    Kingston 16GB reviews

    16GB CompactFlash Ultimate 266x Memory Card is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 223.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't work in Nikon D800 I'm sure the cards would be great if only Nikon's new $ D800 would read them. The cards work in every other device I have tried them in, including my old Nikon D300; however Nikon didn't find their way to including compatability with Kingston compact flash cards in one of their newest and most cutting edge cameras. (This is according to a customer support response from Nikon.) Unfortunately, I don't have any other devices that need a hi-speed 16 GB CF card so I will be returning the 2 cards I bought a second time. This time for a refund. B&H has been great dealing with this issue but Nikon really dropped the ball!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for photos, not for HD video on 7d. I had no problems when using this memory card to take photographs on the Canon 7d, it worked perfectly for me. But the main reason I bought the 7d was for the video feature, and that's where this card becomes unreliable. If you are planning to use the 7d to make films, I'd be very wary about purchasing this card. I used this card for an 8-hour shoot. It worked perfectly at first, but once it starts heating up, there are read/write problems. It's still a good card if you're on a tight budget, but you will lose takes, so you've either got to learn to live with that, or spend more for a better card.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 6 months At first I was very happy with purchase of 4 of this cards. I was using the cards daily on my D700 until one day one of the cards completely failed down on my, and soon after that other failed as well. I tried to format the card in the camera with no success, after that tried to format it on my computer, but also no luck. Cards were dead... I still have two of the cards working, but since two of the cards already died on me, I am thinking of trashing remaining two because of the reliability issues...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from never buy this again I purchased these cards just before a paid wedding gig. I used them in My NiKon D700 camera. I had read good reviews about this card so trusted them for the job. Unfortunaly, when I came home and loaded the pictures on my hards drive. so many images were corrupt. some very crtical ones. when I started editing good images..more bad files showed up. I am highly disappointed with this experience. I used Lexar cards before but price of these cards was so good that I bought them. I have returned these cards and bought Lexar again for future. I would say you must evaulate the cards for your camera.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product was Defective. I purchased two cards. After formatting in my D3, I noticed that one of them cards showed fewer available files that the other. After discussions with Kingston, I returned the bad card for a replacement (I had to pay the shipping). Upo receiving the new card it had the same problem. I am getting a refund now for the one card. If you purchase this card and note on the back side the numbers: 9904318-001.A01LF then this card will be bad. Otherwise, I have had many Kingston cards that are very reliable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from stopped working after one use I used this card with my new Canon 5D Mark II once. It worked fine in the camera, it was fast too. Once connected to the computer I was able to copy the photos to the hard drive. But at the end of this process the card simply stopped working. It is no longer recognised by the PC computer as a flash disk drive or a memory card - just an unknown USB port. When put into the camera, 5D recognizes it as a bad card. Attempt to format it using the camera result in an error.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value and great performance I bought one of these to get top-notch performance out of my Canon 5D Mark II. I was having problems in certain circumstance with the video feed stopping with the 133X card I was using. But I bought this new one (the 16GB model) and it's been working great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from First card to ever fail on me Good thing it was not a paid shoot. Shot a friends basketball game and the next day I got a format error and could not get the RAWs off of it.
