I currently shoot with a Nikon D80 & have been using another brand of 2GB 133 speed Pro SD Card. My only complaint with that combo has been when I shoot a series of rapid sequence shots & the buffer fills after six RAW exposures, always stalling my camera at the most inapropriate time. After reading the specs on the Extreme III, & especially noting the 30MB speed, I had to give one a try, WOW!! If you shoot action photography you have to try this card, my firt trial gave an increase to nine raw shots & then the camera didn't stall while waiting for the buffer to clear, it's exposure rate just slowed a bit. There was also an equally notable increase in speed when transferring my exposures to my computer.

Never got to test the speed because it won't read properly on my computer. Using a MacBook Pro, I can't reformat it because it is read as a 2.2TB card and the computer can't allocate the memory. All photos show as corrupted. After visiting forums, many people have had issues using the Extreme III and higher end Nikons.

      I use this card in a Canon Powershot G12 and haven't been disappointed, fast enough but it could be faster, even tough I haven't seen this kind of card in any faster rating than 10, they come only in 2,4,6 and 10.

            I only use SanDisk. I've used other brands but SanDisk never lets me down. I once heard someone had a SanDisk memory card go through the wash and still worked. Shortly after, I accidentally put one through the wash and to no surprise it worked and that was some time ago and it still works.

              My first SD card from this manufacturer. Using CF cards since 7 or 8 years from this brand and never being disappointed with no any single failure it was the only logical choice.

                I use the card on a Lumix GF1, and it performs very well. Write times are very fast, and capacity is fine for photos; I would recommend the 8GB version if you do a lot of videos. I have had several SanDisk cards and they have been all very reliable; haven't had any problems with them. This is the best of the bunch because of its speed, although it is pricey (but well worth it.)

                          Use with point and shoot camera and with D-SLR cameras. Prefer 4 GB to larger to prevent loss if there is a malfunction, so far so good. It holds enough photos and movies to fill a DVD.

                                    Comments about SanDisk 4GB Extreme SDHC Memory Card:

                                    So I just compared the difference between this card and the blue SanDisk 2GB class 2 card in my D40x. What a difference. I fired off a 7-shot burst with the blue card and the access lamp on the camera took 18.66 seconds to go out. With this San Disk Extreme class 10 card, it took 9.66 seconds. This will make a huge difference in my aviation shots. I'll gladly take twice as fast performance, thank you. And I got two of these to get a $30 rebate. 'Nuff said.

                                            With rebate, not much more than other 4 gb quality cards. I feel better with SanDisk or Lexar and this is speed (not merely) class-rated, a bit more "truth-in-advertising."
