Summary: I got this card to give a second life to the original Canon EOS Rebel (1st generation). Shooting RAW images is no longer an issue. The saving time was cut down quite significantly. So there's much less of a delay.
Pros: 8GB CF @ ~20mb/sec was well above $100 not all that long ago!
Summary: It is really easy to get caught up in the speed hype. For 90% of us, these cards wil be a GREAT investment, and you can afford to buy several, instead of just one. In over three years of using Kingston cards, I have NEVER had one fail. I trust it with all of my work.
Pros: Low price great warranty (lifetime) Great speed for general use (see other thoughts)
Cons: Not intended for high speed shooting, it WILL slow you down. If you are a sports shooter, get a 300x UDMA or faster card. but for the casual shooter, portraits, etc, this is a GREAT card!
Summary: I don't understand why there are any bad reviews of this product. Perhaps a little slow for video use but for photos, perfect! Perhaps some people are experiencing slow performance because they are taking their photos off the camera via USB connection, that is slow with any card.
Pros: I've shot 10,000+ photos through this card without a single issue. Its been the one of the most durable and reliable cards I've owned. I've shot in freezing east coast mountain temps to 100F+ desert AZ temps and in high humidity like in the everglades, in rain, and in dry areas like AZ without fu...
Summary: I used this card with Canon 40D with the 1.1.1 firmware, which is the latest. I bought this card in order to increase my capacity on long trips. Tested at home over a weekend, about 300 shots, no problem, not a speed monster but it performed fine.
Summary: I have 3 of these cards. They have been used in Canon 20D, 40D, and now 7D. I just bought the 3rd card to use in the 7D. I am able to save HD video with the 7D to all these cards with no slow up or problem. I rarely shoot in continuous mode, but this card handles my 7D at 8 FPS Raw.
Summary: I have resorted to my old 2gb card and relegated this new card to use as archive storage....If I get up the courage to buy another large memory card(Sandisk) maybe I'll finally get an answer to my delema.
Pros: This card offers great storage capacity and seems to be pretty fast when I took repeated shots while making RAW & JPG images at the same time...
Cons: I found the initial startup on my camera(Maxxum 7D) to be almost 8 seconds !!! Also if the camera was left on and idle for a long time I experience the same long delay when I push the trigger to take a photo. Not a good thing!! I don't know if it's the memory card size thats the issue or that my ...
