very bad quality. what you see is not what you get. have a look before damaging your DSLR
on 11 November 2014
I posted some pictures where I compare the card with a standard SanDisk CF-I model.. the thickness in size between CF_I and CF-II should be the only measurement to concern you in choosing between the two cards.The only physical difference between the two types is that Type I devices are 3.3 mm thick while Type II devices are 5 mm thick.
To me 10.00 £ Sterling's to buy a misshaped piece of tech that barely fits with my DSLR it is total deceit. (SONY alpha takes both CFI+CFII formats !!).
Very deceitful photos don't portrait the actual product.
The packaging differs as well. As I said the one in the seller page convey a overall quality feel that you wont get with the card you receive in the post; see cropped image. I asked the seller to review his polished picture.
I would never use this adapter let alone inside my DSLR and definitely not in an expensive medium-format camera as preposterously portrayed as "awesome" on the packaging of the adapter in the seller photo.
In the review photos you can see first a crop of the seller image, to show you the contrast in quality and against that sample are images of the real adapter, measured against a SandDisk card that I own; both cards are standing on an perfectly even surface. As I said the depth isn't an issue, as it goes, CF-II cards are "fatter" but you can notice the difference in height. So when you will try to fit the adapter inside your camera socket it will protrude slightly causing pressures and frictions to your DSLR plastics and socket.
