SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash is designed for serious professional photographers who demand one of the fastest, most rugged, and most durable memory cards on the market. Professional photographers who work under less than ideal conditions expect more from a flash memory card. More speed. More performance. More reliability. SanDisk's new Extreme III card delivers everything you want plus a whole lot more!

That's because only SanDisk Extreme III memory cards feature innovative ESP Technology for the fastest speeds and highest performance. ESP stands for 'Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing'. Simply put, it means you are getting the fastest read/write speeds available - an amazing minimum 20MB per second sequential read and write speed - speed you'll definitely appreciate whenever you find yourself shooting and storing pictures in harsh environments, extreme temperatures or at high altitudes.

Every SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash card comes with RescuePRO® so you can recover images, documents, mail, video, music - just about any digital file, with ease. Built with leading-edge media recovery algorithms, RescuePro lets you preview recoverable data before you try to retrieve it. With RescuePRO's unique recovery algorithm for MPEG audio and MPEG video recovery (MPEG-1/2/3) what you see, and what you hear, is what you can recover.

e-mailed them last week about this - if you have the card reader / camera that can make use of it they are phasing in the sale of the 30mb/s extreme III cards - they recommend waiting a few weeks if you want one of those - it was £40 at the time of writing by the way, but this is still a good price. Again if you can use the speed and have need of it the 8gb extreme IV comes down to £70 less quidco with the 5% off.

Hi

Can you please leave rep if you vote this deal hot?

Thanks

It's good to see the price of these higher capacity cards continue to drop in price - one thing to consider though is as the capacity gets ever higher whether or not you want to put all your eggs in one basket - the convenience of 1 x 8GB card over say 2 x 4GB or 4 x 2GB - if the 8GB card develops a fault, you stand to potentially loose everything - whereas if you'd split things across a slightly larger number of smaller capacity cards, you're automatically spreading the risk and less likely to loose everything. I appreciate there are recovery tools out there which can in many circumstances bring images back from the dead - but something you might just want to keep in mind before you purchase.
#10
agree with above, two 4GB will be safe...
#11
I think you're right in general GrimTalez - I wouldn't consider using an 8Gb card a few years ago, cost issues aside, for the reasons you state - but now my camera is producing 15mb files I can go through an 8gb card quite quickly

After slating people for voting cold I think begging for rep is a bit rich :whistling:

Not a bad price for an 8gb card, but I think I'll stick to 4gb's for now.

Voted 'warm' (and no rep). ;-)

God knows mate.
I can only assume the person is trying to make up for a small pecker :whistling:
#15
As a freelance photographer I wouldnt dream of using 8GB cards - that's just pure suicide !!

Folk also need to note that not all digital cameras can utilise high capcity cards.

I'll not vote hot or cold on this one. Its a a good price, but take note of the reasons above.

I'm also damned if I'm adding rep to a begger !!

saw the 4gb sandisk extreme III at [url]www.dvd.co.uk[/url] for £17.99 + £2.99 delivery. Quidco is 2% making the total£20.62. If you get 2x4gb it is £41.24, which is only slightly more expensive. i would definitely go for the 2x4gb rather than 1x8gb just in case!! btw, has anyone seen any cheaper than this?

I think 17.99 plus delivery is as cheap as they come currently - bought two extreme III's when picstop were selling the 30mb/s version at this price - using an expresscard cf reader off ebay they download onto your pc in a couple of minutes and in use never maxed out the buffer in my camera.
#18
Make sure your camera is compatible with a 8Gb card.
I think not putting all your eggs in one compact flash basket is the way to go. Smaller card are better even if a bit more expensive.
#19
Also, the speed of this CF card is only an issue if your camera is top of the range. Most people with Nikon 200/300 etc will not have anything to gain with a faster CF card - the camera will be the rate limiting step.

Camera's still use CompactFlash? SD anyday people.:thumbsup:

Makes for faster transfers from card to PC ... assuming the card reader can handle the speed ;-)
#24
I got to say I bought this more than a year ago for my canon 400d, and this card is really good, i do back up my stuff on pc, but also keep it on card, i can really go through about 800 pics in a event, so to have it in one card is good, i keep forgetting things! :oops:

Nice deal, might get another one once iºm back in the uk!:thumbsup:

And actually there is a speed advantage writing to a 30mb/s card, over the 20mb/s version, at least with using a D300:
