Bought 4 of these to use in recording opera recordings with my new FDR-AX100 camcorder (4K). They performed like a champ recording without a hitch 12 MADAMA BUTTERFLY and 4 MIKADO performances over three weekends. They handle the rigors of 4K amazingly well. Oh yes...the ingestion of video back into the computer is both fast and painless.

I have two (2) of these cards. I got them for extended use in a DSLR, and for lower bit-rate video. Specifically, I have used them with an Olympus EM-5 for photos, and in particular timelaps sequences. I have also used it in my Lumix FZ-150 which will shoot in AVCHD 1920 x 1080 - 60 fps @ 28Mbps and H.264 - 1920 x 1080 - 30 fps - 20Mbps. For these purposes, it works fine. However, when used with a GH2 shooting Long GOP (DrewNet) at 70 Mbps, I get card read errors. Up the bit rate a little further and recording stops because the card cannot keep up. Very odd. Recall that read performance of this card is supposed to be 90MBps That's 90 megabytes per second. As for Write speeds, even the PNY site does not cite write times. I suspect because it is extrememly variable and flat out depands on file size. I found on @ where someone tested 500 mb files (not a good test of video performance) and he found that write speeds were in the 63MBps range. Under these results, it should work. Math is as follows: A video stream of 70-80Mbps is about 10 MegaBytes ps. And if you double it because of the overall efficientcy or to account for peak bitrates in detailed scenes, you are at at most 20 Megabytes ps. 1/3 of what this card should handle for write speeds as tested. Yet it simply can't keep up with the writes. it fails nearly every time ther eis detail and motion or autofocus is engaged. It fails on replay very often - most of the time. Remember I have two of these cards and BOTH behave exactly the same and I can reproduce these issues with both at will. On the other hand a Sandisk 64GB card with 45MBps rating (Extreme) (Not even the Extreme Pro model), keeps up fine. So all I can say is that to my mind the PNY on large video files cannot handle more than 10-20 MegaBytes ps reliably. This PNY card also has a weird format on it... price is good and for relatively low bitrates it is OK. So if you ar shooting stills or stock low bitrate video... say within 30Mbps (megaBITS) you will probably do fine and the price is very attractive.

                    I use this for video and it's never had any problems. I use it on a Rebel t3i and a 70D. I use it regularly. I really don't know what to say other then it's great for the price. PNY has been known for a lower quality product but this has maintained speed and hasn't hindered me at all. Though if you are going to download Magic Lantern however, it may work better with a SansDisk.

                            I'm very disappointed. When I shoot with my 5d mark III in full HD all-I, the video record for 3 seconds, the buffer indicator appears in the screen and then stop. It is weird because they say that the write speed is 60mb/s but I can't believe it. Same thing when I shoot in raw. When my card is half full (32gb of 64gb), it is very very slow between each pictures.

                            Not for a professional use.

                                Was taking hundreds of Raw & JPEG pics, and didn't come close to filling this up.

                                      It's an SD card, it works with my camera a Canon 60D, it has the storage I want at the price point that is nice and it has good speed on the write side.

                                        Faster read write speed that other cards of the same size. Holds a respectable number of images even when shooting raw with the 36 megapixel D800

                                            It is my first SDXC card that I bought because my Sony a77mkII had firmare update that allowed to use XAVC-S movie format (50mB/sec only with SDXC card. Using the card a few weeks, no issues so far.

                                              No issues with this one. Fast enough to keep up with my dslr in continuous shooting mode. Can hold thousands of photos.
