    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

    this card is awesome for aux storage on mac

    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...

    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.

    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?!

    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.

    It's a memory card!

    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.

    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.
