someone the story and how i was having to order a new card and they told me ###### has a point and click that uses CF cards and it would be worth giving him a call... I called him and he saved the day with the loan of a 256 mb card....... It was just about enough and the photo shoot went fine  Big thumbs up

And no my lost card has still not surfaced  Sad So im just going about ordering a new 1 gb card. That will give me a total of 2 gb. Then 2 spare 256 cards.

Cheers for asking  Smile

Hi Simon,

It probably depends on the type of memory you want to buy. I use Lexar Pro 80x and my latest one a 1Gb I bought through eBay in December for about £65. (£50 now). Mine came from NY with no problems in just over a week.

Alternatively Crucial memory is pretty good value 1Gb £50
http://www.crucial.com/uk/index.asp

or Fotosense seem pretty reasonable for faster writing flash
1GB Sandisk ULTRA II Flash £70
1.0GB Lexar Pro 80x Compact Flash £73

http://www.fotosense.co.uk

Regards
Martin

ps I hope the 300mm is okay

At the last minute no one has mentioned Jessops.

Prices are steep, but use the price match policy and you can get them vastly reduced. So I hear  Smile you can get a 1GB Lexar 80x at Jessops for the £72.90 picstop has them for as long as you take a printout of the price and they have them in stock.
