Software & Accessories / 64GB: Sandisk Extreme 120MB/s vs Lexar 800x
« on: June 07, 2014, 09:41:10 AM »
Both the 64GB CF cards of Sandisk and Lexar are published to read at 120MB/s but the Lexar does its writes at 75MB/s while the Sandisk does it at 60MB/s

Price difference is below $3.

Can anyone verify which reads/writes faster?

Two-spot red snapper (Lutjanus bohar) by alabang, on Flickr

This Two-spot red snapper, Lutjanus bohar (local name "Maya-maya") is a regular catch at the Tacloban Fish Shed. I was told that this snapper is estimated to be about 5kg and that in bulk price it sells for $2.27/lbs.

If I had a proper kitchen to work in I would've bought this fish outright and make lunch!

Tanauan Tent City by alabang, on Flickr

Tanauan National High School is the site of the Tent City of Tanauan. Some 10,000 people live here and other close by areas for the past 7 months after November's Typhoon Haiyan while waiting for their permanent housing to be completed.

The heat index on the day I photographed this was at 41C or 106F.

The common worry amongst the people living here is the incoming typhoon season that may yield another typhoon like Haiyan/Yolanda.

I love the low price but I hate that my order will not arrive before June 5. So I ended up cancelling it. :(

There's an offer for a 64GB Lexar 800x CF card for $83 but that sucks compared to the $90 for 1066x card.

Thanks Jeff.

Yes, the center watermark is distracting but I don't want my photo stolen.

During and after the aftermath of Cat 5 Typhoon Haiyan (Philippine name: Yolanda) it served as a refuge for survivors.

This photo of the Tacloban Astrodome taken on May 27, 2014 is perhaps the last one of the interior before the fire that hit it on May 29, 2014.

Tacloban Fish Shed by alabang, on Flickr

This was photographed at was once a very busy and bustling "Fish Shed" for the city of Tacloban that serviced most of the seafood requirement of Eastern Visayas. After nearly 7 months the people who worked there are building back and going back to business as usual.

They appeared to have adjusted to the fact that boats run aground are the new normal. To me it looks like it's the set to the TV program "Lost".
