      Delkin is lesser known, but the cards tend to be decent. I have an old Delkin 128mb CF card I picked up years ago that is still working fine. My experience with Delkin is the cards are reasonably reliable and decent value for the price. This 8gb card fits that description well.

      The card writes reasonably quickly on my 5D mk II and I have had no issues with general shooting or recording short video clips. I have not tested the card under heavy motor drive use for sports and such, but for general use (and working in a studio) it was more than fast enough to get the job done. It also worked fine with my old Eos 1Ds. For the price, it delivers good performance.

      However, it formats below the stated 8gb capacity - actual available size once formatted is approx 6.75gb. No card ever formats exactly to the stated space due to how formatting and file allocation tables work, but losing over 1gb off the rated capacity seems way off the mark. That said, it holds over 200 raw + large fine jpg images from my 5D mkII, so the capacity is still workable.

      I own 2 of these cards, and am satisfied with what they give you for the price. As long as they stay significantly cheaper than the Lexar 600-1000x cards (and other good high speed cards), the value is good.

      Ideal use is as a backup memory card (where the price/performance is very good, and the smaller capacity shouldn't cause problems). It can work as a main card for low volume shooters or people who don't always shoot in raw, and it will also function well as a main memory card on older cameras such as the original 5D or 1Ds, where the max card size for the camera is 8gb.

                      I use the card with Canon DSLR bodies, typically shooting the medium sized RAW file option (about 10MP) each. The card easily keeps up with my shooting style which often involves rapid bursts. I was actually surprised it performs as well as it does, given the very reasonable price. I've had good luck with Delkin products in the past and this card is no exception.

                              I have no problem shooting bursts of images with my 5dmii. Never lags.

                                  this card seems to be working every bit as good as my Sandisk....for 1/2 the price! Well made with attention to detail.

                                    The card is great!!! Probably one of the best buys in media. I wish I could find someting to complain about at this time. Has worked extremly well. I am not a professional photographer. However, I do enjoy photography. I Hope that I have helped someone make up their mind.

                                      Delkin is lesser known, but the cards tend to be decent. I have an old Delkin 128mb CF card I picked up years ago that is still working fine. My experience with Delkin is the cards are reasonably reliable and decent value for the price. This 8gb card fits that description well.

                                      The card writes reasonably quickly on my 5D mk II and I have had no issues with general shooting or recording short video clips. I have not tested the card under heavy motor drive use for sports and such, but for general use (and working in a studio) it was more than fast enough to get the job done. It also worked fine with my old Eos 1Ds. For the price, it delivers good performance.

                                      However, it formats below the stated 8gb capacity - actual available size once formatted is approx 6.75gb. No card ever formats exactly to the stated space due to how formatting and file allocation tables work, but losing over 1gb off the rated capacity seems way off the mark. That said, it holds over 200 raw + large fine jpg images from my 5D mkII, so the capacity is still workable.

                                      I own 2 of these cards, and am satisfied with what they give you for the price. As long as they stay significantly cheaper than the Lexar 600-1000x cards (and other good high speed cards), the value is good.

                                      Ideal use is as a backup memory card (where the price/performance is very good, and the smaller capacity shouldn't cause problems). It can work as a main card for low volume shooters or people who don't always shoot in raw, and it will also function well as a main memory card on older cameras such as the original 5D or 1Ds, where the max card size for the camera is 8gb.

                                        Delkin is making inroads with their products .
                                        I took a chance on this card based on reviews and great price.
                                        So far excellent bang for the buck.Time will tell.
                                        I have 2 of these and 2 16 gig more than fast enough for d300s.

                                            I rarely have trouble with my CF cards, but I do periodically put new ones in to service. These aren't the absolute fastest cards you can get, but they're plenty fast for me (I'm a single-frame kind of guy) and seem to be well-made.

                                                  I use this card in a very demading environment both dealing with the elements, as well as non-stop shooting, it has yet to give me problems. One of those things that when in use, it just works. I don't worry about loosing information, my files are always there. Great value for this product.

                                                    I use it in my 5D Mk II and the write speed is more than adequate. Have not used it yet for weddings or events, but I will try it on my next job. I don't expect that it will fail me! I purchased this item just to see how good it would be considering the rather low price and I am not disappointed.
