For those working in high-performance industries such as broadcasting, cinema, and photography, the 128GB Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 Memory Card from SanDisk combines the speed, capacity, and performance needed to record uninterrupted DCI 4K video, which has a resolution of 4096 x 2160 and a 17:9 aspect ratio.

SanDisk 128GB CFast 2.0 Reviews
DOESN'T work with Arri Amira
This is a good card and so far has had no problems in my Red Komodo at 6k resolutions. I was hoping it would work in the Arri Amira too since I noticed other reviewers mentioned it worked in the Alexa Mini, but it didn't work in my Amira... got a media not supported error. I suspect this is due to an Arri software lockout so they can get you to buy the Arri branded cards, rather than a problem with this card, but either way, the Amira wouldn't accept the card. But luckily, I mainly purchased this for the Komodo, so all seems good there.
Dependable as always
There is a reason SanDisk is almost a standard. Dependable and it works as advertised.
Works great with Komodo
Have this one and a 256GB - both work great without any issues in my RED Komodo. Planning on getting at least 2 more 512GB's.
Did not work with a Canon XC-15
In searching for compatible CFast cards for a newly purchased Canon XC-15 this card was included in the list so we bought a couple of them. After it arrived I attempted to initialize it in camera for some test shots and found that the camera would not recognize the CFast card. It blinked and attempted to but would give an error. I then tried reformatting the card on a Windows machine just to have a fresh starting place. I used the SanDisk pro CFast reader in hopes of giving it the best chances, but the computer had a hard time mounting it. After unplugging and replugging it finally mounted. Once mounted I performed a full reformatting of the card (unchecked the Quick Format button). We then inserted the card back into the XC-15 and it was then recognized! We allowed the camera to initialize the card. After that I could take the card in and out of the camera and it loaded each time. Seemed like good news. But after shooting about 20 minutes worth of test shots I found I could not get the footage off the card. It once again would not mount on the PC easily. After some repeated tries it did. But every time I attempted to 1. copy the files off the card, 2. import the files using Adobe Premiere, 3. Save a backup using Canon's own utility software--all 3 attempts came back with some sort of error. The footage was lost so it was a no-go to shoot any real events with it. I could play the test footage for about 5 minutes inside the Canon Utility but it would never go past a certain point and I could not get the footage off the card. So I had to shoot an important event using the SD card which by design does not record in 4K video like the Canon XF-400 will. I'll need to find out if there are CFast cards that are known to work seamlessly with this model (XC-15) and why this one is advertised on B&H as being compatible. Note: we bought 2 cards and each performed the same as the description above.
Solid memory cards for my C300 mark ii
I rely on SanDisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0 cards in both my C300 mark ii cameras, for work and pro bono video work. I've never had an issue with them.
This card works with my URSA
This card works well with my Blk magic URSA camera
So far so good
Bought these as they are the ARRI approved memories for Alexa Mini. Tested them and they work well with both pro res and Arri Raw. Look forward to taking them out on the field and seeing how they perform after a few uses.
Use them all the time, never had an issue.
