Five years ago, I bought my first DSLR, an Olympus E-510. Along with the E-510, I bought two cheap Lexar 4gb cards. Even now, about 30,000 shots later, they're still ticking along without errors or any sort of fuss. They've never missed a beat. I've trusted them with days of wildlife shots, airshows and weddings, as well as temperatures at both high and low extremes.

Fast forward to this year, when I decided to purchase a Canon 7D. My experience with Lexar cards led me to this purchase....and it was a good choice.

The card is lightning fast. I've shot a lot in burst mode and have yet to encounter any sort of irritating buffering issues. Sure, a lot of this is probably down to the 7D, but the card has an important part to play......a part that it's played perfectly so far.

For the price, this really is worth a go

I used cheaper brands rated at the same nominal speed or 600x and all have failed in my Canon XF305 video camera. Truly 100% reliable and performs or betters the rated speed on the card.
Have used Lexar cards for many years in my role a s a professional photographer and they have never let me down. The recovery software works well and have used it after accidentally deleting files. The software also works on any drive, even on a PC.

They do cost a bit more but don't be tempted to buy cheaper on the web unless you can trust the seller 100% offers only genuine Lexar goods. Many on other sites are fakes.

Careful where you buy memory - but this is the real deal.

OK so this is not the fastest card out there but it is great value for the price. I use it with a Nikon D800, it will hold 400 images at full Quality RAW settings. I have been using the card for a while now and the speed only becomes an issue when taking a lot of photos in high speed burst mode. I now have 2, they are reliable and fast enough for what I need, very recommended.

I bought this for my 5Diii

I wanted fast speeds but didn't want to pay a huge amount (yet) I felt the 800x was an excellent compromise from the much more expensive 1000x. It is rare I need a fast card as I mainly photograph landscape.

The 5Diii on drive mode (6fps) will output around 144mb-ish a second, a little more than this card can write. none the less i was able to reach 22 / 23 consecutive shots (100iso) before needing to clear the buffer, a considerable improvement. That equates to 3.6 seconds of continuous shooting for 22 shots - a colossal amount of time, for me at least.

I would say this is a great card for casual sports on a camera which outputs similar file size and speed, or for bracketing panoramas etc.

Fast and reliable, I always use Lexar now. It stored 1,500 photos from my Canon 40D camera, nowadays I use the media card as one of my backups.

WOW, this is amazing, I have D300s when usually taking actions shots I was always lucky if I got 6 frames in succession before the camera stalled till it caught up, now with setting on Jpegs I get at least 12 consecutive shots without buffering and if I use bursts of 6 consecutive shots it would always be back at 12 in a couple of seconds. If shooting in RAW this then goes down to 7/8

Bought two of these having not had any problems with Lexar (mind you not had any issues with Sandisk either) and my D800 demanding something other than the Duracell 32Gb cards I already had. These worked great in my D700 so it is a D800 thing.

Fast enough for me and I use it in Lexar's USB3 CF/SD reader.

Use SanDisk SD in the other slot as a backup in the D800.

I use LEXAR Professional CF Cards in my hobby of wildlife photography - mostly on safari in Africa (Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia). The cards cope admirably with the problems of humidity and heat and have proved to be very reliable in this environment which is why I continue to use, and recommend, them.

I only use Lexar cards when my images are important to me. Over the course of capturing, storing and importing countless thousands of images; my Lexar cards have performed perfectly. I can't say the same for other brands.
This card is very fast and exhibits the usual superb Lexar build quality. I have no doubt that it will last for years under my heavy and demanding usage. All my Lexar cards have. None of them have failed and they all continue to function flawlessly.
The included image recovery software, Image Rescue 4, is very good and has recovered images from another brand card where other software was unable to.
These cards are, in my opinion, the best available by a considerable margin and an obvious choice for serious photographers.

I bought this card for my 5d mk III and It works flawlessly.
I've been using lexar Cards for a year now, since I was a long time sandisk user, and I find this 800x version fast and reliable.
My experience with Lexar has been outsanding, so this was my 4th card of that brand.
I'm more a still shooter, and normally take one picture at a time.Nevertheless on some ocassions (mainly in weddings) I need to take pics on burst mode. I've tried the card on burst mode both on 7d and 5d mkIII, and It handles raw files very swiftly, with no delays between shots. For my needs this speed is more than enough, and the card doesn't make me wait while writting.
An excellent choice and I rely on them for weddings, where I cannot take chances.
