    16GB Extreme SDHC Memory Card is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 316.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I used to have to use more than one card on a trip. When I uploaded them to my computer and combined the images into one file, the automatic numbering of the images from different cards caused conflicts because more than one image would have the same number. This made archiving images to discs in sequence a nightmare. I often had to rename all images to keep them in order when my program sorted them. Having a memory card large enough for them all kept them in order and saved me a lot of time. Not to mention the ease of use with the HIGH read/write speed. I think I may have purchased my last memory card. It's definitely worth the money !!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super memory card 16 GB extreme SDHC memory card is so awesome because Sandisk is trust band. I work at a camera shop and never see customers come in with angry their Sandisk memory cards. I bought it for my canon t2i and worked like champion. I don't worry about chopping video or memory size for photos and videos. I can switch video, raw and super jpg anytime without check size because my single battery would drain out before my memory card runs out. I think it is too fast because my card reader could not keep up my memory card's speed. I can say it is very fast, 16GB and reliable. And B&H offers good price for this memory card

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great with the Sony EX1 While I do use this with my Canon 1d Mark II N, I mainly use two of these cards with the Sony PMW-EX1. Along with Kensington Expresscard adapters for $40 a piece, (which Sony has gone to great lengths to destroy and extinct) I can now get 16gb of video for $ versus paying $800 for Sony's way overpriced SXS 16gb card. I can't wait till SanDisk comes out with a 32gb SD! While I can't use the 60p over/under cranking (due to bandwidth limitations) I can still enjoy hours of video for much cheaper.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best value for SxS Replacement I use this card with the MxR EFilms SxS SD card adapter. I've found that this Extreme III card works no better than the cheaper videoHD 16GB SD card also from SanDisk. I thought that upgrading from a class 6 card to a class 10 card might allow me to get slow-motion with an SD adapter on the Sony EX3 camcorder, but it wasn't the case. This Extreme III card doesn't allow slow-motion in the SD adapters. Nor does this Extreme III card offload any faster onto a harddrive than the videoHD Class 6 version. In short, this Extreme III card is perfectly fine and works and is dependable, but just isn't the best value if you're looking for media for a Sony EX1 or EX3 Sxs Card replacement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, Reliable Cards I bought the Extreme III 16gb cards for my 1DIII and 1DsIII bodies from Canon. Generally I've used the SD card slot in those bodies as a bit of an afterthought, relying instead on CF cards. However, with an upcoming trip to the Antarctic, I want to have as much memory on board as possible, to avoid having to open the camera in a harsh environment. As a run up to the trip, I've used the cameras outdoors in the Nova Scotia winter, and the cards have performed very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast SDHC Card for Canon XSI I use in Canon XSI. Camera is set to save jpg and RAW photos. The first SD card I purchased on price caused me to get busy light very often while shooting multiple shots quickly. I could only shoot one or two then wait for the busy signal to go away. This card allows me to shoot several shots quickly before getting the busy signal. I am very happy with this card.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make no bones, this is a great card Just finished shooting a wedding with this card. If you capture a lot of candids in RAW, 16GB likely won't be enough. I figure a minimum of 20GB or more, would suffice when shooting all day long. Speedwise, the Sandisk 16GB Extreme III 30MB/s Edition was more than adequate for my needs. Along with the lifetime warranty, it's almost perfect in every way except for one thing: the price. Now mind you, the price is not over-the-top. For its professional build quality, I think the card is pretty fairly priced. It's simply that, if you can take a little less speed for half the price, the Sandisk 16GB Ultra II may fill your needs with the same professional quality as its speedier brother. But for scenarios that require speed (like sports) or cameras that can take advantage of it, the Sandisk Extreme III is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid card, even for burst shooting Purchased this card for use with an advanced point-and-shoot. It has worked quite well, even in some burst mode shooting with RAW files. Have had no file corruption issues. Definitely a good card for a variety of photographers.
