These cards arrived barely two weeks ago and B&H is already sniffing around for a review. A bit soon I think. Anyway, I have these and two other 32GB Lexar cards. So far, in about four months of overall use, I have had no problems. I get nervous about putting as much imagery on one card, but some situations demand more camera time and less card switching. (That's probably just my paranoia rather than actual necessity.) The only gripe I have is that the "free recovery software" could not be downloaded. The access info provided has not worked in a half-dozen attempts. Seems to be a website problem.

I use two of these in my Canon EOS Rebel DSLR mostly to take pictures of people. Typically I snap shots of small groups during school activities, family events, sports events, parties and such. Invariably I want to take multiple shots a second or two apart, and for that purpose this memory card performs poorly. After a very few shots my camera becomes non-responsive for 4 or 5 seconds until it catches up. It actually seems to work better with my older lower rated 300X and 400X memory. I've missed (potentially) good shots because of this. However, I've never had an actual chip failure.

32GB works fine with a D300

By Jim

Comments about Lexar 32GB CompactFlash Memory Card Professional 800x UDMA 7 (2-Pack):

I have used Lexar cards almost exclusively, but was a little concerned after ordering them. I hadn't used a capacity above 8gb before (like some, I'm hesitant to put too many pictures on just one card), but 8gb cards were hard to find and the 32gb duo was a better buy than duo 16gb cards. Also, I hadn't considered if a 32gb card would work in my D300 due to its FAT limitations. I needed more storage though, because of an upcoming trip which will require a vastly higher number of shots to facilitate regular and HDR panoramas. The cards formatted without a hitch and are working fine, and were received in the same week I ordered them. The only problem is when I upgrade my camera, my CF cards won't be used because of the transition to SD and XQD cards.

          I've always used Lexar cards in my Nikons. I have yet to have one fail or corrupt in any way on me (knock on wood...).

          These work in a D700. I have not tried them in anything else so that's my one data point.

            I use these cards in a Nikon D300, if you wonder about compatability with older cameras. They work great and thus far have had no problems. They seem to empty the buffer as fast as anything else I have, so I may be hitting a camera, rather can card, speed limit. I can't speak for newer cameras. Haven't had them long enough to comment about long-term reliability, but I've had a lot of these cards, and they have yet to fail me.

              We load these and the 64GB big brother cards into our Lexar Workflow Hub via USB 3.0 and write to a RAID 5 array. We can import 4 cards at a time and have an entire wedding (4 cameras, full 21MP raw, 4000 photos) import in less than 20 minutes.

                    I use Lexar Professional 32gb CF memory cards in my Canon 7D camera. These cards are very reliable and of good quality. The 32gb capacity is just the right size to use for a weeks vacation taking around 300 shots per day.

                            I'd been using 2 and 4 GB memory cards, but was going to take a weekend photography course. Had thought about buying some more 4 GB cards and B&H staff suggested I buy at least the 16 GB size for the class. So glad I bought this size: I didn't have to worry about changing memory cards in the middle of a shoot all weekend and had space to spare. No more 2 and 4 GB cards for me!

                              I have only positives for this CF card. It is so much easier for me to pack a couple of these when I need to take off on a photo excursion. They perform to perfection AND are so easy to download on my card reader. PLUS, I have never had a Lexar product fail - at least not yet!
