Been using these for years and Love them, and they are FASTI know some prefer other brands that may be a bit more expensive, I used whatever's good, and I've been using Trascend for years with one card failure in about eight years and 20 cards. And I'm 90% sure the camera was at fault, not the card.This writes as fast as ANY Others in my Canon DSLRs, which can snap up to 10-12 frames per second of RAW + Jpegs, generating hundreds of Megabytes a second. The Trascend writes and clears fast, the Canon DSLRs buffer clears fast so you can get another burst in before it has to pause to write.Great value for the price. Back up your data to at least two External Hard Drives.5Great card for the money, but probably overkill for casual shooters.faaaaaaast, wow. The fastest CF card I've benchmarked personally (I'm sure someone else can beat it)PRO:-speed is incredibly high, both for writing and for reading. I've seen over 90MB/s read and write, peaks over 110MB/s.--this means your camera won't spend much time writing to the card, for longer bursts of shots.--it also means you can copy your photos to your computer much faster (use a USB3 card reader, though)-capacity: 32GB is a lot of images. On my A900, I can get over 800 RAWs on this one card. Each file is 36MB, so space disappears fast.CON:-expensive compared to 600x and 400x offerings. (but cheap compared to other 1000x competitors)-so fast that you actually need a USB3 card reader and a very quick HDD or SSD to make full advantage of it.-really nothing, if you need speed then this is actually a bargain. Casual photographers, please don't buy premium cards like this. A 400x card will be just as good for your needs.Most 1000x cards cost considerably more than this. Transcend's claims of speed are accurate according to my tests.5It's like a hard drive for your camera!I am a pro photographer and have never been able to take enough pictures to get the countdown meter to move. The 5DMKIII always reads 1999 pics left. I shoot raw and have this card plus a 128g SD card. The camera is set to write the same thing to both cards as a safety. At the end of a session, I pull one card and leave one it the camera. That way if someone steals my gear or if anything happens on the way home, i have the images in my pocket. If something happens to me and or the card in my pocket, they images are still in the camera. I dump the card I pull but leave the last session on the card in the camera.At the end of the next session, I pull the other card and ump it and erase the old session. It is just a bit of a safety measure for me.Another idea would be to have one card for raws and dump it at the end of every session and set the other to Jpg medium or small and dump it annually. It could be a built in auto back up. Just a thought.I have numerous Transcend cards and have used them professionally for years with no issues. These were originally purchased for dslr video purposes. Worked flawlessly. It was not until later that I realized how nice they were for every day photo work.5Fastest card I have seenA friend let me use a 600x Duracell CF card, and I wondered if it was really faster in a real world use. I compared it to my usual SanDisk "95mb/s" SD card and found that in a 30 second burst on a 5D MK3 that I could go from 40 shots to 47 shots. I don't normally shoot burst that long, but when I do, speed can make the difference between getting the moment and not getting it. So I researched what had the fastest in camera write time (I don't real care about read time, since at that point I either have the shot or I don't) and this was rated the fastest on tomshardware.com and it was fairly cheap on Amazon. I just tested it and found I could shot 91 images in a 30 second burst, and it had no additional write time when I stopped like the other cards do. So yes a real world 200% improvement in ability to capture a burst in frames is very impressive!!5A Good Price Point for a 54Gb CF UDMA 7I used this 64 Gb Transcend CF chip and a 32 Gb SD SanDisk Extreme Pro simultaneously in my Canon 5D Mk III on two previous shoots. The SanDisk is used for JPG backups while the faster higher capacity Transcend was used for RAW. On the second shoot the SanDisk chip got corrupted. I went to the SanDisk site to download their free recovery utility only to find that it is no longer free. I was redirected to a third party site where they wanted $40 for the software. Luckily the Transcend chip came with its own recovery software that I had installed on my computer. It worked like a charm and recovered my files.The Transcend CF seems to be reasonably fast and keeps up with my 3 to 5 shot bursts of RAW files averaging 20+ Mb each. By observation only, the eventual transfer from the CF to my computer using a USB3 card reader also appeared to go quickly. I have used SanDisk, Transcend and Kingston chips in the past and normally have found the SanDisk and Transcend chips to be superior to the Kingston. If you use the SanDisk just know their recovery software is no longer free for download unless you catch a special promotion. All chips from any manufacturer can get corrupted. Make sure your camera is turned off and has finished writing before chip removal to avoid problems.4Fast cards for fast times on my 7dBest bang for the buck! Amazingly fast card. I'm able to burst at 5-7 large RAW shots before it starts writing and it would only take a second or two for it to complete writing before I can shoot again. I'm not shooting sports or action pics anymore, but this will definitely hold up in real world scenarios.I've had Transcend, Lexar and Sandisk cards, and I've never had a single Transcend card fail on me. You know as I'm writing this I'm knocking on wood. I hope I didn't jinx myself. Anyways... 32GB in full RAW is perfect just enough to get a few hundred shots and not worry about losing your entire event on a single card. Like most I'm worried about data loss and this one hasn't let me down.5Super fast, achieves maximum continuous burst mode shooting on my 5D Mk IIII use this in a Canon 5D Mk III.Previously, only using the Lexar 1000x card could get you to maximum fps/burst on the Canon spec chart. That's not the case anymore.I bought the 64GB version of this card having had good experiences with Transcend cards in the past. I upgraded it from a 32GB 400x Transcend CF card, which is now relegated to a backup card after being blown out of the water by this one.I put this CF card into my 5D Mk III and turned off all settings such as high ISO noise reduction, auto lighting optimization, etc. (i.e. anything that might slow it down), back button focused on an object and then begin firing. SDHC card was in the camera, but relegated to being a fail over if the CF card filled up (which won't happen quickly, given I'm reading 1600+ shots on this 64GB card shooting Large RAW only). Shutter speed was set to 1/640.The results are hard to argue with:Shooting Large RAW on high speed continuous (6 fps), the camera says the buffer has 13 shots. I averaged 18/19 over about three seconds though before the shutter speed/rhythm started to stutter and slow down.When I put my camera on silent continuous (3 fps, same as low speed continuous), I took over two hundred shots with no stutter before I took my finger off the shutter release button.When I put it on Large JPEG, I fired of 230+ shots on high speed continuous (6 fps) with no lag or stutter before I took my finger off the shutter release button.Bottom line: on the 5D Mk III, this 64GB 1000x CF card is more than fast enough for my occasional burst usage, and it's nearly $120 cheaper than the Lexar at the time of this review.When I copied 1.91GB from the card to my local hard drive using a Sandisk ImageMate USB 3 card reader, it took 24 seconds. Granted, that is in a computer without bottlenecks, and the drive it is copying to is a Raid 0 comprised of two Solid State Drives.An amazing, fast as blazes card, and given the RAW burst performance and price difference to the competition, a great deal to boot.**Edited 3/29/2013:**If sports and other situations where you frequently have to do extended burst shooting in RAW + JPEG is on the table, you may still want to consider the Lexar. Per Rob Gilbraith testing method, these are the burst numbers for RAW+JPEG for shots taken in 30 seconds on high speed continuous:565865717169The 1000x lexar numbers on Rob Gilbraith's site are 73 - 75 shots in the same 30 second period. So the Lexar is a bit faster. Shooting RAW only on low speed continuous, or JPEGS on high, were not a problem.****************Edited 4/21/2013****************I have to take back what I said about the lexar card. What I needed to do was low level format this Transcend card. And now it's faster than the Lexar. And not by a little bit either.This is what I did: I went to the transcendusa dot com website, selected United States, and in the Support section, on the Download page, downloaded the Autoformat utility. Be advised if you run it in windows, you must right click the utility and run it as administrator. I then did a complete format, which took several minutes (with my card in a card reader). I put the card back in the camera, and formatted it there.Same test conditions as before now net the following burst numbers:858485It's faster than the Lexar. But it must be low level formatted using the utility on the Transcend site, then formatted in camera.Please note: the higher the ISO, the lower the burst numbers. I was only able to achieve these numbers at ISO 100. Raising the ISO number consistently reduces the burst numbers. Even at ISO 100, in subsequent testing, I was only able to achieve 84 bursts sometimes. I am trying to nail it down, but I suspect that it is either something to do with exposure or color, or that the card needs to warm up first. I will post any info if I figure it out. Lowest burst number I've been able to achieve since reformatting the card using the utility (at ISO 100) has been 71 shots in 30 seconds.5Another Quality Transcend CF CardI've owned numerous CF cards over the years of shooting for fun and professionally, including various brands. Most professionals I know swear by SanDisk Extreme, and I've owned a few and can agree they are great except for the price. I've owned several Transcend cards and have found them to be just as fast and reliable as the SanDisks I've owned, but usually at half the price.This card was no exception. Plugged into my Canon 5D Mark III, formatted and put it to use. Very fast write times keeping up with the in camera buffer handily. Reading files using my Transcend USB3 card reader is extremely quick and I've yet to have a corrupted image.Highly recommended as a budget alternative, but also just as a solid performer.5My D800 problem solved...With my Nikon D800, I was using the fastest SD card I could find while using my older, slower CF cards in the second slot as backup. I began having the 'freeze' or 'hang' problem where after making an exposure the rear monitor would lock up, showing only the hanging hour glass. Only waiting for an indefinite period of time or a hard shut down would clear this writing error. After doing a lot of research and trying to find out what others were doing to remedy the problem (since sending the body to Nikon wasn't resolving things for others who tried) the one thing people said cured the issue was to switch to CF priority.These 1000x cards from Transcend are their best/fastest so I knew it had the greatest potential to write files without the hanging hour glass freeze. Once I got the card and made the switch in the menu system, the issue hasn't come back once. So kudo to transcend for making a fast card at a reasonable price. Shame on Nikon for creating or allowing the problem in the first place.Highly recommended card...5Speed Demon!I noticed that my new Transcend CompactFlash 1000x 16GB card really is nearly twice as fast as my other Transcend CompactFlash 600x cards (as seen when unloading images to my PC). Nice! I haven't seen any difference with this card in camera, but I don't do a lot of continuous shooting, which is where the additional speed might show itself. I've used my four Transcend 600x cards for three years, taking thousands of pictures without any problems. I expect my new 1000x card will do as well.I also bought the Transcend USB 3.0 Super Speed Multi-Card Reader to use with the 1000x card. It works beautifully with the 1000x CF card on a USB 3.0 port, but doesn't work with my 600x CF cards -- my PC does not "see" the card.5
