I have this card in my Olympus E-420 and it works great (I've tried it with PQI, Sandisk and PNY SD and SDHC cards). The write speed is slower than straight to a CF card (Sandisk Extreme III) but it's still within 10 to 15 seconds (to transfer a 6 shot Raw+FineJpeg continuous burst).

The real reason I'm writing this review though, is that Delkin has amazing customer service. I wrote them an email asking about the slower transfer speeds and they wrote back with all the details of how transfer speeds are defined and realized in a particular camera/adapter/SD card setup. They made sure that I had all the info I needed and even offered to dig up some detailed specs on this particular card. This kind of customer service is VERY RARE in todays world and it was amazing to see. Pleasantly surprised.

I purchased this adapter to use with my Eye-Fi card, as it is an SD card and not compatible with my Canon Digital Rebel XTi. It does the trick, but sometimes it's a bit sluggish, although that could be the Eye-Fi's fault, too. Over all I'd say it doesn't cause a problem, but if someone has some benchmark testing that shows an adapter with a faster speed I'd probably buy one of those instead.

I have several camera.Most of the large Canons like the 40D or 5D use CF cards. My newer small cameras such as the Canon G 9 use the little postage stamp sized cards. I went on a trip to France and knew I would take a thousand pictures, so instead of getting more CF cards,I got this adapter which let me put the little cards into the big camera. It works great. Only two things should be of concern. Don't try to jam the adapter in the wrong way. You might bend one of the connector pins in the big camera.The little SC card goes in to the adapter at right angles to the socket. Also when reviewing your pictures on the camera screen,the images seem to come up a little slower.

I should have read the reviews more carefully before wasting my money on this thing. It is thicker than a standard CF card. I can't believe they don't just say that up front! Everybody is supposed to label products like this as CF Type II because it is thicker than Type I. If you just say CF or CompactFlash, then it is presumed that you are Type I. This Amazon ad doesn't make it very clear that this is a Type II instead of a Type I. The manufacturer is also guilty since their packaging also misleads you into thinking it is Type I. Only on the BACK of the product in small print does it say Type II but online buyers can't see the backside!

The Delkin SD to CF card works great in my Canon G2. I had a issue with it not recognizing it at first but called the Delkin company and they informed me that my camera couldn't read a card that was higher than 4gb. So when I took out the 8 gb card and got a 4 gb card it worked great. Absolute gem.

I was skeptical of using this in my Nikon D300, D200 and D2X cameras, but it works great with the Eye-Fi wireless SD card. Every shot I take (I shoot sports for colleges) is transmitted flawlessly to my MacBook Pro, 50 feet away. I now use it every game. I would recommend this for anyone using Compactflash now, if they have a need to wirelessly send their pictures to a computer.

I recently bought a new digital camera that requires compact flash cards instead of sdhc cards. I started to buy new Transcend compact flash cards, but found in the reviews of the card, some buyers complaining that the Transcend cards sometimes suddenly stop working. While I had no trouble with the Transcend shdc cards in the past, this made me cautious enough to initially only buy 2 compact flash cards. And, wanting to be prepared in case of an emergency, I also bought this adapter to use with my existing sdhc cards in case of an emergency.

Since I did not buy this adapter for normal use I did not expect too much. All I wanted was for the adapter to work with my current (class 10) sdhc cards if needed, and it does that well enough. It is slow, but it works.

The 400x compact flash cards will allow me to record HD movies without any visual indication of buffer buildup (as did the class 10 sdhc cards in my previous camera), but the adapter and class 10 shdc card will only allow me to make a 4 second movie before the camera stops filming. As I said, the adapter is slow.

Single shot raw pictures take an extended time to write to the disk, but they do get written. Continuous shooting of raw or jpg stills take a really extended time to write to the disk, but they do get written.

In summary, the adapter does exactly what I wanted it to do - substitute for a normal compact flash card in an emergency. I had hoped that using fast sdhc cards would allow fast transfer of data to the disk, but that does not seem to be the case and I assume that the transfer mechanism within the card is the reason. Still, it does work and I will continue to carry the card and extra sdhc cards around until I have enough compact flash cards to feel comfortable. I won't be taking any HD movies if I am using the adapter, but I will be able to take stills and that is what I normally do, so I am satisfied with the purchase.

This is a relatively simply product, and as such this will be a brief review.

The product does exactly what it says. It allows you to use SD cards in Compact Flash devices. All of my recent computers have in-built SD card readers. And my iPad Camera Connection Kit includes an SD card reader. But my older Canon DSLR uses Compact Flash. This adapter allows me to use SD cards in my DSLR. Now I don't need to use a USB cable or external reader to download my pictures. I have fewer devices to carry and my workflow is simplified.

The only caveat is that this device is a Compact Flash Type II card, which is slightly thicker than most other Compact Flash cards. Make sure your camera can accomodate the form factor. It's the same size as a Microdrive.

This adapter works perfectly in my Nikon D100 and really adds versatility. I can use the SD cards I already have for my point-and-shoot cameras as media when I get low. What it really helps with, though, is the occasional potential emergency. SD cards are both cheaper and more widely available than the CF media the camera actually takes. While it's just perceptibly slower than my CF media, it works fine and that's really only an issue for someone shooting sports or the like. Much recommended.

I brought the adapter to get a Eye Fi Pro X2 flash card working in my Nikon D700. Unfortunately the Delink adapter is too think and do not fit. Really annoying and not clear from the product description
