Huge capacity!

Even though more expensive than two 8GB cards, I choose the 16GB card because they are UDMA enabled. I just bought a Canon 5D and wanted to be able to use it's HD video feature without changing cards every few minutes and because of the faster speeds from the UDMA. I don't do a lot of action shooting, but it is nice to not have to worry about write times as I shoot. This was not an issue with my old Canon 20D, but it is with the 5D which writes 21MB files in raw mode. I bought 2 cards because...

I bought 2 cards because of the rebates, and so far, performance wise, I have not been disappointed. These cards are extremely fast!

My first Exteme IV

By

from New York, NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Been using Sandisk Extreme for years, it has been serving me great. I been using 16Gb alwasy as I shoot & record a lot. I always carry 3 of them on me. For some 16gb might not be the best idea since IF ANY thing happend to it, it'll be a nightmare. Since purchasing this IV, it's not much faster than III but I'm a sucker for marketing.

Hefty capacity

By

from Tucson, AZ  -  Semi Pro

I had been using 8gig CF cards, waiting for prices to come down on some of the higher capacities. Adorama threw in the 16gig with my purchase of EOD 5D Mark II, so I was happy to put it to work. As with the 8s, I find I have to be cautious when inserting the card in the camera or a card reader. I wasn't as cautious when first using an 8 (with a straight EOS 5D), and wound up bending the CF pins in the camera. Had to send the camera body back to Canon for fix (still under warranty, thank goodness). Otherwise, this baby holds my normal quantity of RAW and TIFF files admirably.

Perfect for my new DSLR

By

from Cary, NC  -  Getting Started

I was looking for a new card for my new Canon EOS 7D and I have use Sandisk before. They have been very reliable. At that time, there was a big rebate deal from SanDisk. Originally I wanted to get two 8 GB cards but those were quickly sold out every where. But luckily, Adorama had the 16 GB and with the lowest price. I have had it for 2 months now and it performed great. I have not had any issues. Great product and great transaction!
