About Kingston Technology

The Elite Pro line offers a memory grade for enthusiasts and professionals who require higher write speeds and lower power consumption from their CompactFlash cards. This allows Elite Pro users the opportunity to get additional speed and performance out of their flash memory based equipment

With image files quickly growing in size, the time it takes to store or write those files to a Flash card is becoming an important buying criterion for prosumers and professionals. Today, many Flash cards are sold with an "X" speed rating that is similar to how CD-ROM drives are sold. This rating system gives users a performance indicator of how fast the card can transfer images.

Kingston's Elite Pro/Ultimate Flash Cards "X" Speed Ratings
Kingston defines X-speed as the write speed, because users generally care more about how long it takes to write data to a Flash cardwhen using it in a digital camera or cell phone. Typically, read speeds are higher than write speeds for Flash cards, so the write speed is more meaningful when measuring performance.
45X Elite Pro/Ultimate X Speed = 6.75 Comparable MB/sec.
50X Elite Pro/Ultimate X Speed = 7.50 Comparable MB/sec.

Kingston Elite Pro/Ultimate Flash Cards for Quality and High Performance
Kingston's Flash cards deliver on the quality and high performance needed by prosumers and professionals alike. These cards also have speed headroom to support users who plan to upgrade later to newer and faster host devices.

All cards come with a lifetime warranty, 24/7 technical support and Kingston's legendary reliability, making Kingston the ideal memory choice for Flash storage devices.

Love this card!

This card is great! Everything the description says is true, with the exception of the superfast speed between pictures. (In all fairness though, that may be due in part to my camera.) Especially for the price, you can't beat it!

Excellent performance for the price

By

I am glad that I bought this card. It was an inexpensive card with a large enough capacity that I will not have to worry too much about filling it up during a short day's shooting. I am using a D70 and this card is as fast as I have thus far needed it to be. At the moment, it's large enough and fast enough for the price paid. If it's going to be too slow for you and your camera, you likely already know it.

Good Choice for the price

Shot 700 plus pictures with this card on my DSLR. Speed does not matter so much when taking pictures as the DSLR buffer captures the info. Download times from card are adequate.
