yeah yeah, I have more questions. I'm almost done though, I promise! DH surprised me by buying me the Xti today He neglected to buy the warranty when he purchased it from Circuit City. That brings me to my first question...are there any places you can buy warranties from independantly? 2nd question...he bought me 2 CF cards. One is Sandisk (Extreme III) and one is Lexar (Professional). Both are 4 gig....I have always used Sandisk, and with the recovery software that is included with the cards I would prefer to stick to only installing one..I don't want to install both. Is one better than the other? DH seems to be of the opinion that Lexar is better than Sandisk...your opinions? I can't wait to try my new toy out tomorrow at our nephew's soccer game!! TIA!
