Ouch! Heading into SSD territory with a $350 price tag! I like speed but good grief with a price tag like that I could get a bare-bones barely-moving netbook! - BLUEBOY

These ultra fast cards are meant for high end DSLR cameras. Allowing longer burst shots and faster retakes. Also better for recording HD video.
