SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash is designed for serious professional photographers who demand one of the fastest, most rugged, and most durable memory cards on the market. Professional photographers who work under less than ideal conditions expect more from a flash memory card. More speed. More performance. More reliability. SanDisk's new Extreme III card delivers everything you want plus a whole lot more!
That's because only SanDisk Extreme III memory cards feature innovative ESP Technology for the fastest speeds and highest performance. ESP stands for Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing.
Every SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash card comes with RescuePRO® so you can recover images, documents, mail, video, music just about any digital file, with ease. Built with leading-edge media recovery algorithms, RescuePro lets you preview recoverable data before you try to retrieve it. With RescuePRO's unique recovery algorithm for MPEG audio and MPEG video recovery (MPEG-1/2/3) what you see, and what you hear, is what you can recover.

In the 30D the write speed is amazing, depending on the conditions I can shoot up to the full 30 jpeg frames in one burst until the buffer is full, the speed at which the camera's buffer memory dumps the images to the card is phenomenal. Usually within a couple of seconds the buffer has dumped the jpeg images to the card and is ready to shoot again.
There are faster cards out there, and I've used different brands in the past but for me Sandisk's reliability is the clincher. In the last 3 years I've been using exclusively Sandisk cards I've never had any problems.
I shoot mostly motorsports, action and nature photography where the reliability of your gear can make or break a shot, and in my opinion Sandisk cards are the best there is and I wouldn't use anything else.
I thoroughly reccommend this card more so than anyother, just alone on it performance and reliability, I have not lost one shot and i've taken thousands by now.
It is slightly dear, but if like me you use it on safari's etc, then there is no denying this is the only card to get, I reccommend 2* 2gb CF cards, as the 4gb Card is slightly slower in read/write obviously due to the higher capacity.
The Sandisk has both these qualities in copious amounts!
A 2gb card is hardly classed as large these days but it gives me something in the region of 200 RAW shots on a Canon 400D which is pretty good. Switch to highest quality Jpeg and you're talking about 500+ shots. Have you honestly taken more than 500 shots in one shoot? Me neither. And if you're taking shots on a sub 10 mega pixel camera you'll fit even more on the card! Still - I would love an 8gb card!
Speed is excellent; the extreme III cards are rated at 20mb/sec write speed. Dumping a full buffer from the 400D onto the card takes around 12 seconds - impressive stuff.
The card comes with a disk of image recovery software should your card ever fail and a little pouch that can hold 2 cards - very handy!
If I spent an extra £5 on the Sandisk card over a no-brand alternative, it paid for itself 100x over in that one instance. Superb quality card and great additional benefit.
The speed of the card is great - I shoot in RAW only, on a Canon DSLR (8MP) and the card flies through writing and transferring, using USB 2.0. However, the speed is not a huge issue - the cheap cards are not noticeably slower (what's a few seconds really?), but the fact that "lost" images could be recovered is priceless.
This is an ideal card for a high megapixel camera such as the 400D and as it's a Compact Flash card its easily used in other devices as well as the camera or when it's not in the camera, use it for transferring plain data/photos between computers.
I'd check that price as well, I think you're going to find it hard to beat, Jessops want £100 for this one in the shops!
So If you need a CF card this is a good one to go for..
Go on treat yourself... You know you want to!
I guess all my photos on that card are now lost for good.
Have written to Sandisk with details about date of purchase etc so it will be interesting to see what their response is... I may be mistaken but seemed to remember the guarantee is quite long on these cards.
Fortunately the photos were of the Lake district which I can easily visit again, had this been a wedding or a trip abroad it would have been quite upsetting.
The big decision is do I use lots of these size cards and change, or one bigger card but risk loosing all a shoot if that fails?
