SanDisk Extreme FireWire Reader
For testing I used a set of 544 files, 1.89GB of photos. Testing included the SanDisk 2GB Ultra II, 8GB Extreme IV and 8GB Extreme Ducati Edition CompactFlash cards.
SanDisk Ultra II 2GB
- Transfer files with printer USB reader - 30+ minutes. I gave up waiting.
- Transfer files with USB reader - 7:35 minutes.
- Transfer with Extreme FireWire reader - 7:35 minutes
SanDisk Extreme IV 8GB
- Transfer files with USB reader - 4:15 minutes
- Transfer with Extreme FireWire reader -1:33 minutes
SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition 8GB
- Transfer files with USB reader - 3:20 minutes
- Transfer with Extreme FireWire reader - 1:10 minutes
SanDisk RescuePro Deluxe Software
I also tested the RescuePro Deluxe software designed to recover deleted files. We all fear the thought of accidentally deleting all the files after or during a photo shoot. RescuePro worked like a charm, I recovered the deleted files with no problems.
If you want a compact flash card that provides the highest performance and reliability choose one of the SanDisk Extreme cards, for motorcycle enthusiasts or Ducati fans the 4GB or 8GB SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition is the obvious choice.
I'm looking forward to using the Ducati Edition to photograph Ducati MotoGP riders Casey Stoner and Marco Melandri at the U.S. Grand Prix, July 18-20.
