I'm a seasoned pro, doing volume photography. We'll put 10k to 20k or more images on these cards every year. We like the smaller card sizes like 16GB because the bigger the card, the more you can loose.
We shoot high res jpegs (controlled lighting, to all you RAW shooters) and shoot, erase, shoot for weeks on end, day after day. We had one card that was 3 years old peter out, but it had over 100000 image run through it. There comes a time when you have to own it. We did. (Thank you Nikon for having two card slots!)
The cards are fast and reliable. Download to our Mac take seconds. (8-12 gigs) So you don't lose productivity waiting on a card.

My 7D didnt work with these cards for filming. Video was all breaking into small squares. I tested two other cf from the same brand and Lexar (4gb) and worked fine. Maybe just a bad series?

                      Use these in a Nikon D3 and a D4. Since the cards are not used for video they are plenty fast. The included 1year for Rescue pro is much great for pulling images off of our old cards that were failing.

                            These SanDisk CF cards are the perfect memory for My older but reliable Nikon D2x, and I highly recommend them. I've never had an issue with them - nothing but first class results, and I've lost count of the number I've used over the years.
