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.

The only CompactFlash Card to get!
The SanDisk Extreme III is an excellent CompactFlash memory card. Always reliable in the heat and humidity of location shoots and the 30mb/s R/W cycles is more than adequate for my Nikon cameras...could not be better.

Use with Canon 40D and has always worked well. Don't take a lot of acton shops, so not shooting in large bursts. But, for candids and travel works great and uploads fast. Dependable - haven't had any problems.
These cards are great. I've had them for two years without any problems. Would love it if you could still get the "buy 6 and get $50 back" deal. I wish these weren't discontinued as they have really stood the test of time (and time in digital flies by very quickly).
I don't know if Extreme III is needed over more ordinary cards, but if i recall correctly, Adorama had a special on it, so why not? Maybe if I ever photograph in the Antarctic or other extreme environments, I'll be glad I have it instead of a more wimpy card.
Acquired these toys during a black friday deal couple years ago. Basically 3 for [$] and you got [$] back after mailing the rebate, basically you got them for free. we use them for photos, video, in-fact I was using them last night to shoot a preview. :) There are fast, even faster than some of the newer faster cards out there. Also used them with ML at higher bitrate quality and they survived but not highest quality(60-75Mbps+) for long periods.
Never a problem with these Sandisk Extreme III cards.
Good card. Works as advertised.
I have been using Sandisk since I got my first digital camera in 2004 and I have yet to have one fail.
I have been using 3 of these cards in my Canon 50D for over a year. I have had absolutely no problems with them. I always use SanDisk cards (I also have a 2g CF and an HDSC card for an XSi). I've never had a problem with any of them.
These cards are my absolute favorite. I haven't had any problems with them (knock on wood)... this is and will be my go to brand.
Good capacity storage
