    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 card for photos and videos in my Rebel T3i. The read/write speeds were a bit higher than what I usually use but at a discount price. I wish I could have purchased more of them.

        using this card in a Panasonic DMC FZ200 (Bought from B&H) after partly filling the card i tested its speed with CrystalDiskMark and the result was,Read 86.46MB/s Write 64.02MB/s which is more than satisfying for me. Another thing was the price which was a real bargain

          I am pleased with the capacity and speed of this card for the price. I did have a little difficulty removing this card from the card slot on my computer. Never had that problem with any other SD cards. I bought two and I have the same problem with both cards. Maybe some dimension is off by a tad.

                          I am a big fan of PNY products! I am using flash drives and now I purchased 64 GB memory card for my DSLR Canon. This card is very fast and takes more than 14 hours of HD video. The plus is also that it's made in South Korea, where quality is very high.

                                PNY has been a brand I've gone back to since the days of the early CD burners. Others have rated PNY products as garbage, but I've not had an issue with any of their stuff. I have always recommended PNY to people, as it's a brand not many are familiar with, but with the same reliablity and (usually) a lower cost. As for the SD cards, so far, so good, they are performing as good as SanDisk and Lexar.

                                  I bought this card for use with my Sony FDR – AX100 and I was concerned about performance. This card has worked perfectly for 4K video acquisition as well as the special effects that Sony has, slow-motion, dual file and still Photo during video filming at the same time. Great value, great performance, BH photo, I will be back as this product delivered as promised.

                                    I shoot large raw files using a Nikon D810...It has the capacity w/o having to carry numerous SD cards when out on shooting assignments.

                                        I use this in my Canon 70D, this card provides more then enough room for 1000's of pictures.

                                          Very pleased with this fast memory card. It had an excellent price compared to other 64 gb cards so I was skeptical as to why it was so low. Still not sure because it was well worth the money. Super fast SDXC card that has excellent upload and download speeds. I bought two for this price and am very pleased.
