    Nice SD card for me. I have a dozen or so, and this one is my new monster, enabling me to photograph an entire wedding in RAW mode, as well as JPG, and all the images are on one card. Fast enough to shoot lots of RAW and JPG images without ever hitting the buffer. If shooting sports in RAW, It might have hit the buffer, not sure. I'm a full time professional photographer (trying to get out of the profession) who shoots in RAW mode. Here's a description of RAW vs JPG, (a bonus add-on to the review.) It's free. Tips are okay. ;) "RAW" is simply a format that includes pretty much all the data from the time you push the button. "JPG" (Jpeg) is a processed file format that is compressed as well. RAW files can be quite large, and enable the photographer the option of creating large photos, or making greater corrections after the image is created. Let's say that I photograph a wedding and the indoor church lighting is "Incandescent". My camera is set to "incandescent" and I create wonderful ceremony images. As they kiss, and walk down the aisle, I turn on my flash, and forget to change my "white balance" to "Flash" for their exit. All those JPG images would be VERY blue. With JPG, I have little room to adjust the color back to an accurate color. Had I shot RAW, it would have been a piece of cake. Speaking of cake... Think of JPG as being a baked cake. The camera processes each image you create based on the camera's settings. It processes for: white balance, sharpening, contrast, etc, and bakes it into the finished image. With RAW, if you have your camera set to "Daylight" and accidentally shoot under fluorescent lighting, or incandescent lighting, you can edit the file back to the correct color. Think of it (kinda) as making a cake, but being able to go back and tweak the recipe later (kinda-sorta). Another general thought about SD cards- Be careful with them. The black plastic ribs on the reverse side can get damaged if not careful. * I almost never shoot an image on "Auto-white balance" or "program". Not going into that, but suffice to say, I like to spend time shooting, not editing.

    An SD Card You Can Trust

    Upon purchasing this item i did do a bit of research on it and this is usually the brand of SD card i go for because of my experience with them over the years of being reliable to a great degree. The SD card is wonderful for many cameras and does an excellent job in storing and protecting data and files. I however did notice in newer models such as the canon 80D its performance is AVERAGE, Maybe even a bit above average. This however is due to the fact that the SD card is NOT recommended for the canon 80D because after a lot of research that i have done through the web, The canon 80D needs and or is recommended to have a faster SD Card. For Cameras Such as the canon T3i, T5i, 70D and older. This SD card is great and you should not have a problem. I still highly recommend this card , just NOT for newer models such as the canon 80D

    I was traveling to CES back in January and I knew I would be taking lots of photos and video with my Canon 70D. The problem was I had been using a 16GB memory card and I knew I would need more space to keep from swapping cards out throughout the middle of the day. That's why I went with this card. I needed something that I knew would be able to handle large video files and many of them. The card can handle the video taken with a DSLR and does a wonderful job of it. If you have issues with finding a card that will allow your camera to record more then a few seconds of video this would be the SD card you need. I'm happy with it.

    Been using SanDisk memory products for years, and this 128gb SD continues the company's tradition of quality, speedy products. I use these cards with mirrorless digital cameras; have yet to have a failure (even after trips through the washer/dryer), and haven't ever been disappointed by their card's ability to keep up with high speed photo bursts, even in uncompressed raw format. Definitely recommend, but don't forget that Best Buy price matches other companies, to ensure the best value for your $$.

    Incredible card for 4K video capture!

    I used this card on vacation to capture all my video footage in 4K and it did so beautifully! I had over 4 hours available on it which I only managed to shoot about half of. The card never gave me problems, but left me with stunning, colorful, detailed video. No problems in writing or reading capabilities at all. I highly recommend this card to those serious about capturing the best video.

    this card is awesome for aux storage on mac

    macuser

    it is marked and 90MB/s and i get 88MB/s read and 60MB/s write on Mac Sierra. awesome. can boot from it. i installed High Sierra on it as a boot device. going to try to see how usable it is soon. seems ok so far. i think u have to look for the C10 label but i am not sure. look for my review on the Extreme Pro 280MB/s / 64GB which is advertised much faster than this card (and more $) but is much slower than this card, in use, on a farily modern Mac. that 280MB/s number may be like burst or something, i dont know...

    This card is all that I needed and more. I've used in my Nikon D7100 and my Lumix GH3, for stills and video. Works great, and speeds are very good.I shoot RAW, and haven't yet run into a full buffer. (I'm more of a sniper, and not a machine gun shooter). With memory getting so cheap, I may just use them once, burn to a backup drive, and file them away, instead of burning a DVD. The Best Buy staff were great, and I didn't have to wait days for some out of state "Zoned" out company to get it to me. In my opinion, customer service, and the ability to get my questions answered are paramount.

    Will not work in Sony Alpha 7 cameras (Slot 1)

    There are overwhelming number of customer reports that these SD cards will not work in Slot 1 of Sony Alpha 7iii and Alpha 7Riii cameras. I bought mine to use in my new a7iii only to discover this problem.I can use it in slot 2 of the camera which is where it is. I immediately ordered a Sony SD card to put in slot 1. It is likely that cards made by other manufacturers other than SanDisk will also work. This seems to be unique to this line of SanDisk cards regardless of capacity.

    Horrible Waste of Money

    No, no way. Scenario: Your on the last day of your two-month trip to the Bahamas. It is very humid in your hotel room while your by the pool. You just happened to leave your camera and 128GB SD card inside of the room, which has over 5,000 pictures still on it (You did not download them to your computer) The dampness gets to your memory card and POOF! The SD card is ruined and all of your pictures as well. This is why I would prefer to buy two 8GB SD cards instead of 1 16GB SD card. If one is ruined, you still have some left on the other card. This memory card is a COMPLETE waste of money. Seriously Best Buy?! You go to CES and you choose to sell this?!

    I have a new 4k camcorder, and I video tape long games. Before when I would record the games with a smaller disk, I would have to take the disk out. Remember which one it is to edit it for the game. It is nice being able to just have one disk for the full game. Also it is higher quality, so I can use it for high definition, speed games. Bad, is that it may not perform as well for 4k quality fast motion. Sitting still it works fine, but for faster action, it is a bit choppy.

    4K all day long

    I recently did a long video shoot where I was responsible for getting over 2 hours worth of 4K (@ 100Mbps) video. The card ran out early because I had failed to empty about 20GB of video data before the shoot, but if I had an empty card it would have lasted for the entire shoot. I always shoot with a spare camera so it wasn't a problem running out of room, and it was my own fault. These cards keep up with 4K video and never miss a beat!

    I've used this card for over a year now and it still works. There have been times when I need to format it or I can't take photos because the camera doesn't acknowledge it. That is very inconvenient, but all in all its been withstanding time pretty well. The card is physically in good condition. I am a photographer and use it constantly. I put it in and out of the camera and my iMac.

    It works in my camcorder. It works in my MacBook Pro -- but only because I don't have one of the new ones. :-) It reads and writes fast enough, so what's not to like? Best Buy should ask me to review it in several years. If my data is intact it'll still be a 5, else it'll become a 0. But by then this memory card probably won't be made anymore, so there'd be no point. Technology… This memory card seems really good, but I'm not going to trust storing my data on any single piece of media. Duh.

    Necessary for 4k

    So 4k recording is one of those things where you might be able to get through with an older card but that's only because some devices record at HD or 2k and then upscale it. If you're using a real 4k or 6k recorder then something this fast is necessary, specially if you want smooth previews. 128 GB gives you a lot of room to record and the 90 MB/s write speeds keep you stutter free

    The 128gb card works great in my HDSLR video/camera. If you shoot video with your digital camera this memory card will allow you to do so for a lot longer than anything else on the market. This is as big as these memory cards get with out being crazy expensive. When you shoot high bitrate you appreciate the speeds this card offers. Sandisk is a reliable brand-name and I have no worries about the durability of this product. I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

    Looked at reviews online about this card and some were right. Depending on what camera you want to use it with, it may not work. New and old technologies sometimes don't get along. Shot a wedding and went to back up the images, and I got a message on the computer to format the card. Looked online for solutions, but in the end I tried using my newer computer at home and thankfully it worked. Recommend this card if you have newer technologies and format before every use!

    Great inexpensive high capacity sd card

    I use this card in my notebook computer instead of a camera. It is very fast (about the same as a good quality usb 3.0 flashdrive). I just leave it in my card slot and use it for extra capacity to keep from filling up the hard drive on my laptop. I have had no problems after about a month of solid use. I am very pleased with it. There are SD cards of the same capacity (128GB) that are faster, but they cost two to three times more. This is a great inexpensive alternative!

    Great UHS - I SD Card

    These are prob the best SD Cards for photography at the moment when it comes to price:performance. A UHS - II card would be miles faster but they are much more expensive and not supported in the camera we use. We have a D750 and we can burst shoot all day long with no hangups. Card also works great for 1080p 60fps. Can't vouch for 4k bc my camera doesn't do 4k. We have 3 of these cards - done several weddings on each - 0 issues.

    The SandDisk Extreme 128 GB memory card gives me the speed and capacity that I require in my work as a photographer. It goes along way to giving me the peace of mind I need when I am on an extended photo shot and don’t have worry about my card filling up unexpectedly. The memory card is durable and can stand up to a wide verity of conditions

    I’m using this SD card on my MacBook Pro (when the MacBook still had an access port for these cards) to store the Sound Library files on for Logic Pro (over 40 GB) and have no issues at all doing that. The read and write access times are fast enough to keep up with my work and the big plus is I free up hard drive space on the internal drive of the computer.
