Hi - never posted a deal before but as these cards are around the £100 mark it seems a good price.
The two uses of these fast cards are faster download times to your pc (with the right card reader) and faster clearing of the buffer in your camera - for which you'll need the right camera (for example if you have a D200 you'd be better off buying cheaper extreme III cards, if you have a D300 you'll see some benefit).

There are standard 8gb cards out there for about £20 so it's only really worth buying these cards if you can make practical use of the extra speed in your photography.

Crazy price for the same capacity as this for less than £15: memorymegastore.com/mor…ing

Ok so its quicker, but unless you are a PRO you would either have to be mad or loaded to buy this surely?

I'd say that was accurate - it's a professional card so you'd need a professional use to warrant this kind of expenditure.

Don't worry about it - most people would quite rightly be appalled at the price! They're only worth that kind of money if you have a use for them.

Whoah HUKD not been digging this one! I can see the use but it's maybe too niche for this site.

I'm happy with the speed of the extreme IV cards for burst mode photography, but i can see why people would want to go one faster....

(i got an 8gb extreme iv cf card from mymemory the other week for a little over £55)
