About Kingston Technology

• Starting at 4 GB, SDHC cards offer larger-volume data storage and optimized recording performance with support for FAT 32 file formats. In addition, Kingston's SDHC cards use new speed "class" ratings known as Class 2, 4 and 6 that deliver a minimum data transfer rate for optimum performance with SDHC devices.
• Although identical in size to todays standard SD card, the new SDHC cards are designed differently and are only recognized by SDHC host devices. To ensure compatibility, look for the SDHC logo on cards and host devices (cameras, camcorders, etc.).
• For added reliability and durability, our solid-state SDHC memory cards are built of nonvolatile memory components and have no moving parts that could wear out or break. All cards are 100-percent tested and are backed by a lifetime warranty? and 24/7 live technical support.

Lots of storage for a very low price

I purchased the card to shoot a wedding with my Nikon D80. I took over 900 images and could have shot a couple of hundred more. I wore out before the card filled up! No problem with the card keeping up. Great value for a very low price. I'm planning on taking it on vacation next week. Because of the great storage capacity, I won't have to download images until I get home.

Card works, but...

This 8GB SDHC card is rated at a class 6. I am used to the Extreme III series from Sandisk and there is a very noticable difference between the two at least in read speed. When reviewing pictures on the Extreme III card in my Nilon D80, you can switch from picture to picture in less than a second or about as fast as you can press the button. I would venture to guess that on the Kingston card, it's probably 1.5-2 seconds per picture. That doesn't sound like much until you are used to the faste...

Other than that, I don't have enough experience with the new card to provde more feedback.

Works great

By

This is my third Kingston 8 GB SDHC Card. All three are used most every day. They are not the fastest I've ever used but they are plenty fast for my use as a hobbyiest. At first I was somewhat leary as these cards are such a great bargin. I've used these three cards moderately over several months and under normal hobbyist(meaning non professional) conditions and have had no problems

Works OK But A Bit Slow

By

from San Bernardino County, CA  -  Semi Pro

This card is rated as Class 6, 6MB/second write speed. It meets that spec but is slow for my Nikon D80. I can only take three rapid shots and then have to wait for the card to finish before I can take another shot. An SD card should be able to keep up with a Nikon D80. My 4GB SanDisk SD cards are also rated Cleass 6 and are 2x as fast as this Kindgton card.

so far so good

By

This is my SECOND Kingston SDHC media card and the first class 6. i got it because I wanted to have suffficient storage for an extended photo trip taking images in both raw and fine on my D80. I had previously used only SanDisk but the big price differential and the hokey nature of rebate being offered by SaDisk strongly suggested Kingston. I've been through about 1/2K pics on the first card with no problems so I decided to opt for on the second one. They do seem to be a tad slower than SanDisk but for the snap shooting/family album type shooting that I do, that doesn't pose a problem.

Great card at an excellent price

We use this in our Canon SD790IS camera. It writes quickly and has been reliable. I have another Kingston Class 6 SDHC card for my other camera; been in use for over two years and works great.

Why pay more?

By

from Annapolis, Maryland  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I had been using SanDisk exclusively since entering the digital age of photography. They are fast, durable and EXPENSIVE! When it came time to move to an 8 GB device, I decided to try a less expensive alternative and, after some research, landed on Kingston 8 GB class 2 and bought one for use with my D80. After several month of use, it proved so useful and suited my needs so well that I bought 2 more - this time at class 6 - for use on an extended photo vacation. Compared to SanDisk of the same class, the Kingston media seems slower in transfer to the card and when doing in-camera editing or review and, if I made my living creating massive files in a rapid fire fashion, this might be of concern. I don't and, for this hobbist, the kingstons are plenty fast and a great deal less expensive. Another, less important, reason for choosing something other than SanDisk was SanDisks annoying rebate pricing. Kingston pricing was straight forward and extremely competitive with none of SanDisk's hokey markdowns through tedious rebate routines.

Big card for a little camera

By

from Springville, Utah  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

With video capacity, snap and shoot cameras are super easy to use with a larger capacity card. I use it for kids concerts and birthday parties. I never run out of space at an event. Downloading and creating a final product on the computer, then erasing the card make for a perfect workflow with this product.
