OK for HD Video

It proves to be working for HD video with 5Dmark II.
So far no problems.
Satified with it.
Old technology though.
Overpriced.

Comments about Lexar 16GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

I use this product for All around Photography. Portraits, Sports, Wedding, Landscapes and Night Photography. I like how fast the memory card buffers when I shoot continuously @ 8fps on my Canon 7D. The only thing I don't like about the card is, the buffering is very slow when shooting in BULB mode for 20sec and higher. It will be nice if it buffers 5 seconds or less when shooting fireworks at slow shutter speed of 30sec. or higher in BULB mode.

An excellent choice

Comments about Lexar 16GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

I've been using Lexar CompactFlash Memory Cards for years and their worth the difference in price point. On the very rare occasion when one of these has failed Lexar has eventually replaced it.

Please note that a contributing factor to failure of these cards can be the card reader used. According to Lexar Technical support, "...when you use a Non UDMA 7 reader with a UDMA 7 card it can work however the reader is too slow for the card. The card acting to fast actually forces corruption into the card. Over time weather it be one use or hundreds of uses the card will eventually find the corruption and cause it to have major problems or fail altogether. If you go with a Lexar card reader you will want either our LRW300 (with firmware update from our site) LRW307, LRW400, or the CFR1 from the workflow line...."

Comments about Lexar 16GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

I always like Lexar Compact Flashes. I find them sturdy and that is important in my line of photographic work, nature in very cold places. I cringe when I have to pay for them because they are a little pricey, but I am always happy that I spent that extra when I look at the images I have captured!

      Comments about Lexar 16GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

      I have been a wedding photographer for 15 years and never had a card fail. It happened this weekend with 1200+ images. Corrupt and unreadable. Difficult night doesn't cover it. I was afraid to make the situation worse. A lot of prayer. At noon the next day, I decided to try the software. Within twenty minutes EVERY image plus some from a year and a half ago were restored. Need I say anything more. Only problem was the code in the package of the card did not get me the software free. I had to pay $. to download it. Well, I think with at least ten cards in my home, it should have been free. But the quick and perfect solution...priceless.

                I already have two of these cards and was impressed with them so I ordered two more. They read and write very fast which matters when you're shooting 10 frames per second. Downloading later on the computer is also fast, saving me time at the computer. I have never had one of these cards fail.

                        I am an amateur photographer who takes lots of pictures. All of my photographic equipment comes from B&H.
                        I purchased two 16 gigabyte compact flash cards. They allow me to take over 500 shots at the highest level of quality.
                        I am very pleased with the quality of my purchase and with B&H Photo.

                        First for a trip to Germany and Austria, then for general photography - Photo-Journalist.
                        Info I got from B&H was clear and concise and I was steered in the right direction for my NIKON D700.
                        Second, I read an article in the B&H Newsletter about CF and it confirmed what I had discovered for myself - I needed new CF cards! My pictures are better - needing less Photoshop work.
                        Delivery was expedient (as usual).

                                        I use the high speed flash card for shooting sports and find it records extremely fast. Your special sale price gave me a break on the high costs of good flashcards..
