You will love Horseshoe :)

Thanks Felix, I was a bit put off Kingston, as the first and only one I have ever bought failed on me whilst in Sri Lanka.

I have gone with the Sandisk Extreme Pro and, hopefully, I won't regret it.

Besides the many Sandisk, I have had good luck with Transcend CF cards.

there are a lot of counterfeit cards on the market, especially Sandisk. Buy from a reputable supplier. There is a site detailing the differences in the counterfeit to genuine.

Horshoe bend I had to crawl to the edge very slowly. Not a fan of heights.

Edit to link one site showing differences- http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/Fake_Memory_Cards

This link estimates 1/3 of Sandisk cards are fake. Scary. Sandisk are great as are Kingston and Transend. I wonder how many card problems are the result of fake cards. I have had one and the files at times were corrupt. I threw it away.

Thanks Mark, I bought from Amazon so I think they are OK :)

Regarding Horseshoe bend, I am prepared for some crawling!
