About as cheap as they come...You can pick a 128mb up without paying VAT.

FujiFilm XD cards are quiter pricey as they have extra 'software' coded into them which opens up extra funcionality on some Fujifilm cameras. (mostly slideshows i believe)

And of course they're the smallest memory card availiable...

byfodr you can't avoid the VAT any longer above about £17. They have obviously been squeezed by HM C&E presumanbly on the basis that personal imports the receiver is liable to pay VAT.

Modo the VAT cut off is £18 so byfodor's link is VAT free as confirmed by the site

Where on earth did they get their price information from? Quoted as £64.99 which is expensive compared to £51.90 at picstop BUT they quote pricing as follows:-

Fuji XD Picture Card - 512Mb
The price shown INCLUDES UK VAT.
UK RRP £289.99 - Your Saving £225.00

I have a Fuji camera which unsuprisingly uses the XD card, but also has a slot for a micro drive. This slot works fine with a compact flash card which are much cheaper than XD. The only XD card I have is the 16 MB supplied with the camera........generous to a fault!

Thanks to all for the recommendations.

Savings look considerable.
