I am a semiprofessional photographer, and when I bought my first DSLR, I decided that I needed to purchase a new memory card to go with it. I bought this one, and I haven t regretted it. It does indeed perform at the stated speed, and it works well with the Canon EOS series. For the camera I have, 4GB is the perfect amount of space; it gives plenty of room for hundreds of pictures, but it s not so large that it s unmanageable. For the amount of money spent, it is an excellent value.
If you re moving into digital photography - especially digital photography where you will need to snap many pictures in rapid succession (like animal photography or sports photography), you need to invest in a high-speed card, and this is a good card in which to invest.
The only real problem with this card is that the Nintendo Wii console won t recognize it; I sometimes use the Wii to show people my pictures (family and friends; most of my photos get published to the internet). If you re buying this card to go with your Wii, I wouldn t; there s probably an update or something that will let you use this card, but you don t really need a card like this for the Wii anyway; a regular SD card will likely suffice. If you are a photographer like me, however, you can t really go wrong with this one.
