    Search around for weeks looking at prices and capabilities of SD cards to suite my needs as well as my budget. I decided that a Class 10 card was important ... but some of the prices were a little high given that I wanted to purchase a few cards at once. Extremely happy that I took my time and went Kingston Ultimate X for my HD video needs.

    I bought one of these for use with a Canon 550d / T2i.

    For photos it works fine, and I would happily recommend it to a friend. For video, particularly at the highest HD resolution and frame rate, the combination of camera and card can't always keep up, leading to a buffer overrun and premature termination of the recording. This happens consistently whenever either the focus or lighting changes rapidly. Under more benign conditions I can record long videos with no problems.

        I'm not sure on this product yet because the first one received would not work in my new Canon EOS Rebel T4i. Camera would not recognize the card. When I put the card in my computer, the computer locked up. Only thing it worked in was a Canon Powershot Digital camera. I received a replacement card and so far it is working.

        The first card of this type did not work in my new Canon EOS Rebel T4i Digital camera (not recognized by the camera), it locked up my computer when I loaded it in the card reader and only seemed to work in a point & shoot camera. The replacement sent to me works in my new Canon camera so far without issues although it seems to be slower than other SD cards.

            I use this card in my Nikon D5100 dSLR. The write speed is fast enough that I can shoot at the highest resolution without any waiting between shots. The D5100 also takes video at 1080p, 30fps and I have not had any memory card speed issues. I have always trusted the Kingston brand. I have never had a Kingston card fail.

                      It is hard to say that this card is better than other ones. I always used Kingston memories and they never had failed. It's good brand and for this price, I think it's worth buying.

                                        I bought this card for my wife to use in her camera and she can't stop bragging about it. The class 10 speed is fantastic for taking still pictures and then switching to video with virtually no lag time. The price was fanstastic and B&H was awesome to deal with. I received timely notifications of when the item shipped and updates along the way.
                                        Thanks!

                                          This card writes fast enough to handle the way I photograph. It's very secure within the slot on the camera and at 16GB it will handle close to 600 exposures on my 60D. Not being a bird or wildlife shooter I don't often shoot long bursts so I'm very happy with it.

                                                  This card failed during the middle of a video shoot for a longboarding sponsorship video. I lost tons of footage of the longboarder. The card was nearly new.

                                                      I have about 50 of these in rotation. Once, I did have a card become corrupted after a shoot, before the data could be offloaded. I don't know why, but after reformatting, that card has performed well. Considering the volume of video these are handling, I am pleased.
