Sandisk 8GB Ultra II CF Cards
15 December 2009
Summary: While I apprecaite the higher capacity of the 8GB Ultra II Sandisk CF cards, the older 4GB Ultra II cards appear to write a little faster in my Canon 40D and 50D. The difference is not noticable in single shot mode but noticeable if you do multiple high speed bursts. Even with that, I still will use the 8GB cards for events where I do not want to worry about having to change cards just when the best picture of the day comes along.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Value, Large Capacity, Reliable Performance
Summary: Good bargain! Fair price and a lot of space on the card! I am not a sports photographer though and I could imagine that the file transfer has to be faster under such conditions as 10 frames per second. Under normal conditions the card is doing pretty fine!
Pros: Easy To Use, Large Capacity, Reliable Performance, Writes/Reads fast
Summary: I wasnt sure about Ultra II, because I had Ultra III before, and I dont know how it was gonna work. But how I'm used to take pics shot by shot, the speed its enought and the price it's better. And i can take more than 900 raws!
Summary: I use it in a Canon 20D, so the card probably out speeds the machine. Overall, reliable, even in the dustiest conditions (that is, horse photography). I always buy Sandisk cards, they are the most reliable.
Summary: It does the job. I am considering getting an Extreme for shooting sports on my 40D. It just can't hold up to doing constant bursts during really fast sports. It works great other ways though. Can't beat the price.
