    SanDisk 8GB Reviews

    8GB CompactFlash Memory Card Extreme 400x UDMA is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 774.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Dependable I use the Extreme Compact Flash in my Canon 5D Mark II. I would not use any other brand because my work cannot be redone. I am a wedding photographer and been using SanDisk for over 5 years and none of my cards have ever failed. I just follow three simple rules. 1.) Never erase or move photos from the card, only copy. 2.) Only format the card on the camera, not on a PC or MAC.. 3.) If dropped do not use on critical work because they may fail the card. These cards seem to flawless (some of mine have over a million image taken on them) if properly used and maintained.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Picked this up as a backup card. Shoot mostly to a Hoodman RAW card, then switch out of paranoia so some shots are on a different card. Whie you double chances of having trouble, you don't lose everything if there is trouble. Copied the files to a laptop while keeping the originals on the cards during the shoot which makes yet another backup and also lets you know the files are good. Saving raw and jpeg from the camera, the card write time doesn't seem to get in the way - but I don't shoot video so I don't demand that much constant write speed. It works as I need it to without a hitch - while that's not asking for much, it is everything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I needed another CF card and wanted a quality card. I've always used Sandisk Extreme cards in the past and have never had a problem whether I'm shooting in below freezing temps or over 100 degree temps. This Extreme card is rated at 60MB/S, which is faster than my previous one. Can't really tell the difference in the camera, but it does transfer slightly faster when copying to my computer via a card reader. It would be nice if the larger 16GB Extreme wasn't so expensive, which is why I got this 8GB, but I'd rather pay more for higher quality than getting a cheaper model and have too slow of a card or risk loosing images due to poor quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable and fast I use these cards for portraits, family portraits, senior photos, weddings, and pets plus working in a studio that I am learning to do fashion photography. I first started off with a 16 GB cards and decided to invest and a few more and a few 8 GB and I could not be any more happy with them. I have loved them from the start and will keep loving them! They are very capable of shooting fast inside and out, and even with strobes going, and I've had 5 going at once and the cared never failed me. I would definitely recommend this for others whether you are shooting fast or casual, these are able to keep up and have lots of space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and Efficient I've seen lesser memory cards go bad before, and take a lot of people's cherished content with them. Doing pro or even semi-pro photo work, you can't afford to have that happen. This card trades off between reasonable capacity, write performance (heavy burst usage especially), and cost in a great sweet spot. They're affordable enough to pick up more of them as jobs warrant, reliable enough to be used for long-term storage or frequently re-used as working cards. I also use them for personal photos. I will not *need* to buy more of these, because the ones I've already purchased are serving me well - but I *will* buy more of them for exactly the same reason.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance I bought this memory card for my 7D. I had been using a Sandisk card with 4gb and a 30mb transfer rate (which works well), shooting RAW. After popping in this card I noticed a slight increase in speed for the shot to come up on the review screen. Can't wait to try it with high continuous mode shooting. I mainly bought it for increased capacity. After formatting the card, my 7D reports 295 pic capacity with RAW (18mp), 431 with Med Raw (10mp), and 999 (presumably more than than) with large jpg. I'be never had an issue with a Sandisk card with 2 different cameras so I'm sold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the Market I've been using SanDisk memory cards to photograph wildlife for over a decade. I shoot pix everyday and when I take extended trips to Yellowstone, I'll easily go through 20+ SanDisk cards between my three DSLR cameras. Believe it or not, I have never had a single glitch with any of my SanDisk cards. As a pro, I depend on a card's reliability and fast read/write speed so I don't miss any shots when I'm shooting high-burst, fast-paced wildlife behavior sequences. As far as I'm concerned, SanDisk cards are tops and I won't use anything else. If you're serious about your wildlife photography, then you owe it to yourself to use a high quality, fast read/write CF memory card like the SanDisk CF Extreme 400x UDMA memory card.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and big! When I upgraded from a Canon 20D to a 7D, I needed more storage media than my few 2GB cards. I chose this card because I trust Sandisk to provide a quality product and it is big enough to hold several hundred full RAW images on the 7D. I chose the Extreme version over the ExtremePro because I don't need the additional speed that the Pro version provides so it was more cost effective to get the regular Extreme version.
