Even if new and better cards are coming it is unlikely that existing cameras will benefit from them.

The price has dropped here in the UK too. I picked up two 16GB's for 91 pounds each last week - not as cheap as in the US but I'm happy enough.

Still several hundred dollars each here in Australia and our dollar is about on parity with the US dollar these days.

Unfortunately B&H has no stock of the 32GB Extreme Pro cards now. I'm undecided about buying 16GB cards.

They are about $370 in Holland, so I can wait a few days extra.


Prices dropped in Holland as well. About $210 now! Still a way to go.
Just received mine from B&H today.

Are we talking about the same cards?
Can you point me out to the shop so I can look there first for the next time?

I received mine on Friday. It takes a few days for the full testing of 6 cards, depending on my work effort. I certainly do not use cards in the camera until all testing is complete.

What testing are you doing on the cards?

What I thought; the cards I'm (we're?) talking about are 175,00 and not 77,00
Sandisk Compact Flash Card Extreme Pro 32 GB 600x

So that saved me a long bike trip (Holland isn't that small)

Thanks for the tip! Just picked up a 16 GB! I checked Amazon, and even though those same cards are supplied by Adorama, they haven't seen the price drop yet!

Honestly, nothing crazy. I just make sure the cards have no trouble reading and writing. I never had a Sandisk card fail. I also shoot with two cards for redundancy. Any suggestions?

Have you ever had a bad Sandisk card? What program are you using for the test?

I've had no hard failures on Sandisk cards, but one bad partition table.

I use several apps. A simple, free one with wipe and testing features and that has no activation was Lexar Image Rescue 3. I don't think it is available from Lexar anymore, but perhaps it is on the web somewhere.

BTW, when the queen of recyling was about to dispose of the Sandisk boxes, it was observed that there is a small certificate wedged in the box. Apparently you now get only a 1-year subscription to the recovery service. Has anyone tried this app and is it difficult to uninstall? I have 8 certificates from the cards last week.

I just installed Rescue Pro on OSX Lion. It wont even open. I cant find any info out there on why it wont open or if anyone else there has the same issue.

Its not an issue right now. All I want to do is run a data check before I use my cards.

I only use PCs and update OS 6-12 months after release, so I don't know what to advise.

Yeah, I think they may have been priced too low.
