Oh brother indeed. First you try to weasel your way out of
admitting that you misread the OP, and thought it was a request for
products rather than user's experiences with the adapters. Now
you're hitting your stride, anger building, and if past history is a
guide, insults and nastiness may soon follow. The products are NOT
as simple as you think, and I doubt that you know or are willing to
guarantee which adapters can deal with SD cards greater than 2GB and
whether any of them will work with SDHC cards.

As opposed to responses to Usenet postings?

Given the low cost of memory cards I prefer to chose my camera on
photographic performance and not risk compromising the principle (sole)
function in order to save a few pounds.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.

I have one with the Minolta brand, but I've seen others advertised.
Yes, it works. Mine has the SD card inserted on the side, so it is
necessary to remove the adapter to remove the SD card. I've used it
both with a Canon Rebel 300D and a Sony Alpha 100, and 1 GB SD cards.
One problem you will face is with SD cards greater than 2 GB. I think
that is the limit of the currently defined standard, so there is no
guarantee larger SD cards will work with the old adapter, even though
larger CF cards are now available. (If you try a larger currently
available SD card, it may work with the adapter in a CF camera, but may
not work in an SD camera!)
