I shoot using the highest quality JPEG settings possible. When the card is empty, the camera's display says it will hold 224 shots. I've yet to fill the card completely before dumping the files to my laptop, but I know it will hold around 400 shots, assuming an average of 5 MB per file.
It comes with file recovery software. I haven't needed it so far, but it's nice to know it's there in case I have some sort of file emergency.
I've been shooting digital since 2003, and while other brands have sometimes left me disappointed, Sandisk has never let me down.
The situation was very straightforward. The card failed. I lost only one photo. No data needed to be recovered. I had all the information available, including a copy of my receipt to prove that I am the original owner. After two weeks, I am still sending follow-up messages to Sandisk asking them for a return authorization, and getting no response. Sandisk has not actually declined to replace the card -- but their process, which was already rather slow, has led to a dead-end.
Several years ago, I had a Lexar CF card fail. It was a quite different experience. They replaced the card promptly. I recognize that all electronics products can fail -- but the real test is how well the manufacturer responds when that happens. My next CF card will be a Lexar, not a Sandisk.
I love the way this card sucks the image off the CMOS plane. I didn't time it, but am convinced that it is pulling down these large format images faster than my old 1Gb SanDisk card did for medium format.
I haven't tested the "extreme" aspects of the card, and hope I never have to. But I'm convinced it can handle whatever they say it can in terms of temperature variations.
The data recovery software included is equally amazing. I was able to salvage pictures on my card I accidentally erased quite long ago with no loss. This comes with a warning--pictures you "deleted" remain on the camera, so it needs to be wiped securely before exchanging hands.
Finally, this card while fast, is only as fast as the camera. If you don't need this speed, there are slower, cheaper ones available.
