Bring on the cards.

The cards are here. The fedex truck drove away a few minutes ago. I blogged about this deal here. The deal is even better than I thought. There is more in the box than just the card. With each 4gig Extreme III card, there is also a card reader, a little pouch that can hold at least two cards (in their tiny cheap plastic cases) and some rescue software. Sandisk also claims to warranty the cards for life. Pretty sweet. Now to see if I get the rebate, which would put the price at $20 apiece.

I also ordered a batery for my D40. I am going to try the Adorama branded one. Hopefully it will work fine as a backup. Not sure how to test it short of just holding the trigger and counting shutter clicks vs doing the same with the Nikon version.
