    5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the price 29 July 2011
    Product Packaging:Amazon Frustration-Free| Size Name:16 GB|Verified Purchase
    I have a Nikon D7000 camera which has twin SHDC slots. I bought a pair of 8gb class 10 Sandisk cards initially but decided I wanted some more capacity and thought I would try a more budget card. The reviews for this one looked promising and they are half the price of the Sandisk equivalent.

    Very much an initial reaction so not tested over time yet (I'll revise the review if anything else crops up) but I would say these are good value for money. Shooting burst mode with the different pairs of cards these are probably fractionally slower than the Sandisk pair but (given the awesome speed in burst mode in the camera) I doubt there would be any real life issues using these and they are half the price of the Sandisk ones. I guess one caveat would be that the camera allows various options of use on the 2nd slot and I always use it as a backup to the first slot. In the end whatever brand is used SHDC cards are not as substantial as compact flash for example. However I'd probably trust these in a single slot usage I guess.

    Re-reading the reviews on these I thought I should test some more so... Definitely slower than Sandisk in burst mode and I take the point that all class 10 cards really should perform in much the same way. Shots a series of images onto each card separately and loaded the on to the computer (via a card reader and Lightroom) and they transferred just fine. If I hit glitches I'll amend the review.

    Additionally - 6 months on
    I've had this pair of cards in my D7000 for about 4 months now with no glitches so far. While maybe not used daily around 200+ shots a week is by no means unusual and I tend to be shooting RAW these days with correspondingly large files and this does not seems to cause any issues either.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Transcend SDHC 8GB 10 class on Canon EOS 550D 29 Jun 2010
    Product Packaging:Standard Packaging| Size Name:8 GB|Verified Purchase
    I'm very pleased with my purchase. I looked around on the web and found this to be the cheapest I found. I decided to go with class 10 to ensure no issues with recording HD video because the mimimum is a class 6. I have used this SD card in my Canon EOS 550D camera for a month taking many pictures and videos with no issues and I'm very pleased.

    Also was posted quickly so overall very pleased.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great memory 28 April 2011
    By rav101
    Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Size Name:32 GB
    I have been using this memory card in a Canon 550D dSLR camera. I plugged it in and it worked from the off. It doesn't seem to keep me waiting around when I am shooting 18mp Raw photos and data transfer off the card also seems very quick. I have not put this through any speed tests so this is purely perception.

    I have definitely noticed a difference over the class 4 SDHC card I'm using in my 10mp panasonic point and shoot. This camera card combo will take photos and store them a lot quicker (taking into account the files are 4-5 times larger) than the panasonic does.

    Definitely recommend as its a quick card and one of the most cost effective memory cards I have seen!!!

    Product Packaging:Standard Packaging| Size Name:16 GB|Verified Purchase
    I have same card and spec made by Panasonic as well as this one and this one works in the same way with no issues for me.There really is not a differance I can spot.
    I use it on a Panasonic HD camcorder with no problems.I would describe my level of useage as home use only I am not a pro and therefore am happy with this cards features.
    Highy recommended

    5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin... well. 27 Mar 2011
    By A. Lis
    Product Packaging:Standard Packaging| Size Name:32 GB|Verified Purchase
    It's a memory card... how much can there be to say?

    Placed into a Canon 60D it merrily keeps up with the full speed of the camera in both high-speed shooting and video, and will cater for just under a thousand full RAW+JPEG shots. What more can one ask for?

    Product Packaging:Standard Packaging|Size Name:8 GB
    I use this card in my 2009 Nikon D60 D-SLR camera. It works beautifully and in terms of capturing continuous photos (without Active D-lighting enabled) it is quick.
    However, when uploading the photos to a PC, it only comes through at about 8.5Mb/s (with Windows 7). This falls shourt of the 10Mbps I was expecting. In fact, I was hoping for more like 15-18Mb/s - but not so.
    However, in context, my Sandisk Extreme III 4Gb 30Mb/s Edition card only uploads at 10Mb/s so it isn't that much slower. Perhaps I should do an experiment with a known upload size to measure actual performance.
    However, this is an indication of the PC's poor card reader and not the card itself. As pointed out by another reviewer, the transfer rate is dictated by the hardware you computer has, and I know this card is quick because of the way it can take large, continuous photos at 3 frames/sec.

    On a recent trip to Brazil, where I photograhed around 1800 medium and high resolution pictures, the complete upload time wasn't a major problem - less than a couple of minutes I think.

    All in all, I'm very pleased with it and I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone. This card is fast and capacity-wise, enormous. 8Gb is good for over 3500 photos at 5.6Mp and Normal compression with a Nikon D60.
