Planning to travel light on a 10 day vacation including Yellowstone, I wanted to forego taking a laptop which meant I had to find an option for downloading images to make room on my 16 GB & 32 GB SanDisk compact flash memory cards, anticipating that I might consume them. The solution: another card. I already managed to fill the 32 GB card once before; a 64 GB card should be a cost effective solution for shooting JPEG+RAW on my 5DMII without the worry of running out. It was a perfect solution. Cost effective, fast and reliable.

Using in a Sony A300. Works fine in camera but will only work in a card reader with a computer. When trying to connect the A300 to a Win 8.1 computer with the 64GB CF inserted, computer needs to format the CF. If you format via computer, CF card needs to be formatted again when using with the camera. Catch 22. Don't have this issue with other CF cards (SanDisk 16GB Ultra)

    Comments about SanDisk 64 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card:

    SanDisk memory cards have always been my personal preference, as I have been using them for many years without issue. SanDisk has excellent guarantees and help in place in case of any problems the end user may encounter, and the quality of their memory cards has outperformed many other brands I have been using. Would always recommend SanDisk to friends, family and other users.

      CF cards get used a lot in motion picture production these days. I'm using mine in a Sound Devices 633 mixer/recorder. The SanDisk Extreme cards are one of the pre-tested and approved brands listed on the Sound Devices sight.

        Comments about SanDisk 64 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card:

        I have used SanDisk memory cards since the late 90's I believe. Two years ago I tried another leading brand. All was good for a while. Then in the last few months I started noticing a white band across some of my images. Other cards did not show this on the same body. I have never had the slightest problem with any of my SanDisk cards. I will never wander again! I even had two cards go through the washer & dryer and although I took them out of service they still worked just fine. IMO one can not go wrong with SanDisk.

          Comments about SanDisk 64 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card:

          It seems to handle video recording well. There are very few times the video will stop and this often when the card is over half full. Sometimes if am moving from my studio to home I also edit using the card with Adobe Premiere pro. So am pushing it a lot and that could be the reason for recording to stop abruptly. I average three shoots a week and it stores all of it.

            Speed. With large DSLR sensors you need a memory card with speed and capacity. This one has both at a fair price, to boot.

                    Image files of raw shots from my 5D lll are fairly large. With the 64 Gig card I can focus on the shots and don't have to worry about running out of memory.
