A good solid product as usual from Kings

I went with Kingston because of my past experience with them. I have not been disappointed. I needed the class 10 and 16 gig storage because of the number and size the pictures I get with an 18 megapixel camera.

I like Kingston as a reasonably priced high quality card. Plenty fast for photo and video when the fastest read/write is not needed. Works great in S95 and 60D cameras.

This is a great card for the price and writes quickly, so there is no waiting for the image to appear on the screen.

Had a scary incident where I lost access to the card, lost all that data and had to reformat. Could have been the card could have been the camera. Only happened once. So 4 stars from me.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ANDREW T  I needed high capacity storage for the 18 megapixal camera I took to Africa on safari. I knew that I'd be shooting a lot of pictures and I didn't want to run out of storage. I downloaded pictures nightly to my Hyperdrive UDMA portable hard drive.
Howard J  Is this 16gb card and the 32gb card compatible with a Canon T2i Rebel camera?
RALPH H  I bought the Kingston Technology 16GB Ultimate X Class 10 Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Memory Card for use in my Panasonic Lumix FZ-100 camera. It has worked well. The only time I ran into problems was when I tried to use the camera without enough juice in the battery. As it can take a long time to write video to the card, (even at 10X) you must have plenty of reserve in the battery. I kept shooting after the low battery light illuminated and lost what I was trying to record. Other than this issue, I plan to get another one of these Kingston Technology 16GB Ultimate X Class 10 Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Memory Cards. As to using the 32 GB card, I have not tried it, but should be a simple matter of the spec's of your camera. The 2 GB capacity defined by the SD 1.1 standard wasn’t enough as card sizes grew, so the SD 2.0 or SDHC standard was added. It allows for capacities of up to 32 GB today; the standard is potentially ready for capacities of up to 2 TB. SDXC will follow next year, as 32 GB may remain the limit for the SDHC standard. Note that SDHC and SD cards are identical from the outside, so be sure your device supports SDHC before purchasing such a card (4 GB and up).
Shopper  Is this a reliable product with good quality?
MANUEL C  I have used Kingston Technology memory products for some time and have never experienced any problems or trouble with them. This class 10 SDHC card is very good in my opinion. I have formatted it in my digital recorder without a hitch and it has performed very well indeed.
