Summary: I'd love to know exactly which version of the card is being carried by NewEgg. The images used in this listing are contradictory. The image of the CF card is the older 20 MB/s CF card but the picture of the box is the newer 30 MB/s version of the CF card.
Pros: A lot of storage for those taking a lot of photos especially when dealing with RAW.
Cons: SanDisk is being problematic in their marketing of this card. Two versions of the SDCFX3-016G-A31 card exist. One that has a speed of 20 MB/s and a newer one that has speeds of 30 MB/s. Without being able to actually look at the card being purchased this could lead to problems and the fact that t...
Summary: I did comparison of this 8GB card with SanDisk Ultra II 8GB card using Canon 30D. The results show that it is 3.3 seconds and 5.8 seconds for saving continuous 2 shots onto cards respectively. Is is 13 seconds and 24 seconds for saving continuous 9 shots onto cards respectively.
Excerpt: Having bought this card to give me higher capacity and faster write speed (My previous card was a Fujifilm 1gb CF card which I bought from ASDA for £8), I can safely say this card is superb value for money!
Pros: Write speed, low price, extra's in box
Cons: Will naturally be superseded over time by faster, bigger cards .
Excerpt: I have the Sandisk Extreme III 2GB flash card for about four months. In this four months i have taken more then 300 pictures in high resulation mood. & still it's working very fast. it's price is a little bit high. but all in all it lasts many days.
Excerpt: Having bought this card to be used in Canon EOS 20D & 40D digital cameras they are extremely rapid and much better than the lower speed Sandisk Compact Flashes or other makes. The cameras have not as yet had to stop shooting to allow the card to catch up to write data during picture taking even in...
Excerpt: Compact Flash cards are fast amongst the most popular removable storage devices in use today. There are growing numbers of cameras manufacturers and other photo related products who are adopting this format for their products to capitalise on the booming market.
Excerpt: As a pro photographer I use cf cards on a regular basis. This is a fantastic product which has never let me down. 2gb size is practical and although I never had problems with any of my Sandisk cards it is common wisdom that it is better to use several 2gb or 1gb cards rather than a large capacity...
Excerpt: I know that talking about memory cards isn't exactly a sexy subject but they are a necessary evil for any digital photographer and believe it or not they all perform differently. I bought two of these Extreme III, 1GB CF cards in July this year to go in my Canon cameras and was bowled over by the...
Excerpt: I use a Minolta 5D camera, which i love, and this card complements it perfectly. The card is rated at 133x speed (20Mb/s) which is blisteringly fast. You can transfer the contents of the entire card to your computer in about a minute (~16Mb/s).
