Flash

Flash:
"I purchased this for my canon T3 and it works as described, the only downside, as with all flash memory is you don't get the amount of memory it says on the card, the card has 29.7GB of space instead of 32 but its minuscule."
_
"As file sizes get larger with the newer digital cameras, however, it becomes uncomfortable to have to frequently change flash cards when you use smaller capacities."
_
"I have always been afraid to use large flash cards because, if something goes wrong, you risk losing a LOT of photos."
_
"For example, in my first attempt to upgrade to a larger card, I failed to note that I was purchasing a Class 4 flash memory card."
_
"I have used Sandisk flash cards almost exclusively since 2003 and have only once had a failure requiring me to use Remo Recover to extract photos from a corrupted card."
_
"I've been a user of Sandisk products for years, and after various flash drives, media, and MP3 players, I've only had 1 of their products fail me (an old 1 GB flash drive that became write protected many many many years ago."
_
"Flash Card is good but you should not be paying for shipping charges over and over and over when you buy more than one."
_
"good fast flash for off line storage"
_
"I had no problem with flash card with DSLR Camera D700"
_
"This flash drive was great while it worked."
_
"SanDisk Extreme 16GB SDHC UHS-1 Flash Memory Card Speed Up To 45MB s, Frustration-Free Packaging- SDSDX-016G-AFFP (Label May Change) [Old Version]To be fair, the Extreme cards are rated at 45mb s compared to these which are 30mb s; in fact I'd say that the Ultra was almost 30% slower, as is the mb s rating."

_
"For RAW pics, works great."
_
"needed more camera photo memory , great price and works good"
_
".Used for still photo and HD video without a problem."

"(Note, I used the same program and reader on a Extreme 32g card rated at 45 mb s and sequential read was 44.920 mb s and write was43.230 mb s, so the test should be reasonably accurate).Total, I purchased three Ultra's from Amazon: one 32gb and two 16gb, all claiming to be rated at 30 mb s (posting this review to all three).The read speeds for all three were good, ranging from 43.984 to 44.458 mb s, however, the write speed ( the important one) was way low, ranging from 10.043 to 11.546 mb s. All three cards failed to record ALL-I video on the Canon 70D, which require 20 mb s."
_
"after i got my T3i two years ago i kept having problems with recording video, as in it would cut it off for no reason and i tried formatting the card multiple times but it didn't work, then i did some research and got a Sandisk Ultra, it has been working perfectly ever since."
