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! It's improved the write speed of my slow 300D considerably, and has done exactly what it's been designed to do.
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Cons: Will naturally be superseded over time by faster, bigger cards .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 rapid fire sports mode. Have had no failure with data capture and have been used in extreme temperatures, holiday in Australia (39C) and a family wedding in Austria (-10C).
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. You'll find for example that better inkjet printers will now have a capatible slot somewhere.
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 one. The reason is that when something does go wrong, you do not loose all of your data. The speed is great and I have never experienced any lag with extreme iii cards.
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 difference in performance between them and my Jessops 256MB CF cards. The Extreme III's are rated at 133x speed which I think should work out at about 20MB per sec.
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). The 133x refers to the standardised speed of transferring with a cd-rom, hence 1x is 150Kb/s for reference.
Excerpt: I recently purchased a new Canon Digital SLR camera - I wanted a memory card that was capable of dealing with a large number of photographs quickly & efficiently after a lot of searching I came across this card - believe it or not these cards range from 1GB (or lower ) to a phenomenal 8GB (I have trouble filling up a 1GB card). With my camera (bearing in mind that this could vary depending on what camera you are using) I can take up to 999 Photos.
Pros: eXtremely fast performance writing to card & uploading
Summary: Produit et délais de livraison satisfaisants. Rapport qualité prix au rendez-vous.L'utilité de la rapidité annoncée n'est pas très probante avec un appareil haut de gamme même sur des séries à 6images seconde en Jpeg, nettement appréciable en raw par contre.
