Had a couple of the 8GB ones for my old Sony A100, Decent cards.

cheap but low capacity and old technology. Time to upgrade your camera if it still uses these dinosaurs

Do they work ok?

I have an a100 that was given to me by someone who upgrade, they advised against using larger CF cards in it as they'd experienced data corruption issues in the past with the bigger cards, yet it seemed to like the smaller E.g 1GB cards fine.

Professional photographers now use CF Fast cards. Superior to SD

this is a slow, very low capacity card..... no professional photographer would ever use this

4GB. LOL, I remember the days when a 4GB card was more than ample for my EOS 10D. Put one in my 5Dsr and it would be good for 40 images (raw+jpeg) 32gb is the sweet spot now pricewise for fast CF cards. Gives me 300 shots before I need to change cards.

I never suggested they would. It was just a reference to the type of technology.
CF cards have many uses.

but that was your 'go to' to suggest why CF is still in use. Can't think of any use for this item, as per my original comment, it might be cheap but waste of money

No it wasn't. CF Fast is a far superior technology to standard CF cards of which many professionals use because it was designed as such for these purposes.

I merely suggested that CF technology is not yet dead. I ordered 12 of these things for use at work as we do quite a lot of data back-up - & yes these are proprietary for the equipment they are used in.

Why, for the occasional use it gets it's not worth the expense and the camera although not the highest resolution compared to todays cameras still takes decent photographs, It will probably still be better than a cheapo camera today.

Kulaak, professional photographers use what their cameras require, in the speed rating most suitable to their purposes. You speak of CF Fast cards. Do you mean 'CFast' cards, or do you simply mean fast CF cards? They are two completely different things. CF cards are still very much in use, alongside SD-XC, in many of the cameras pros use on a day to day basis. Examples include the EOS 5D (including the latest MkIV), the 5Dsr, and the 7D MkII, beloved by many wedding videographers. I just watched my daughter's wedding video last night for the first time. Shot in Full HD, using two EOS 7d. Outstanding - broadcast quality.

So let's just be clear. Pros are still using CF cards.

My explanation has clearly caused some confusion. I do mean CFast cards. Yes, they are different things in their technology but can still be used in any CF card slot. AKA if you own a camera utilizing a CF memory slot you can boost it's speed with one of these, that is if the camera can benefit from the technology.

No, Cfast cannot be used in a CF card slot. Not only is the connector physically different, but CF is pata and Cfast is sata.

I stand to be corrected. I'd not looked into them in such depth.
