Great card for photography

When I bought my first pro level dslr the only cf cards the store carried were 100mb cards that cost 5 times as much. Once while traveling on a photo expedition I needed another card and the only ones the store carried were 16mb cards (for about the same price as these). I have also used several SanDisk Ultra cards in the past. So I have experience with three different speed levels in my pro dslr. The difference bewteen the 16mb and these cards is clearly evident.

When I bought my first pro level dslr the only cf cards the store carried were 100mb cards that cost 5 times as much. Once while traveling on a photo expedition I needed another card and the only ones the store carried were 16mb cards (for about the same price as these). I have also used several SanDisk Ultra cards in the past. So I have experience with three different speed levels in my pro dslr. The difference bewteen the 16mb and these cards is clearly evident. But the difference between the 100mb cards and these cards is undetectable. For the pro dslr I use, it appears that the 30mb transfer rate is about as fast as the camera can handle. Maybe if your use is video you'll need the super fast cards, but it's my experience that for dslr's these cards work as good as those that cost 5 times as much. I have also never lost an image stored in my SanDisk cards, but I have with other cards, so they are also very stable. As fast as a pro dslr can handle, low cost and 100% reliable. You can't do any better

Corrupt after the first shoot

I purchased two of these cards and THANK GOODNESS I did. I told myself while purchasing it "hey I should get two just incase ones craps out" surely enough one did. It lasted for only ONE shoot (600+ images were taken on it). Thankfully I moved all the images on it onto my computer before it stopped working. After the transfer, my camera (D700) and the card reader wouldn't read it. When I put it into the camera it displays CHR. I plan on getting another card. Maybe this one was just a lemon. ...

Adorama doesn't refund memory cards. :/ When it did work it was fine. The other card works fine. Just beware and get two if you're considering buying these.

Failed to download images

By

from Roswell, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I buy only SanDisk memory cards for their reliability. This is the first time I've run into an instance where I couldn't download images from the card. SanDisk is replacing it but makes me skeptical about the other 2 cards I purchased with this one.

I test this one and the SanDisk 16GB Extreme Compact Flash Memory Card60MB/s .In two Nikon d2xs side by side and the less 30 MB/s is faster. Save the $$$ and go with this one .I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it over 60MB/s in nikon D2x cameras.I have been using SanDisk cards for many years.

SanDisk cards are dependable.

By

from Atlanta, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I felt I needed a few extra high capacity cards for an upcoming trip. I usually download images to a pc, to a portable hard drive and a usb flash drive. This trip I'm going to try and not reformat the cards so that I'll have yet another backup.

Great product!

SanDisk memory cards were recommended to me by my brother years ago. I have never had a problem with one, and I have several. My first 16GB card was bought when I purchased my Canon 7D in order to have space to record video. I wanted another to have plenty of memory for trips I plan to take.

I have never used any other brand than SanDisk when buying a compact flash card. My brother gave me good advice when I asked what brand to buy years ago! There have been no problems, so I stay with what I know works. I bought my first 16GB card when I purchased my Canon 7D to have more space for video recording. For me, it is just what I need.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
RYAN R  It was reliable technology that offered great value for money. I try to buy a generation behind the leading edge.
Louis Z  Is this compact flash compatible with Nikon D-200 DSLR?
ED W  I bought this card for my Nikon D700 and it works well in it, I have also used it in my D300s. I don't know about the D200 if it has limitations on size, go to Nikon's site for approved cards at the time of manufacture. https:// support . nikonusa . com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13795/~/approved-cf-cards---d200I hope this helps. remove the spaces in the address and copy and paste into your browser. Happy shooting.....Ed W.
Shopper  Can memory card be used with macbook?
JERRY H  Does the macbook use a CF card or an SD card? Most laptops that I have seen have integrated SD cards, so I don't really know... this is a CF card. If your macbook uses a CF card, I see no reason why it could not work.
