No longer available.

I bought a Mittoni SD-CF adapter that looks identical to this one from Australia. I use it in my Nikon 8700, and it works great with one caveat: It's power hungry, so when your batteries get low, you'll lose the ability to write to your SD card before the camera runs out of power for taking pictures. My best guess is that it stops working with about 1/4 of the battery life remaining.

I've look all over the web for a SD-CF1 adapter and I can't find one or anything comparable. Everyone is saying they're out of stock or out of production. Any of you know where I can get one or have an extra one you'd like to sell me?

What is the benefit of using the SD to CF adapter as against just using a CF card? Are they cheaper or faster than CF cards?
I use a Canon 1D Mark ll which has both a SD and a CF slots. Do I need the adapter?
What does the SD card to CFII do as against the CFI?
As you can see I'm new to digital.
Thanks, Howard

You don't need the adapter, howard. It's only useful if you only want to purchase SD Cards. Or if you have a secondary camera that only read/write SD Cards. Than you can use the same batch of cards with both cameras.

A CFII card will not fit in a CFI slot.
A CFI card will fit in both CFI and CFII slots.
