I bought these CF cards for my two old Nikon DSLR's. I own a Nikon D70 and a D70s. I keep these old bodies around because they have an unlimited flash sync speed if your using radio triggers. A very useful feature if you do any kind of flash photography involving quick movements. Sometimes shooting outdoors with a flash can be tricky with todays cameras. But the D70 and D70s makes that easy.
The CF cards I first bought for these bodies where the slower Transcend 133x CF cards. With these bodies I don't do much photography that involves wildlife or sports shooting. But when I do I always found the slower 133x cards just couldn't keep up with the old D70's. When I bought the 133x cards I assumed that because these cameras where so old that I wouldn't be able to use or take advantage of faster CF cards. I was wrong.
I have a friends 16GB Lexar 800x CF card laying around. I decided to see if the old D70's could take advantage of the cards much improved wright speeds. To my surprise the old D70's did and boy did the buffer dump ALLOT quicker into the 800x card. Compared to the 133x card which would take forever to clear.
With the 800x card you can keep a decent pace going of two or three shot bursts, you can see in the viewfinder how quickly the buffer clears. With the Transcend 400x card it seems that the performance is much the same as the 800x Lexar. Only because I believe having an 800x card in a body that old (about 11 years old for the D70 and 10 years old for the D70s) is a waste. Sure it made a difference compared to the 133x card but the camera itself can't wright to the card quickly enough to warrant spending the extra cash on an 800x card. When shooting in JPEG Fine you can just keep shooting with both the 400x and 800x cards. You'll never fill the buffer.
So basically from a performance perspective it was worth it to buy the two Transcend 400x CF cards. They are affordable and worth the investment. The other reason for my need to upgrade was also to allow all of my pictures to be quickly transferred to my PC. The read times are allot quicker with these 400x cards compared to the x133 cards. This means all my photo's get transferred to my PC quicker.
Transcend is now my "go to" memory card company. I've been using their products since 2012 and I've yet to have an issue. For my newer DSLR's I bough the 300x SDHC cards. I own 8 of them and they all have been perfect.
I am not a videographer but I did try video with it recently specifically for the purpose of testing the card speed - no problem at all, it does not even display the bar graph on the buffer being drained as the video gets recorded.
I shot nearly 30K pictures with it now, plus maybe half an hour combined movies and the card had no problem.
I read a number of remarks on this card and its bigger (albeit younger) sister the 64MB version and people complain of how the card stops working after some time, is not recognized by the camera (whatever camera) or the computer etc.
There can be any number of reasons for that but let me start by saying that I live in the very humid Costa Rica, I have been taking a lot pictures (>250k) with numerous digital cameras since 2000 and I never, ever had a card failure, be it SD or CF.
I am a design engineer who has worked in maintenance years ago.
One classic point of failure is connectors.
The CF cards have a 50 points female connector with very small holes that need to remain clean and dry to ensure proper operation. The more you move your card around the more chances it has to get dust or moisture in there that you will not be able to remove.
People will point out that the contacts should not oxydize thanks to their coating, maybe, but moisture will change the capacitance of the contact and it may not be even between lines of the same bus, leading to timing differences between pins - the faster the card access, the more problems you will get.
And don't try to use a cotton-tipped swab to clean the CF card slot in your camera: you will bend the male pins which are small enough to fit in the corresponding female holes.
The mini-USB B connector, on the other hand, has only 4 contacts than can be cleaned reasonably easily, and a faulty cable can be replaced at nearly no cost - you certainly have spares around. Some will point out that the USB is slower than direct CF access - it is frequently true depending on the camera model, the computer and the cable, but in my book reliability comes way before speed and the difference is not that bad anyway, especially with the 7D.
Another issue is how the CF card gets mounted by the OS on the computer.
The CF card is like a hard drive or a floppy (for those who remember these guys) in that it relies on specific sectors telling the computer or camera where to find what file. The way these sectors are coded was originally defined for small volumes and then modified over and over as new features were added: hierarchical folders, long file names, more than 720kB for the whole disk etc.
Why do I mention that? Simply because the format of these sectors has grown exponentially complex and confuse and differed between the computer manufacturers (e.g. the same physical floppies could contain 720k on PC and 800k on Mac) and therefore it became difficult to be compatible with everyone.
The 64GB CF is nearly one million times bigger than the original floppies.
Bottom line: it is safer to use one and only one computer to access the card: this computer should be your camera. Chances are its interpretation of the CF card format will be consistent and it does not need to be compatible with either PC or Mac.
Any different OS, any actual card reader you use, with any different driver can be a cause of incompatibility.
The more you use your camera's extended capability to store pictures or movies in subfolders, to lock them against accidental deletion etc., and the more you do the same with the computer, the higher the chances you will find a misunderstanding between the card reader / driver / OS you use and the camera on what is meant by what in the CF card formatting.
Hey even computer internal hard drives get corrupted somtimes.
Just don't take that chance.
When you retrieve your pictures, just get them all and sort them with the computer, then "delete all pictures from card" to avoid fragmentation.
When I have had to remove a card and connect it to a computer, I always reformat it right away with the camera. This way even if the file system was corrupted due to anything (not pointing fingers here) it gets back to a known, clean state.
My point is I need my camera to be able to take pictures; I don't need it to store them or to backup Word files as I have seen some people doing.
A card this size allows me to shoot sports for hours (e.g. yesterday at a kids swimming tournament, 3200 pictures) and I hardly pass half the card size in JPEG best def. including two test movies. Then I don't need to swap cards at all.
Some pros and books advise to always have backup cards because card failures happen. They will call me a heretic for this advice but maybe if they did not swap cards they would not have failures in the first place.
At some point before really big cards exist it made sense to have a few.
I didn't think I'd notice much of a speed difference with an old EOS 5D MKII but right off the bat formatting of the card basically burned rubber, besting my SanDisk cards several fold. And uploads to my Mac via my Firewire reader were also noticeably faster as well. I didn't notice any difference in normal shooting but I mainly shoot landscapes and never overwhelm my camera's buffer even with a slow card. However, I can squeeze in an amazing 1400 RAW images. My image counter only shows 999 and is stuck thus for the first 400 pictures!
Nevertheless, the true test of this card is reliability over years. I'lll update if there are any developments over the next year or two. For now all I can say is this is dad burn fine card: fast, well built and nicely priced. I sold all my 4 and 8GB SanDisk cards and plan to buy another Transcend 32GB 400X for backup.
01/21/2014 Update: Nearly 6 months of heavy use and it still works perfectly so I bought another one.
