I recently purchased a Samsung GX10 DSLR which came with a rather lacklustre 1gig MMC card. At 17meg a pop shooting in raw (Adobe DNG), I soon realised that I would need a couple of spares. To be honest, I only noticed how slow the supplied card was when I started to use my old generic SD card, which was, to say the least, significantly faster. Having ploughed through endless magazine articles and user reviews, I finally decided to buy the Sandisk III Extreme. As I have just spent £600 on a camera it seemed a bit churlish to scrimp on memory.

The Sandisk III Extreme is an absolutely excellent card. It is super fast, comes with useful file recovery software, a travel case and a lifetime warranty. It really comes into its own in burst mode where there is now hardly any lag between the buffer filling and the files writing to the card. I can see why professional photographers would choose this brand over others. I even noticed a difference in my Lumix compact. In movie mode, it breezed through shooting and playback. Top marks to Sandisk for producing a fantastic memory card.

Naturally Amazon was my first port of call and at £16.99, I decided to buy two. Well, I'd only be wasting money on postage otherwise: Or so I thought.

Sadly, Amazon is not actually the vendor. When you try to purchase the item, you are redirected to `megamemory' or `jollyhappymem' and so on. At £9 postage - and this is in the UK - I'd be jolly happy too! I mean, seriously? I have just sent a 15kg parcel from Birmingham to Glasgow for £13.77. But wait, there is more. If you buy two, `jollyshamelessmem' just go ahead and double the postage!

So, whilst I can unreservedly recommend the Sandisk card, there is a caveat: shop around!

I love the price crash of memory cards, 2GB, super speed, well branded for £15 - brilliant. Anyway why this card? SanDisk make extremely reliable memory, they are one of the founding figures of the SD format, therefore they have clear knowledge and technical expertise. The Extreme 3 range is superb, especially as camera pixel count is getting larger, fast accessable cards are becoming more neccessary. The Pro feature of this card is the enclosed data recovery software, ideal and a piece of mind for those snaps. This is why I only use SanDisk in my cameras.
Their customer service is also very good.

Canon says that the maximum length movie possible in hi res mode is three minutes. Using this card the maximum lenth of movie in hi res mode is just under eighteen minutes, i.e. the maximum recording length the card allows. At the end of this extended movie the camera is busy for what seems like less than a second. That's it.

With the 32mb card that comes with the camera, recording fifteen seconds of hi hres movie meant an awfully long wait while the camera was busy saving it.

Reviews of this card say things like you won't notice much difference in real terms from the extra speed of the card. After my experience i can say there is a massive positive difference in real world shooting and saving of high res movies. Roll on the day when canon release a camera with a high res widescreen mode, i.e. 1280x720 running at 24 / 25 frames a second. This card will probably be able to deal with the extra information and speed.

Even if you are only interested in photographs the speed difference between the supplied Canon card and the extreme 3 is phenomenal.

I cannot recommend this card more highly.

As others have noted, the Amazon fixed postage of £4 + £x/Kg is nonsense now that these products are no longer high value .. not even worth sending them recorded delivery, so it's about 60p, including the padded envelope. Some vendors cut the price on marketplace to match, but most don't .. just go google for a discount memory vendor (and stay AWAY from Ebay, where a bunch of the products are purely fakes).

It's still the card of choice for cameras and the like which can actually use the enhanced speed (some devices are limited regardless of the card speed).

If you measure the speed of this card against other cards, you will notice a marked difference. Using a Nikon D04x, I wrote 42 pictures to the card in one minute as opposed to about 20 from regular cards. That should tell you all you need to know.

A little before christmas I bought the 1gig card at around £60. I was so happy with it in the last month I decided to look for a bigger one as on a raw setting I filled up the 1gb very quickly. I was plesently to suprised to find the same incredibly fast Extreme III card but twice the size and only £15 just 6months after buying the other at £60. The card itself is well worth buying whatever camera you have. Its guarenteed for 10 years with sandisk which is a bonus but also as long as your camera is HCSD compatable it will work with most cameras. You may pay a little more than some of the unbranded cards but its twice as fast at looking through the photos on the back screen and I have not had 1 image lost yet.

I replaced 2 1GB Extreme 3 cards with one of these and I'm glad I did. It works at the same speeds and kept working in very low temperature (32 degrees F) in Northern Ireland and in very hot temperature (100 degrees F) in Florida. It really is an extreme card, I highly recommend this card to anyone who owns a camera using SD and has large file sizes.

Well done Sandisk, I am looking forward to the 4GB version!!
