Tag Archives: Sandisk Extreme Pro


If you're been following some of my social network profiles, i've been showing off my new Blackmagic Production 4K Camera. The problem I immediately ran into though was none of my Solid State drives (which worked fine for the BMCC 2.5K version) failed to work properly when shooting RAW. When shooting ProRes you'll be fine, but when shooting RAW this camera really requires a higher quality Solid State Drive.

So I'm super excited about this ONE DAY Sale on the Sandisk Extreme 'Pro' Series (keyword PRO) Solid State Drives. I have one 480GB Pro version tested with my BlackMagic Production 4K camera and all seems to be working well. I planned to grab another one so this sale comes just in time, in fact the price is so nice I may just have to pick up a few extras.

Even if you're unsure if you need one or not, you may want to order one just to take advantage of the sale, and then return it if you don't need it. It may not be necessary, but you guys looking to get an Atomos Shogun external 4K recorder could use a good SSD too. I highly recommend that you take a look and consider how you can take advantage of these 'Pro' series SSD drives (1 day sale found here).

Even if you don't shoot with a BMPC4K, this is a HUGE savings on these drives. Upgrade your laptop or use them as external editing drives with an inexpensive Thunderbolt adapter.

Sandisk has a few new ExtremePro cards available in 128GB and 256GB. Just in case you felt 256GB sd cards weren't large enough or maybe you were just too lazy to swap it out with another, Sandisk is also making available a new Extreme Pro 512GB SDXC Card.

These new cards look familiar, but are different than previous Extreme Pro cards by raising the bar with a UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) rating. These new cards are listed via Adorama (click here).

[Tip:] If you're running out of space on a MacBook Pro, you can also take advantage of the fast SSD speeds to make your own Thunderbolt External Drive to edit video with using an external adapter (article here).
