Great value

I've used the 4GB Sandisk Extreme for 10 years and have been satisfied with the capture speed but not thrilled with the download speed when saving my photos. I jumped at the chance to increase my storage space by a factor of 4 and double my speed. This now allows me to store 500+ images using both my RAW and JPG formats.

quick card failure


from Detroit, MI  -  Professional

I ordered in early February and have used the card for three weddings and a handful of engagement shoots and it has already failed. This is the first card I've ever had fail since 2008.


Excellent speed, bulletproof


from Arnold  -  Semi-Professional

I use this card in a Nikon D810 and occasionally in a Canon 1D MkIV. The Canon 1D MkIV really takes advantage of the card's speed. The card is amazingly fast and the capacity is huge. There are no downsides to this card unless you require more capacity of higher speed.
