I bought the card but and 8GB and a 2 GB Sandisk IV but so far I'm just learning how to use the camera. The real test comes in 9 days when I go to Hawaii. I bought the firewire card reader before I realized that my laptop has the 4 pin variety instead of the 6 pin type. I bought a card for my laptop with the right connectors before I realized that the do not supply power to the reader (as required). Short answer, unless your PC or laptop have a builtin firewire reader I would not buy one. I could plug in an AC adapter to power the reader but I can't find one. I have been using an old USB reader that I already had. I guess I'll hate that when I have to transfer 8 GB worth of pictures when I get back.
