A commercial photographers' opinion - a reliable card with decent speeds
on 10 June 2016
I have had these cards for about a year now, using them to shoot RAW photographs on my full frame Canon 6D DSLRs. I am a wedding and commercial photographer so these cards regularly get pushed all day long and nothing is more important to me then reliability..
Other SD cards that I have used by some of the other mainstream manufacturers have died on me in testing, however I haven't had a single problem with my Sandisk Extreme SD cards. They aren't the fastest in the world but they are faster then most and have never slowed down my shooting (my camera never has to wait around for these cards to catch up). I haven’t tried shooting video with them though, so couldn’t comment on how they perform with large movie files.
The cards come with the pro version of SanDisk’s recovery software, but thankfully I have never had to use it. As you will see from the attached speed test, these cards get just over 45mbps read speed and just under 40mbps write speed. For shooting RAW photography, these cards are fantastic. They are reliable with a decent speed. If you have any questions about these cards, please feel free to leave a comment.
