Product Description

Transcend 400x CompactFlash Card

Aimed at professional photographers, Transcend's 400x CompactFlash cards feature high-speed transfer rates up to 90MB/s read and 60MB/s write, ensuring maximum performance when used with cutting-edge digital camera equipment.

400x Transfer Performance

Fully compliant with CompactFlash revision 6.0, Transcend's "Premium" series, 400x CompactFlash cards operate in Ultra DMA (UDMA) transfer mode 7. As a result, a top-end DSLR camera, equipped with a 400x CF card, responds quickly, which is especially important during fast-action burst mode shooting.

Transcend's 400x CompactFlash cards exceed the demands of professional photography
Video Performance Guarantee

The video performance guarantee (VPG-20) helps ensure that Transcend 400x CompactFlash cards are capable of constant video recording at 20MB/s without dropping frames. The ultimate class-leading storage for ultra-high resolution Full-HD, 3D, and even 4K UHDTV (2160p) video recording, these cards deliver smooth, professional videos.

Storage to Meet Your Needs

Available in a range of capacities (8GB to 64GB), Transcend's 400x CF cards provide plenty of storage space for a full day's worth of images, eliminating the need to pause and switch memory cards during extended photo shoots. Each 64GB card can store more than 15,000 high-resolution digital photos or 4,000+ RAW image files.

Compatibility and Post-Production Efficiency

The versatile 400x CF card is developed to work across a wide range of CompactFlash compatible devices, including high-end DSLRs, hybrid cameras and Full HD camcorders. When back at the studio, 400x CF cards help increase post-production efficiency with incredible read speeds, which allow you to transfer images from card to computer in a matter of seconds.

RecoveRx Software

With a purchase of Transcend 400x CF cards, you can download RecoveRx software for free. This user-friendly application allows you to conduct an in-depth search within your storage device for traces of erased files to be recovered.

Built-In Error Correction Code (ECC)

Transcend's 400x CF cards are manufactured using premium quality toggle mode NAND Flash memory chips to ensure long-life durability. In addition, each card contains built-in ECC technology for detecting and correcting errors during data transfer.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Card for the money. 31 Aug 2010
    Size Name:32GB|Verified Purchase
    Great value UDMA CF card for higher end cameras, both DSLR and some camcorders. On my Canon 7D I never seem to hit the buffer limit even shooting full RAW at 8fps. On my Canon 1DMKIII's I have Transcend UDMA 400x cards fitted too - reliable, fast - great value.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic performance on a budget 8 Jan 2011
    Size Name:32GB|Verified Purchase
    I purchased three of these for professional HD video use with a device called a Convergent Design Nanoflash. This is essentially a Compact Flash drive which allows the recording of very high bitrate video and audio via the HDSDI connector on broadcast/professional camcorders. In this case (in case you know about this stuff) I am recording the output of a Sony EX3 at 50 mb/s. I contacted Convergent Design before buying these to check compatibility since they are fairly new to market and not listed in the Nanoflash's manual. They informed me that Transcend 400X cards were fine and I don't seem to have proven them wrong. So far, I've just conducted a few tests and all seems well. The acid test will come when I rely upon them for a real shoot. They are virtually half the price of the equivalent Sandisk cards so it's a very worthwhile saving. Good luck!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Tanscend 32gb UDMA Compact Flash card 25 Mar 2010
    Size Name:32GB
    Card arrived and without delay installed it in my Olympus E-3. Set it up for continous pictures saving as RAW. Blisteringly fast saving and didn't seem to hesitate even with bursts of 50 pictures or more.
    No more excuses for missing the moment.

    Would have gone with Sandisk but now I probably wouldn't. Too expensive and very little to gain.Transcend 32 GB 400x CompactFlash Memory Card TS32GCF400

    2.0 out of 5 stars Failed within a month 12 Nov 2011
    By Kermit
    Size Name:32GB|Verified Purchase
    I really don't like giving negative reviews but think it's justified in this case. I bought this card last month (Nov '11) and used it on a commercial studio shoot the following week. Out of approx. 300 images shot, 3 were unreadable on importing to Lightroom. This was enough to make me nervous because I can't afford to loose clients images. Not because of the hassle of retaking, but because my clients tend to be on tight magazine deadlines and simply don't have time to reshoot - even at my expense. However, I gave the card a fresh format and another chance. A location shoot in Wales went well (5D mk2). It was a personal stock project so I thought I'd take the chance. All the images were fine. So, earlier this week, I tried to use it on a dance performance shoot for a client - the card failed straight away. My camera (1D mk3) reported a card error and I'm not prepared to attempt using it again. Two failures is enough for me to switch straight back to Sandisk which I've always used in the past with zero problems.

    I'm not sure if this review is helpful or not but it's an honest view. Maybe I just got a bad card. I've got three 16GB Transcend cards which are fine. But this experience is enough to persuade me to spend the extra and switch back to Sandisk in future.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great card at a great price 30 July 2012
    By Lewis
    Size Name:32GB|Verified Purchase
    I used this for my first every wedding shooting at 21 mega pixel in raw format. It didn't let me down.
    I then used it a few days afterwards for another shoot and filled the card with no problems at all.

    At first I was a little reluctant to purchasing this card and did buy a sandisk extreme for my main card. I then bought it anyway as it got mainly good reviews and the high speed and capacity came at a bargain price. It performs just as well as my sandisk extreme and I am very pleased with it, in fact I am just about to purchase my second.

    Great card at a great price and comes with a free download of data recovery software in case something happens.

    Yes, I would recommend it!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Definetly a card of choice for professional use 22 Jan 2010
    By R. Patel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Size Name:64GB
    I've been using my EOS 7D for a few months now and I've been taking RAW images of size 5184 x 3456
    so, I need a card that can keep up the pace and also hold the storage when on holiday and taking continous shots. Also, the 7D can take HD movies(which I may add by saying the pictures are brilliant for a camera).

    Anyway, this card has stood the elements, I've used this card in blistering heat, i.e. Sahara desert where temperatures in the bag reached 55C+ and also on the Swiss Alps where it reached -12C where I was staying for 2 days. The card kept up and never lost a shot I was shooting at roughly 8fps RAW images and I just kept going. A beauty. I usually stick to SANDISK Pro cards, but this is more than what I require. If anything this is just as good as a Sandisk, but cheaper. I also have Sandisk cards with me albeit they are 16gb cards, this was my first 64gb CF card as I got fed up of changing cards, especially as the last time I missed a key moment in Masai Mara(Kenya).

    For the price the card performs flawlessly. Also, all my images were intact and I never lost a image. The card has a limited lifetime guarantee. I've had this card for 3months now and it's still going strong and I take allot of pictures believe me you'd be shocked(albeit 40% I end up removing, but thats photography for you).

    Thoroughy reccommend this card and at this price from Amazon.co.uk you be mad not to pick one up. This card is aimed for the semi-professional and professionals out there.
