    Great Value CF Card BUT...

    CF cards were always on my wish list, and I was fortunate enough to buy them this past month. And sure enough, it has been performing great so far. Not only it is fast, but reliable. Only down side might be having to use CF card reader to move pictures. If you accidentally plug the CF Card into the card reader incorrectly, and try to force it to go in, it one of the metal reader thingy from the reader could get stuck in the CF card and might mess with image transfer. So be careful.

    Honestly, I have only had 16 GB and 32 GB CF’s in the past and have 64 GB is a game changer. My girlfriend always leaves her photos on the camera so I play the classic game of deleting a few, taking a few, and so on. I would highly recommend this for anyone thag is serious about their photography and doesn’t want to find themselves in a pinch.

    We bought this for my son's camera at the last minute before heading out on a trip. The memory card worked flawlessly on the trip. Decent amount of storage, and fast enough, too. We really liked being able to order online and pick it up at Best Buy same day. We almost overlooked this, and didn't have time for shipping. Ordering online for in-store pickup allowed us to grab this at the last minute before the trip.

    I take a lot of pictures. I have shot weddings and am the family photographer when we go on vacation. I have a Canon Mark lll 5D and shoot in RAW. The picture files can be huge . We are going to Europe this summer and I don't want to worry about filling up my camera card. It was a good price for a lot of space. I've had good luck with SanDisk and Lexar. The San Disk was cheaper at the time of purchase so I went with it.

    I like it. I've been using 16 and 32 gig compact flash cards up to now and when I'm involved in a long shoot it's a HUGE relief to know that after several hundred images I STILL have over half a card available. It's a problem I have, I get nervous when I see the available space get smaller and smaller. It does process the image very quickly and I've been very happy with it. I also bought it heavily discounted as a Deal of the Day.

    Large Card for My Camera

    This is an older camera card, but I have an older camera that still works great. Since becoming a nature photographer, specifically sunsets, I needed card space, and previously didn't have a card larger than 4K. To get a card this big for a really small price was outstanding, allowing me to take photos of family, nature, and tourist attractions without having to frequently take time to upload them off the camera.

    I have used other (lower volume cards) like this one since I first got my camera. With this card, it will be a long time before I have to worry about running out of room. The only problem I see, is that searching for a picture could take some time. But no more than looking through half a dozen other cards. I've been looking at this card for a couple years now. With the current drop in price, it was time to buy.

    When I bought the camera I thought that a regular memory card would work, absolutely glad that I was wrong!! The SanDisk - Extreme 64GB CompactFlash (CF) Memory Card compliments my photography skills... no my mistake... it takes my skills to the next level; it makes me looks like a professional! I'm hyped! And as always the price at my Best Buy was an added plus. Great job SanDisk.

    This is one of the item that are hard to find now a days\, only BestBuy has it when I needed, at best price, local for quick pick up. I bought this just for the RIO KARMA upgrade from platter HD! Work very well, now the unit boot in milliseconds, plenty of storage for the music collections. 6th upgrade.

    I was looking to buy a faster card when I purchased my camera, but this was the fastest card they had in stock and I really needed a card that day. I have to say that this card is impressive. Its transfer rate is slightly slower than the professional version, but I haven't experienced any buffering problems, even when shooting at ten frames per second.

    The person that showed me the card, after asking for it’s location wondered why I wanted it that he thought they only had one left and hadn’t sold one for a while, so I thought maybe there is something wrong with the card and no reason to go there to buy my next card so I bought my next one on line

    If you are a photographer, this is a great CF card to get. However, be aware that it does on occasion get corrupted. I have 2 of these, and i swap between them while on photo shoots. You can easily recover them, but its a terrible thing to have happen during a shoot. Other than that, its one of the better cards I own.

    I paired this 64GB CF with an IDE adapter to use it as a drive for an older computer, a PowerBook G3. The CF was recognized and initialized with no problems, and I loaded up Mac OS 9.1 on it. Works great, like a regular hard drive, but much much faster, and it gives new life in an old PowerBook.

    Even though this is not the fastest compact flash on the market, it has an amazing video speed capability that meets the demands of my professional level. I never have a problem performing 7 frames per second with this card with the Canon 5D Mark IV. It's a large capacity, fast performing, super value memory card.

    With dwindling devices using the CF memory cards it was great to see a 64GB storage for such a low price and from a known & trusted manufacturer. It's said some cameras like the Canon 50D require a firmware patch to recognize and utilize anything over 32GB but that's where Magic Lantern development comes into play.

    I was excited to get a good deal on this item so I bought two. Your associate explained the difference on how the storage for each gb and how well of a deal the memory card was. I was in a hurry to buy so I went with the best option. The pictures are pretty good and I have plenty of room

    The extreme 64gb CF Memory Card is what I needed on my trip to the Philippines. Just placed it in my Canon 5D MKIII and took a lot of shots. Recording video was also something I did and this thing being 64gb really helped on the vids.

    This card I suppose to try to install in my old IPOD mini (unfortunately it doesn't work.) Now I install to my Camara as the replacement of my old 16gb CF card. It works great and it has a faster speed. This is the valuable upgrade for my three years old camara.

    I bought this since I have a Cannon 7D. I have had cards like these and I have experienced losing some files. Probably bec the 7D does tend to heat up which did not help. So not entirely sure if another CF card with a different brand would have helped.
