    Hoodman RAW SDHC cards in the M8?

    i was just at adorama and the salesman suggested i get the Hoodman RAW 8gb SDHC card over the 8gb Sandisk Extreme III SDHC. i bought 1 of each (the hoodman came with a sdhc reader which i needed)

    does anyone have any experience with the hoodman?

    I bought a couple of Hoodman 2GB CF cards a year or so ago, and am happy with them. But their prices are so high that I can't call it a sensible move. I've been happy with SanDisk cards for less than half the price.

    Oops. My bad. The 8GB CF cards are about $180. I think I'd buy the Hoodman rather than the SanDisk for comparable prices.

    There's a CF card test here: http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/rea...?cid=6007-9392

    I couldn't find a comparable SD test, so maybe the high speeds don't carry over. Sorry; I'm sure someone here will have something to say.
