The Sandisk Extreme III 2GB is a mass storage device capable of storing approx 2GB of information. Photo's, videos or sound files depending what you are shooting with. Canon use CF cards as a primary source of media concerning their DSLR's. I use it when taking still images with my digital camera set to high quality. I an take around 500 images at 4MB each quickly and be safe in the knowledge that Sandisk won't loose my pictures.
This card is a extremely robust with high recording and file transfer. The card has a read/write speed of 20MB a sec so rapid continuous shooting works really well with this card even when shooting RAW with a digital camera. The Extreme range of Sandisk CF cards have a good working reputation of performing in difficult to severe weather conditions. Find yourself in conditions such as torrential rain or cold or heat and this should stand up to it's promise. I've shot on to this card in the Caribbean when the temperature was 40 degrees or so, and also in cold conditions in snow and it's stacked up very well.
It does come with memory recovery software and a un-limited warranty for an extra confidence boost when shooting to the card. It also comes with a small plastic card case but I tend to keep mine in a multi-wallet with my other CF cards.
There are 2, 4, 8 & 16GB Sandisk card in the Extreme III series also available but this one meets all my requirements.
I bought a Canon 400D camera and needed some memory card. Because I have always used Sandisk for my other equipment (compact digital camera, mobile phone, USB pendrive), I investigated what Compact Flash they offered.
The cards come with capacity of 4, 8 and 16GB.
I choose the 2GB for many reasons. Firstly it will accommodate up to 250 photos which is plenty. Secondly, I purchased two 2GB rather than a single 4GB one because despite being more expensive, if I loose one I still have got a spare one or I do not loose all photos. Thirdly, 2GB card takes obviously less time to empty to the PC than a 4GB. So while you are downloading the pictures, you can still using the camera with the other card. Last but not least, it has got a lifetime guarantee.
This compact flash card has got a quick reading-writing speed (minimum 20MB/s). This is of great use when you use the camera in continuous shooting mode.
I highly recommend this card .
I recently purchased a 400D DSLR before my birthday, so I obviously needed to purchase a CF card! I was recommended to get atleast a 2.0 GB CF card with a quick reading/writing speed.
I've always used SanDisk cards in all my devices. Mobile phones, cameras, mp3 players, whatever and I've never had any problems. I purchased a SanDisk Extreme III 2.0 GB CF card solely because of it's read and write speed. It has a minimum read and writing speed of 20MB /sec, which is fast! It also came with a lifetime warranty from SanDisk which is excellent. The card is ideal for demanding photoshoots under severe weather conditions - heat, rain, cold, snow according to SanDisk. I do alot of wildlife and nature photography, so that was a bonus! The CF card also came with a little carry case, which I attached to my 400D carry case.
After using the SanDisk Extreme III, I know I will never get anything lower in speed. I can quickly take a variety of shots, and browse them within a few seconds. I know someone who has a much slower card, and has to wait in between shots and can't quickly view them.
I'd definitely recommend getting one!
I use these cards in my SLR camera since i began to purchase before i knew about the 4gb ones. I have roughy 10 of these and have never had a single problem with these or with the cards in the camera. Also, these can be picked up very cheap from www.play.com and are ideal for budding photographers or experts a like. They also work in very hostile enviroments where cheap copied cards would begin to fail.
