Product Description


This Sandisk Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card provides 60 MB/second read/write speeds, and is UDMA enabled. You'll see it takes more than a great digital SLR camera to bring your ideas to life.

SanDisk engineered its Power Core Controller to take whatever your camera's buffer can dish out. By distributing image data across the card more rapidly and efficiently, this card delivers professional performance with less wear and tear.

Best-in-class quality assurance starts with memory components designed from the ground up for shock and vibration resistance-and sealed with RTV silicone coating for added protection against moisture and humidity. Rigorous stress-testing procedures further assure these cards perform under pressure, inside and out, even in extreme environments.

I've done some write benchmarks on the 16GB version of this card and others with my Canon 40D. Here are the results:

SanDisk Extreme 60 MB/s 16GB (400X)
17 RAW, 17 seconds to clear

SanDisk Extreme III 30 MB/s 8GB (200X)
18 RAW, 17 seconds to clear

Lexar Pro 1GB 133X
20 RAW, 16 seconds to clear

Kingston Ultimate 4 GB 133X
19 RAW, 21 seconds to clear

Kingston High Speed 1024 MB 80X
18 RAW, 37 seconds to clear

For this circa-2007 DSLR, no card over 133X improves write speeds. No benefit was expected; cameras of this vintage max out at about 12 MB/s.

For more recent bodies, head directly to Rob Galbraith's CF/SD/XQD database. He's tested every significant Canon and Nikon camera since October 2008, starting with Canon's 50D and Nikon's D90, with every significant memory card.

* A few general notes:

There are speed variances even among cards of equal rating. Brand matters. Cameras from Canon, Nikon, and Sony perform best with cards from SanDisk and Lexar. Other brands, even if capable of rated speed in a card reader, tend not to rival those two in-camera.

Card-to-computer transfer rates will be limited by the card reader interface or the camera. Most cameras directly connected to a computer send data at 10-15 MB/s. With card readers, USB 2.0, the most common interface, caps out at about 30 MB/s. Firewire 800 is about three times as fast and will max out this card, as will USB 3.0 and IDE/SATA converters. As well, all CF cards rated for 30 MB/s or more support UDMA.

* Are higher-rated cards faster?

Autofocus, turn-on speed, JPEG writes, movie recording, image review, maximum framerate, and so on are almost completely unaffected by faster cards.

So far I've been happy with the performance of this Sandisk product. I've used Sandisk memory for some time now in my Canon SLRs and have never had any trouble with any of their cards. They do cost more but I feel it's worth it to have dependable CF cards. As far as performance, the Extreme cards are excellent. Until the buffer fills, my Canon 7D shoots about the same number of burst shots with the Extreme (60 MB/sec) as with my older Extreme III (about 20 RAW (18 MP) images at 8+ fps). However, after the buffer fills, there's a huge difference between the two cards. With the Extreme III, the camera chokes very quickly and takes much longer to finish writing the data. With the Extreme, I can continue shooting about 2 fps for several seconds.
Update: I've now had two of these cards for over a year & a half with zero problems. I even ran one through a complete wash cycle in the washing machine by accident, dried it out, & it's still working great. The picture data on the card was not corrupted our lost at all!

This card is everything I was looking for. Allows for continuous shooting, downloads fast, almost impossible to completely fill the card in one setting in that one gets tired of shooting before the card is full. 60MB per second is FAST.

I have upgraded to this card from SanDisk Extreme III, and the difference in speed is incredible! Canon 7D no longer has any 'pauses'; highly recommended!

I purchased this card for use with a Canon 5D Mark II DSLR and compared to the Extreme 3 cards that I owned prior to this, the increase in speed is noticeable. I wasn't really able to notice any difference in-camera (I don't usually shoot at high frame rates) and recording 1080p video at 30fps works fine on both cards, but I did notice an increase in transfer speeds with my UDMA enabled USB2 card reader. I can realistically transfer 1.5GB of files in about 40 seconds (transferring to a 7200RMP firewire 800 hard drive on my Mac) To transfer those same files from the Extreme III card, it takes about 53 seconds. Definitely not 2x as fast, but technically this card costs less than the Extreme III! So, for the money, I am satisfied. Highly recommended.

(posted this review on both product pages for this card, for some reason Amazon has them listed in two places)

This is a very fast compact flash card available at a great price that I use in my Canon 50D digital SLR camera. I do a lot of digital picture shooting in RAW file format that has the camera dealing with very large file sizes, and the ScanDisk Extreme 60MB/s card is able to write those large files to the card with very impressive speed, even when taking several shots in succession. And the 8GB storage capacity is adequate for essentially all my digital camera needs.

I have been using Sandisks for years and after buying a new Canon 5D Mark II with its 21MB files, I needed more capacity than my current 4GB cards would hold so I have started by buying this 8GB card which will get me about 300 images (depending on ISO, etc..). I will ad a couple more and probably a 16GB card as well. I had a couple of problems with Lexars back a few years ago and switched to Sandisk and the only card I have had a problem with was due to my own mistake by forgetting to turn the camera power off when inserting the card which caused it to short out. I have been very happy with the many Sandisk CF cards I have owned over the years and they are all still working fine. I also highly recommend the Sandisk Firewire CF Card Reader - it is so much faster than the USB 2.0 card readers :)Sandisk Extreme FireWire Reader
