Not Fast

I purchased both the 16Gig and 32Gig of the Kingston 600x. The price was great but when I tried them out they seemed very slow. I benchmarked them using a 7D for 15sec with Raw+JPG. These only got 28 frames. Sandisk Extreme III got 32 frames. Extreme IV got 38 frames. The Kingston should have been much faster but they are slower than cards rated less than half their speed. I also did the test with a 5dII and 50D with similar results. However I must say Adorama was great about returning them. ...

I purchased both the 16Gig and 32Gig of the Kingston 600x. The price was great but when I tried them out they seemed very slow. I benchmarked them using a 7D for 15sec with Raw+JPG.

I also did the test with a 5dII and 50D with similar results. However I must say Adorama was great about returning them. My guess is the UDMA mode was not working with my Canon cameras. But they are useless since that was what I purchased them for. I'm going back to Sandisk.

Excellent performance every time!

By

from Dalton, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I shoot a lot of bracketed shots with my Canon 50D and use the Kingston CF16GB (or other Kingston card sizes) exclusively. They process my RAW files quickly. Never had a single problem with them in the past five years and shooting hundreds of shots each outing.

WILL NOT FUNCTION in NIKON D4S

By

from florida  -  Professional

These cards...seem....to be a great value. And they are as long as you dont try to stick them in a D4s. After going back n forth with Kingston regarding them "supposed to" work with the d4s, and them sending me two new ones...that also dont work...I wrote this.

Great product at a great price.

By

from Summit, NJ  -  Professional

I do not shoot in massive bursts. If I did I might consider a faster card. Have had many Kingston cards without any problems and I take approximately 64,000 images a year.

Best Compact Flash Card

By

from Sacramento, CA  -  Semi Pro

I have bought quite a few of Kingston 16GB CFC's and fpund them to be reliable. I like this size for the photos I am taking. I have about 8 of these 16GB cards. I prefer this size since I feel if I were to purchase a really large capicity CFC, then if something should happen to the card , it would be a big loss.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can you use this product with a Canon Rebel Xti camera?
JOHN M  Yes. As fast as the rebel will ever need.
Keith S  Two questions ... 1. This will work in a Canon 7D? 2. What's the difference between a card that says '600x' and a card that says '60mb/s'?
LARRY D  Keith Yes thee cards work in a 7D. I ahve had great success shooting sports with these cards. I am not sure how the 600x compares with other cards. As far as i know there is no standard for the card speed, i use the speed to compare products within a particular brand
