I use the CompactFlash Memory Cards in my Nikon D700 Camera. These cards are the perfect size for me, I record simultaneous RAW and Fine JPEG images, which is about 500 sets of images per card. With larger GB cards there is too much risk, for me, of loosing a huge number of images. More 16GB cards is cheap insurance to secure my images. The cards are fast recording, fast with downloads to my computer and most importantly RELIABLE. The pricing is appropriate. B&H customer service is outstanding. I am a semiprofessional photographer and do not receive any kind of compensation from B&H or any other entity for my comments.

    Comments about SanDisk 16 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Cards (2-Pack):

    Have been using SanDisk cards since I went digital 15 years ago. No problems with any of them. Still have my original 2 & 4 GB cards. Reasonably priced & reliable.

      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.

                These are minimum necessary speeds for video and shot bursts. Get at least these or better for video recording.

                                  I've never had a problem with a SanDisk card so I choose them for critical uses like cards for my DSLR. A two-pack of 16gb Extreme cards also fits the bill for storage space, speed and price. Combined with my D300 they store many hundreds of images each and write fast enough that I never run out of buffer, even shooting raw. Sure a faster card would download to my computer a bit faster but I can always multitask for those few minutes and enjoy my savings.

                                          Fast enough for my purposes. I don't do a ton of 10 fps with raw+jpeg, but have a bit. Never felt these cards were slowing the camera down at all. Been using Sandisk for years, never had a problem.

                                            Comments about SanDisk 16 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Cards (2-Pack):

                                            I recently had a competitor's CompactFlash memory card crash sometime between leaving the pool and trying to download the 800+ pictures that I had taken at a state high school swim meet. I've not had a similar experience with SanDisk, so will be using SanDisk exclusively for now.

                                              Sandisk has always been the best for photography storage . The most reliable of all the lot available in the market..

                                              They are fast, durable & Inexpensive.
