    I've had no problem shooting Kingston cards for the past 5 years. I use a Canon 5D mkII and 1D mkIV and ran test against a 32gb Lexar 400; the Lexar emptied the 25 shot buffer on the 1DmkIV in 9sec.; the Kingston in 14sec. For my $ and shooting style the faster 5sec. means nothing. Just Saying!

    I use this product with my Canon EOS 7D.

    I've only had it for a couple of weeks, and I'm experiencing digital dropout with pics, and video. Strange thing, I can copy the same file from the card multiple times with different results. Example: the file will be corrupt when I transfer using my card reader, then I'll copy it again, and it will be fine. Or, a pic will be messed up on the reader, but if I use the camera to copy it over the photo will be fine.

    This has been a consistent problem.

        I use them in my Canon Rebel XTi all the time and they do a great job storing up to 35-4000 photos. One thing I like is the sticker color, makes them easier to find. And one other thing is the price.

              This 32GB Compact Flash works great with my Nikon D70. It holds hundred of pictures and fast enough for this amateur photographer. I've used the card a couple dozen times and only once did the camera not read from it. I ejected it, reinstalled it, and no problems after that.

                        Since going totally RAW with my Canon 7D storage space on travel is always running short so another 32GB helps. I don't video much so don't want to spend twice as much for an ultrafast CF but want reliability. With next trip I will test reliability.

                                I've been using a 2G CF for years and didn't realize the importance of writing speed versus storage size. I upgraded to this 32GB CF card. My DLSR used to lag when writing RAW files to my 2G card. This card is so fast that I barely even notice the shot was taken. The camera performs so much faster then before. This is a great card for the money.

                                I've read that people lose data but I haven't experienced this. I bought a CF reader in which the card inserts securely without risk of bending the pins.

                                The only thing I find odd is that my laptop doesn't show that this card has 32G worth of space on it. It only shows something like 4G which. I've read about this before so I am currently loading up the card to confirm that are 32G of data on it.

                                  This card is 4x faster than my old one, + it doesn't make any noise and looks nice too!

                                      I normally use high quality compact flash cards for all my work. I'm a professional wedding photographer in VA. I use these cards for my back up photographers. That way if there is ever a loss of data it wouldn't be as bad as if I lost my images. Not that I've ever had that problem.

                                            I purchased this memory card for my Canon 40D.
                                            Since I can't shoot video with the 40D this memory card's speed is fast enough for me.

                                            Bought them as cheap extra CF cards for my Canon 7D and 5D mkIII. Mostly recorded in 720 but i can't see that the speed would affect filming in 1080. They aren't the fastest when it comes to data transfer from the card to PC/Mac but they aren't painfully slow. They worked well for backup cards and if you are shooting on the cheap would be good enough cards as your main CF cards as well. (As a side note i only used them for video i do not know how well they would fair in burst shooting modes on the cameras.)

                                                  I have no complaints and it's sufficiently fast. Very good price/value when I bought it as well.
