    The card is fast and stores/reads data reliably. Speed ist fast enough that I would not need any more on my Canon 5DMII. I may buy a second one in the future so I can distribute the risk of loosing images a little, while expanding my image store capacity.

    More memory

    in my canon20d. It's a little slow, but that's due to the camera. It works faster in the 50D. I've put these cards in the washer/dryer and they came out working.

        I purchased several of these for my Canon 7D. I have used the cards for about 3,000 shots and have not had any issues. There is no noticable difference between this card and big brand name cards marketed for the same speeds, specifically Lexar and San Disk.

                              I needed a card that can record a lot of images, and record them quickly. I shoot with a Canon 1D Mark III at 10fps. Mostly shooting action photography. The 400X writing speed is perfect for such photography along with 8 GB memory to hold up to 1995 images. I highly recomend this product...great value for the money.

                                  Having used a Transcend external hard drive for a while now, thought I would try their compact flash cards. So far, it has been plain sailing and these cards are quite a bit cheaper than a competitor's that I have been using previously.

                                  Overall, pretty impressed

                                        I bought this card for a little extra memory to shoot a race here in Arizona. I filled the card the first day but even when shooting bursts in RAW, the read/write speeds worked out very well.

                                            The card is fast and stores/reads data reliably. Speed ist fast enough that I would not need any more on my Canon 5DMII. I may buy a second one in the future so I can distribute the risk of loosing images a little, while expanding my image store capacity.

                                                  Bought this for D300s. Its speed is great, and so far no problems with any lost data.
