i didn't realise the A300 took CF cards. I actually would've though that it would be memory stick being sony and all.

The native format is CF. It'll only take the small memory sticks with a CF adapter so I'd consider that rather pointless unless you have the memory sticks already.

In my A350 I've used Sandisk Extreme III and IV. Can't say I notice a speed difference between them in the camera.

how many fps does that DSLR shoot at? You'd be hard pressed to notice a difference unless we're talking 5fps and up, in which case the buffer would empty faster.

Unless we're talking transferring images to the pc, in which case if you had a firewire 800 cf reader, the IV would transfer faster.

The A300 goes up to 3fps, which is fine with jpegs but the buffer fills rapidly in raw.
