I use thiese in my 1DMIV and 5DMII
Video and stills - the buffer light hardly comes on.Yes you can buy San-disc or lexar at triple the price tag but why would you.I have used Transcend cards for 2 years now and love them.Not to mention they are equiped with error write protection.It is imposible to lock up one of thiese becouse the file didn't write.
The 400x and 600x are in my opinion the best CF cards in the world as of the year 2010 - period.

The first 2 cards and the last time I will ever consider buying from "Transcend". Worst experience ever! I got 2 and initial test (random few shots of photo and several minutes of video) works fine. I put on a family event on a sunday party to test it out before a actual job (thanks god) for video and photo. Only 1 retain the photo and video, the other shows up empty when i put it in the computer. I give it 1 start for their pricing effort. Stick with sandisk and save your behind!

Two Cards died within the course of a week--never again

Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

My news crew just had to eat and reshoot a half dozen news pieces due to the failure of TWO Transcend 64GB 400X cards within the space of a week. Saving a few bucks just isn't worth the risk. Never again...

I won't buy Transcend anymore

      Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

      I bought 2, because of the price. After about 1 year of using it on my D800 and lately on the D810, they stopped working. I can shoot about 50 photos, and then the camera can't write on the card anymore and displays an error message. The photos already shot are usable though.
      The same thing happens with my D700. I don't have this issue with my other cards, so it's not a camera problem.

        Use this in my Sony HVR-MRC1 to capture video digitally with an older Sony HVR-V1U HDV tape based camera. I get great storage capacity with this however, this is my second one - replacing the first one due to failure after only a few uses. Not sure what happened, but I recorded media, but it would not mount on any computer I tried so the footage was lost. All in all, I'm not sure about durability yet.

        Great card for shooting video

        By John

        from Indianapolis

        Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

        I have a Sony Z7U video camera. It's an older camera but when I bought it the industry was moving between tape and cards. Today shooting on tape is really not called for. The Z7U is still a great camera but only has an external card recorder with one slot. So when buying a card I need to make sure it is a quality card. For that reason I shoot on Transcend cards. They have never let me down.

        Not fast enough for Nikon D800

          Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

          I have been using this card with Nikon D800 for 3 month and it does the job, but every 50-100 shots my D800 "freezes" while writing onto the card for 15-30 seconds. You can take more pictures while the camera is busy writing, but you can't review them until it finishes and that is very annoying. This happens even at Medium resolution! No errors so far. That's why I gave it 3 stars.

              I use this for DSLR video on a 7D. I have several transcend cards of various sizes and have never had a problem with any of them. I mostly shoot corporate video. It's nice to have a couple of these 64GB if you are shooting a ton of video in a day.

                              I use this to capture still photographs and it works like a charm. Actually, this is my second Transcend card, my first one was a 32GB and I wanted to get a larger capacity for uninterrupted shooting. The 32GB one sits in the box as a spare now. I am not concerned with the speed so long as it keeps up with my shooting, which this card does with no problem at all.

                                Works well, although at 400X it still bottlenecks the D800E when shooting at 4fps (shooting RAW only or JPEG only enables faster performance, as even having the JPEG's going to an SDHC card will still slow write speed), as the D800 series can handle up to UDMA 7.

                                When transferring photos via card reader, you should get faster speeds via USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0.

                                Comments about Transcend 64GB CompactFlash Memory Card 400x UDMA:

                                Bought 6 of these cards for my Canon XF-305 video cameras about 2 years ago and they work awesome! Buying 12 more for my conferences this year!
