The SanDisk Extreme Pro CFast card is the first to utilize the CFast 2.0 specification.

The cards are created to withstand real-world exposure to temperature, shock and vibration, and include a pinless design, which lessens the chance of damaging the card or camera while changing cards. The cards will also be marked with a unique individual serialization number that can be registered into SanDisk Pro Care Customer Support.
