5.0 out of 5 stars Great card 10 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase
I use this card with a Canon EOS 40D, and find it to be an ideal card for that camera. Has been completely reliable, and is just the right capacity at 8GB.

The EOS 40D shows that 488 exposures can be stored, when using RAW + Large JPEG mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast with lots of memory... 21 Nov 2008
By Romek
I have the Canon 350D and this CF card allows me to take plenty of JPG+RAW pics. It is also much faster then my older 4GB 100x card. Very happy with the speed, size and quality.

Bought for use with Olympus E510. Works beautifully, and data transfer to PC through compatible card-reader is reassuringly fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sandisk Extreme III 8mb card 23 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase
Using the card with a Canon EOS40D on RAW. Sandisk cards are reliable - I have used them for over 7 years - and these cope perfectly adequately in read/write speed on the EOS40D. I also have an Extreme IV and it is no different on this camera so why waste money on the extra performance if you do not need it?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the fastest card around 30 Sep 2008
By Alex
Verified Purchase
I bought one for my Olympus E-510.
I set the camera to shot RAW+High quality JPEG at the same time and the card does more than 1 fps so the card does the job as it should.
Do not bother to buy extreme IV as it would be little difference in speed (only in price is a big one :)

I would expect these to do the job, and of course they do. My comment is on the vendor (at the time of writing Digizouk). Beware the shipping prices; 4.50 each. They state in their confirmation email this is fixed by Amazon but Amazon do not regulate Marketplace shipping costs. I can understand the cost if two large, dissimilar items requiring picking and packing, but not 2 CF cards that can fit in an A5 jiffy. Amazon have suggested I negotiate with Digizouk while they investidate their claim that Amazon are forcing the shipping cost. So far Digizouk have refused to respond to any communication execept with automated emails.

Having said that the product is very very cheap even with the silly shipping costs so if you don't mind being ripped off, buy them of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash 8GB Memory Card 23 Feb 2009
As a professional photographer for over 40 years, and 10 years using digital, I cannot take the risk of a memory card letting me down, so I use SanDisk Extreme 111 cards knowing they will get the job done with no problems. 10 out of 10 and would highly recommend to all photographers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holds about 294 RAW files from 5D MkII 31 Oct 2009
By Ram
Which is enough for most people with the 5D MkII. You don't want to go up to 16GB IMHO for the safety aspect in case the card does go bad. I have 8 of these and one of them did go bad. Luckily only 8 pics were unrecoverable.

Saves very quick for the 5D MkII too. There is a slight lag when on continuous shot mode, though it is trying to save RAW files that can be over 30MB themselves.
