SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash is designed for serious professional photographers who demand one of the fastest, most rugged and most durable memory cards on the market. Professional photographers who work under less than ideal conditions expect more from a flash memory card. More speed. More performance. More reliability. SanDisk's Extreme III card delivers everything you want plus a whole lot more.
That's because only SanDisk Extreme III memory cards feature innovative ESP technology for the fastest speeds and highest performance. ESP stands for "Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing". Simply put, it means you are getting the fastest read / write speeds available, speed you'll definitely appreciate whenever you find yourself shooting and storing pictures in harsh environments, extreme temperatures or at high altitudes.
Every SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash card comes with RescuePRO so you can recover images, documents, mail, video, music - just about any digital file, with ease. Built with leading-edge media recovery algorithms, RescuePro lets you preview recoverable data before you try to retrieve it. With RescuePRO's unique recovery algorithm for MPEG audio and MPEG video recovery (MPEG-1/2/3) what you see and what you hear, is what you can recover.

Excellent Card - Terrible Rebate
I agree with the comments about the rebate, but Sandisk sent me a postcard in the male about 8 weeks later tell me that the rebate was invalid. After spending 1 hour on the phone with them, the finally gave me another promo, but with smaller rebate check. Sandisk has horrible rebate customer service. I purchased 3 sandisk products. 3/3 were had problems with the rebate. My wife says if I want to purchase it, assume that no rebate will come - it's icing on the cake if it does.

Good card - Annoying rebate
The card is great, never had a problem with it. The rebate check takes MONTHS to get to you, and then you have to MAIL IT IN to redeem it!!! Forget placing an order online, you have to write a letter describing what you want to order, put the check in the mail, and pray that it does not get lost. Seriously. If you are going to give a rebate, give a rebate already!

I use only SanDisk and count on their reliability and the RescuePro software that came with this card is extremely useful.
This works fine ... everyday use, including movies, it's fast enough.
I am buying 16GB Sandisk Extreme cards now to accommodate the larger file sizes of my CanonD Mark II's. My 4GB & 8GB Sandisk Extreme cards have been (and still are) incredibly reliable, so my hope is the 16GB will continue the tradition.
I needed a larger (and faster) CF card for my Canon 7D. . .filled a 2 GB in minutes (I shoot hi-res jpeg).After reading a couple of reviews, visiting blogs, etc. I chose the SanDisk 16 GB Extreme III CF card.Adorama had the best price (also a $20 rebate).[...] trouble-free CF Card.I've shopped here before and I'll shop here again.
used for video on a canon5D mrk II seemed to read and right fast
Cards were already formatted and ready to go! Started shooting pictures immediately. No problems with multiple frame sequence shots but have not tested the functionality with faster cards. Bought 3 of these cards and all functioned perfectly out of the box.
Excellent Compact Flash with a large capacity and very fast! Nearly 1000 pictures in better quality. Portability is guaranteed!
Terrific capacity for my Canon 7D. Gives you lots of flexibility in storing a whole vacations worth of pictures. Works well in shooting fast action sports at the 8 frames/sec that the 7D is capable of.
I use this card for my 7d, and it works GREAT! The only problem that I run into is that the capacity is small. I use this for both video and photography. If you use your camera for mainly photos, then you are fine. However if you plan on shooting 1080p footage, you may consider paying a little extra for the 32gb card. I am buying a 32gb card here very shortly.
Bought this for my photography-hobbyist dad. He says it's easy to use, reliable and has a lot of storage space.
