Most Liked Positive Review


great value

I used this card last weekend in Vegas. Took over 1000 shots and had no discrepancies with this card. Fast for what it is, reliable so far. Happy with this purchase.


Most Liked Negative Review


Just stopped working

I bought this card at the end of March. It is now mid-June. I was taking some photos and the card just failed. I put it in my PC, and it wouldn't format. I've used it consistently over the past 2.5 months, and would say it was fine if it hadn't just died.

My only card


from Lake Charles, LA  -  Professional

The only card I use in my 5D Mark III. I have used Kingston cards for 3 years and not one problem!!! Love them, trust them! Great price so I am able to replace yearly!

Wonderful Memory Card


from Dallas, TX  -  Semi Pro

I have been using this for a year now and i have never faced any issues... using this with my canon 40D and Canon 7D Works like a gun


A Solid Investment


from Grand Junction, CO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is solid value for the money. Yes, there are faster CF cards, and they cost accordingly. The Kingston brand is reliable -- I've used them for years.


Still working as it should!


from San Jose, CA  -  Semi Pro

I've had this card for a couple years and it's been super reliable for me. Using this on an Olympus E-510.


Cheap Memory


from Chicago  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I usually shoot out a card and then archive it as a 1st stage file. The card performed as expected when shooting and I have pulled images off of it on several occasions since without and degradation or file loss.


Works well for landscape shooting


from Bay Area CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Wanted larger capacity for trip to Yellowstone and other national parks in the area. 8gb gives me over 1000 jpeg shots and 500 Raw images per card. 2 cards gives me enough capacity for my trip. Instead of just shooting for quantity I prefer being selective in my shots and this amount is more than enough to review after the trip. Faster writing would be better for downloading, but for the price it works well.


No worries. Works great.


from brighton, mi  -  Semi Pro

Not much to say here which is probably a good thing. It is works great.


Reliable quality, value price!


from Colorado  -  Semi Pro

I've used a number of Kingston CF Cards now and have never had any trouble. It's a little slower than some of the other cards out there, but for the price it can't be beat!! I've used these cards in my Canon 5D and 50D and I've never lost an image. I keep a couple of these in the bag as back-ups in case I fill up my larger, faster cards.

Questions about this item:

Bernie B  what speed cf card should I require?
KENNETH B  Get the fastest you can afford.....and it depends a lot on what you will be shooting.....if you're using the camera for'll need the really high speed card.....if not, and you won't really be using burst mode, you could come down a notch in speed.
Shopper  Is this aType I CF?
RICH M  I believe they ARE Type I. I have had NO issues with them at all. Very Pleased. I actually had one in my pocket in a lake while shooting and it didn't suffer any damage! Photos came out fine and I still use it.
