After purchasing my Canon EOS 1DmkIV (10 frames/second) I found the camera would stall in a few seconds using my old cards. Shooting a bird in flight would be suddenly interrupted at the most inconvenient times when the buffer filled, which was quite soon. With this card I can shoot unlimited RAW files at 10 fps without slowing at all. Shotting RAW+JPEG still slows things down after the buffer fills, but never stalls completely. If you need to shoot continuous action with a camera that produces large files, it wil not get any better than this until the next generation card comes along.

Previously on Amazon, I have favorably reviewed CF cards at successively higher standards of capacity and write performance. This is my current champion. It is expensive but enables me to keep a 5D Mk2 pumping out RAWs without the camera stalling while waiting for the buffer to clear. Slower cards (133x, 300x) will stop the camera, but I've never been halted when using one of these 600x cards. A smaller version (e.g. 16GB) would have the same virtue at a lower price, but with RAWs on the order of 25MB apiece, one has to have speed and capacity in the same card. (I did previously buy one of the 16GB versions of this card as a "low-cost experiment," and it's fine for shorter jobs.)

I give four stars instead of five because of a fluky issue with sometimes (only sometimes) having the card not recognized at first when connected to a computer for download. This has happened with two of these cards using two different Firewire readers on three different machines running two different operating systems, and it hasn't happened with the 16GB version or with any other cards, so I think it's a card thing, not a "me" thing. It always works after a few disconnect-reconnect tries, but it does make a fellow nervous. A bit of a mystery, but not one to make me use slower, smaller cards.

Do note that SanDisk periodically updates their cards while retaining the original name. I ordered my Extreme Pro 32GB on May 12, 2012 from another site (very reputable, authorized reseller, but will remain unnamed here).

My card is marked as UDMA 7 (see photo), which is a nice surprise, as on SanDisk's website, only the 128GB cards are marked as supporting UDMA 7. I'm not sure if it makes much difference, however, as the card is also marked as having a maximum speed of 90 MB/s. In the X speed rating that other manufacturers use, this is a 600x speed card. There are cards by other manufacturers that claim 1000x speed (150 MB/s) but I have not had the opportunity to test them. Interestingly, the box states "UDMA 6".

(UDMA 6 has a maximum transfer rate of 133 MB/s. UDMA 7 has a maximum transfer rate of 166 MB/s. And if anyone is curious, 1x is the speed a CD-ROM reads at audio CD data rate - 150 kB/s.)

There's also an interesting mark on the lower left corner of my card. It's an icon of a movie clapboard, with the number "20" in it. The box explained this to mean a guaranteed sustained 20 MB/s write speed when recording video.

Other than the card in a clamshell protective case, the only other item included is a slip of paper with the serial for a 1 year license of RescuePRO Deluxe. Like SanDisk's other premium lines (Ultra, Extreme and Extreme Pro), this card comes with a limited lifetime warranty - limited because the data is not covered, only the physical media.

I tested the read and write speed on my desktop computer (i7 920, 12GB RAM, PCIe USB 3.0 card with NEC chipset) with a

I've been using this card for well over a year now, shooting JPEGs, Raw files, and HD video, and am satisfied with this card.

It is fast, allowing unlimited HD video recording time (well, up to the camera's limit), and continuous Raw w/ JPEG (I use small JPEGs). I used the camera to shoot video for full work days (9 hours), depleting 2+ batteries, and the card worked without any problems, and getting ~75% full. It might be wise to use smaller cards, and change them everytime the battery runs out, in which case one might want to use smaller 8GB or 16GB cards.

Download speed is also fast, though even if the card reader and disk allow downloading at 90MB/s, downloading 32GB would take at least 6 minutes.

This card is expensive, but that's the price of big, fast, and reliable. I'm happy with it.

I have used two 32Gb SanDisk Extreme Pros in my Nikon D3X for a couple of weeks now. I thought they were adequately fast enough to catch action at a sporting event and was pleased with my purchase at a little over $320 each.

Then a friend of mine showed me his D3X with new Lexar Pro 600 cards and suddenly I was upset for not waiting for the Lexar. He paid about $24 each more for his two cards and they are infinitely faster when writing from the camera to the cards than my SanDisk cards that are supposedly the same speed. He tells me that the difference lies in the chip circuitry in the Lexar cards. Coulda, shoulda, woulda. Next time I'll wait...I'm a little disappointed in my purchase decision.
