    While I don't use these cards for movies, primarily for stills, their speed and reliability are important to me. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to determine if a card reader has sufficient abilities to read and utilize the higher speeds these cards offer. Often card specs are inadequate, even though the readers might be OK. I now have 3 32 GB and 1 16 GB high speed CF cards, enough for my needs using my Canon 5D Mark II. The price at B&H was right, too. It is amazing how much more other vendors charge for these cards, especially in Canada.

    I've consistently purchased Lexar over other brands because of the reliability. Normally, I've shot with nothing more than 16GB CF cards, but lately I've found it more practical to shoot with 32GB cards so I don't have to switch as often. With the great price on these, I figured I'd get the fastest card available. While shooting a wedding a few weeks ago I had two of these in my Canon 1Dx (one for RAW and one for JPG). At one point my camera said it was still writing to the card. Figured it was just normal if it was converting for JPG. Unfortunately, it locked up my camera, and I ended up losing 15 or so images that didn't write properly to either card. I used another one of these cards in my Canon 5D III to see if it was the body or the card. While transferring images from my card into Lightroom, I got an error warning that 66 of them could not be read. I'm hoping it's just a glitch, because Lexar cards have been fantastic for me. B&H, being true to their form with spectacular customer service, is going to replace these for me at no additional cost.

        Comments about Lexar 32GB Professional 1066x Compact Flash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

        I recently purchased this card to improve the speed of writing to card of myD800. What I mean is that as large as these files are(40-50 megs)my previous card 800x was not fast enough and it interfered with the camera's focusing for the next shot. I've noticed a substantial improvement in the writing to card process. This card is also very good for video.

          I use these guys to shoot weddings with my Nikon D800. Huge files and handles them wonderfully. Saved a little with the 2 pack which typically can do a full wedding. Three to be safe though!

                  I just bough 4 more of the 32GB CF cards from Lexar not because the 4 I already own wore out, but because I've hired a 2nd photog. for a shoot. I regularly use Lexar 32 and 16 GB cards in a 5dM3 for video and have had no issues or problems. They're solid from my experience.

                      I have several Lexar Pro cards and they are fast and reliable. These cards write more RAW files to my cameras than my slower cards, and they hit the maximum stated shots before the buffers fill on both the Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 7D Mark II. Highly recommended.

                            Had to upgrade my cards to keep up with the speed of the D4s that replaced my old faithful D300s. I can hold the shutter release down and fill this card with the camera never buffering out. Spendy compared to others I have used in the past but a bargain compared to the XQD card in the other slot of the D4s ... only 2 cameras use XQD cards so we are a captive audience with only 2 suppliers.

                              I use this product in the second memory card slot in my Nikon D4 and D4s and in my Nikon D700's. In the D4 and D4s, it is used as a backup card to the XQD.

                                These cards are exactly as advertised and a good deal at the price. I haven't had an opportunity to put them thru the paces yet, but am confident they will hold up and deliver.

                                Like their 16GB predecessors but bigger

                                      I'm shooting more youth football this year so more cards is a necessity. I had standardized on the 16GB version as the best price/performance but these are now it. It's nice not having to change cards as often and Lexar's warranty has been well worth it. I've pretty much worn out two cards and both were replaced with minimum of headache.
