    I bought 2 San Disk SDHC Cards: 16GB Class 10 and 16GB Class 6 for my new Nikon D7000 with two SD memory compartments.

    I configured the camera as follows:
    - the class 10 card for photo;
    - the class 6 for video.

    Enough memory space for my day of shooting - a few hundred max resolution and size JPEG or 12-bits lossless RAW stills, and occasional short (a few minutes) video.

    Both cards are fast enough, even when shooting in burst mode. San Disk has always been a well a reliable manufacturer of memory cards.

    Class 6 (10) - minimum sustainable transfer rate, namely 6MB/s (10MB/s).
    20MB/s (30MB/s) - maximum transfer rate.

    When it comes to transfer (read/write speed), the relevant limiting factors are not only the parameters of the card, e.g. class 6 with 20MB/s or class 10 with 30MB/s. The buffer ("RAM" volatile memory) of the camera also plays a significant role.

    Here is my understanding of how this works for the Nikon D7000, or a similar, or better/faster camera:

    - as the manual indicates, the Nikon D7000 can buffer up to 31 Fine, Large Size JPEG (size 7.4MB) stills. Assuming I shoot at 6fps (frames per second), all 7.4 x 6 = 44.4MB will be buffered/processed, and then written to a class 10 card in 44.4/30 = 1.48s. Since it takes 1s to shoot these stills, and buffering+writing start the moment I initiate shooting, the wait time interval between this burst and a potentially new burst or single shot is expected to be less than 1s. (approx 1.48 - 1 = 0.48s). About 16GB/7.6MB = 2015 such stills can be stored on a 16GB card. Nikon suggests less (813 for a 8GB card), probably because not all 8GB (16GB respectively) are available for storage;

    - as the manual indicates, the Nikon D7000 can buffer up to 10 NEF (RAW), Lossless compressed 14-bit (size 19.4MB) stills. Assuming I shoot at 6fps, all 19.4 x 6 = 116.4MB will be buffered/processed, and then written to a class 10 card in 116.4/30 = 3.88s. For the same reasons mentioned above, the wait time interval between this burst and a potentially new burst or single shot is expected to be less than 3s. (approx 3.888 - 1 = 2.88s). About 16GB/19.4MB = 824 such stills can be stored on a 16GB card. Nikon suggests less (223 for a 8GB card), probably because not all 8GB (16GB, respectively) are available for storage

    I chose a class 6 at 20MB/s for video, because I reasoned that storing of video (even 1080 HD) information is less demanding than storing of stills (much less resolution/size per frame).
    The Nikon D7000 can shoot 1080p at 24fps and 720p at 30fps, and can buffer up to 20min of video formated MOV - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC.

    I already own two of these and they work flawlessly in my D7000 so I bought two more. The two new ones in my D7000 would both randomly drop off the camera. The problem would follow the new cards from slot to slot, but the older ones worked perfect. The cards would just disappear and be unavailable. Reinsert the card and I was back in business. But who can work that way? Reliability is the most important thing for me. B&H was above awesome with the return - can't say enough about great customer service. I exchanged them for Lexar Prox 133x speed cards. Those card are working great, but are noticeably slower (shooting raw w/ 2nd slot backing up). 3 Stars because I love these cards, 2 stars because I had two in a row that were not not quite right for a D7000.

                          I bought two of these for use with my Panasonic HDC-SD90 and they're working well now for about two months. I record 1080p video with a bit rate of 28 Mbps and this memory card has no problem keeping up. I use the SD memory slot on my iMac or PowerBook to copy off the video files.

                            I bought this card as a storage device for my Canon T2i DSLR. As a class 10 card, it works great. I have not experienced any problems with it. The only delay I encountered when using it was between shots when shooting in continuous shooting mode while the camera was set to RAW capture. However, this was an expected delay since RAW files for an 18 megapixel camera are huge. It worked fine with no delay with the next highest setting. Overall, this is a great product and can easily handle a day of heavy shooting. When used with the T2i it can store about 610 pictures when set to RAW and obviously many more for the lower memory capture settings on the camera.

                              Good fast card with an okay price. Not too expensive like the Extreme Pro. Only thing I wish is that they have some kind of an indicator to tell you that you bought a genuine Sandisk card like a hologram logo or a serial number.

                                I own two of these cards. I use one with my Panasonic TS3 and one with my Canon T2i. I could not be happier with these cards. Images and movies save extremely fast to these cards; I do not notice any lag time. The very reasonable price makes these cards a great value.

                                  Having enough memory while out shooting all day is important. I like to have enough space to shoot as much as I want, I can always delete at the end of the day. SanDisk cards are reliable.

                                      Use this card in my D7000, couldn't be happier. Can take a lot of photos. Write speed is fairly fast. Best bang for the buck at the moment.

                                            Honestly, how do you review this? If I actually took it to the extremes, I would be under so much duress that I wouldn't even care anymore. Yes, it's that good. It holds data without any errors. 5 stars.

                                              Just got this for my Canon T3i camera and was happy with the fast transfer rate and quality. Reads and writes pretty fast

                                                        Love the compact protective case.
