I love to shoot professional tennis matches and I have noticed that my Nikon D3 is buffering faster and allowing me to shoot for lengthier bursts of time at 9-11 frames per second with these high-speed cards. The storage capacity of 32 GB is also very nice -- I can shoot about 6,000 shots with two of these cards in my D3, which is enough to fit a one-week long tournament.

I am looking forward to shooting this year's LA Women's Tennis Championship in August without changing out compact flash cards. Very cool and a major enhancement to my passion for covering sports and tennis in particular. I found the price per card to be very reasonable as well.

Not quite as fast as expected!

It works fine. Before buying it I tried hard to find clear advice about whether it offered any benefits above the 'Extreme' version for my Canon 7D, and could not.

In the end I chose it because of the potential benefits for shooting extended video or in high-speed drive mode (8 fps), which I love in certain situations. B&H had a great price and I also liked the promise of higher transfer speed to my computer, which I think it achieves. But I've been surprised that it can't cope with more than about 18 high-speed shots in a row, which is no better (and I think perhaps a little worse) than my 8GB 'Extreme' card achieves. Not that I expect to need this performance very often - if ever - I just wanted to test it and see what the difference was. Haven't tried it for video yet!

    Comments about SanDisk 32GB CompactFlash Memory Card Extreme Pro 600x UDMA:

    First CF card - always used SDs. With my Canon 5D Mark III, I can put both cards in and have SO much memory space! Actually, I wish Canon had put in two SD slots since none of my other cameras use CF, but I suppose it's good to have the extra space. But CF cards are a lot more expensive than SD cards. So now I'm back to wishing my camera had two SD card slots. I bought the CF, but could've spent the money on two SD cards.

                    I bought this card in anticipation of buying a newer SLR with higher megapixels and video capability soon. In the meantime, I use it in my D3 and D300. SanDisk's CF cards are always reliable and 32GB is plenty of capacity for RAW files.

                        I have used a variety of SanDisk CF and SD cards for years in three different bodies, and I have never had a single problem with any of them. I bought this to handle bursts with the larger files of a 5D Mark III. Works flawlessly.

                                  I only buy Sandisk cards. They are the best in my opinion. Have never had a failure. They do the job. You can get cheaper brands, but my work is too important to leave the contents of the card to chance. Got it on sale, so that made it a little easier. Just make sure that the speed of this card is compatible with your camera. It ought to be, but just make sure.

                                      Lots of memory for the new DSLRs and there gigantic files. This model is modestly priced and performs well. The particular size is the best price point per GB of storage.

                                        Reliable performance, handles heat and cold temp situations well. Large storage capacity for shooting RAW, which eliminates changing cards during weddings, sporting events and location shooting. Well worth the cost.

                                            My old Nikon D-700 had been a trusted workhorse for years, but I'd somehow never purchased really good storage, and on more than one occasion I'd regretted it.

                                            With the SanDisk CF Extreme Pro card, all that came to a screeching halt! I've really enjoyed the tremendous increase in performance- well worth the price. There are no "cons", just great performance and an all new appreciation of an old friend.

                                              I use these cards for video (Canon XA25) and photography (Nikon D800) and have found it to be fast, versatile and reliable.

                                                I purchased this memory card to supplement the smaller sizes I already own. I shoot in Raw and wanted a card I could use in one photo shoot without having to change cards halfway through. I also appreciate the faster write speed.
