I can get about 300 RAW files + Large JPEGS on a clean card. I shoot with a Nikon D300 which shoots @ 12.1 MP. So not bad. Write speed is not bad either. It's not SUPER fast, but it is better than paying a heck of alot more for a card that with the same amount of storage and writes twice as fast...of course that's just my opinion :)

Purchase this card from B&H. It was the cheapest for the capacity and speed advertise. The card does indeed have the capacity indicated but it does not have the speed. When photographing the same subject for the same number of shots (controlled light/studio) this card takes 50% longer than my 3 years old Sandisk Extreme III 8 GB CF to clear the buffer (on a new Canon 40D) even though both cards are rated with the same read and write speeds.

I would recommend staying with the trusted Sandisk cards...

    Comments about Kingston 8GB CompactFlash Memory Card Elite Pro 133x:

    I use this card in my D700. Yes, it's an older camera, so this speed works just fine. Have used many Kingston cards without problem or image loss. However, I tend to keep the cards as an image back-up, so I don't have to worry about erasing and re-use of these cards. At this price, I can afford to buy more as I need them. Another nice thing about these cards is that they come with a card case, so I don't have to worry about dust getting into the works during storage.

              Bought two of these from B&H for use in Sound Devices 702T. One of them exhibited problems after the first format. The other still works fine after several formats. Had to buy card saver programme to retrieve corrupted files. Thankfully it worked and I retained my client from that job. Will try to claim limited warranty on this one.

                    Well, it works better than a charm, as a charm would not be compatible with my Canon 20D. The worst thing about this card was getting it out of the blister pack. Once that was accomplished, everything just worked.

                          Nice fast card but it does not work in my Nikon D800. Formats and works perfectly in my D300 & D200. I see this as more of a Nikon problem than a Kingston issue.

                                  CF cards used for DSLR scenic photography captured as raw files. The product is affordable, provides good capacity and functions as expected.

                                        Recently purchased a Canon 40d that came without a compact flash. This has plenty of space for the number of photos we plan on taking. Great price and great product.
