| download, which doesn't sound like much, but if you have 100 pics or more it
| is a substantial amount of time. Has anyone had a similar experience. On
| my Kodak 5MP camera, the 5MP pics scream in at less than a second.
| 2. I have other lenses from previous Canon Film Cameras that I was hoping
| to use. One in particular is a Tamron 28-200. It mounts fine, and seems to
| function correctly (auto focus etc.), however when I take pics that look in
| focus in the viewfinder (w/ or w/o using autofocus) they are all ever so
| slightly out of focus? Very frustrating, any thoughts?
To answer Q1:
Get a USB v2.0 CF Card Reader. Then you will be able to save battery power and get the max.
speed of the CF card when copying files from the card.
BTW: I think you mean a 1GB Lexar 80x CF card ;-)
