CompactFlash Ultimate 600x
Professional photographers need Flash memory they can count on for even the most demanding shoots. CompactFlash Ultimate 600x offers sustained write speed ratings of up to 600x, making it one of Kingston's fastest cards to support high-end digital cameras and devices. It's designed to deliver superior results with fast data transfer and support for continuous shooting
Ultra-Fast Rates
The CompactFlash 600x card features ultra-fast rates of up to 90 MB/s read and write, so you can capture more continuous, high-resolution images in less time than with traditional CompactFlash memory cards
Compatible File Types
CompactFlash Ultimate offers plenty of room for capturing and storing high-definition video and high volumes of images in RAW, JPEG, TIFF and other large file formats
"X" Speeds
Flash cards with a higher X-speed rating are designed to perform faster. The X-speed rating can also be translated into another common measurement of performance - MegaBytes (MB) per second of write speed. To determine the actual MB per second, you must know the value of "X" and do the math using the multiplier number and the value of X as claimed by the product

Kingston defines X-speed as the write speed, because users generally care more about how long it takes to write data to a Flash card when using it in a digital camera or cell phone. Typically, read speeds are higher than write speeds for Flash cards, so the write speed is more meaningful when measuring performance. As an example, Kingston's 2GB CompactFlash Ultimate card is rated at 266x; this translates to a write speed of 266 (150 KB/s) meaning 39,900 KB/s or 40 MB/s

MediaRECOVER Data Recovery Software
For added peace of mind, CompactFlash Ultimate comes with a bonus download of data recovery software from MediaRECOVER to let you recover lost or deleted files and restore corrupt files on Windows or Mac systems

MediaRECOVER is a complete digital image and file recovery utility. The program recovers your lost files including photos, audio, video, PDF's, Office Files, tax spreadsheets, etc. from hard drives and removable media used in digital cameras, PDA's and other storage devices

    Kingston 32GB reviews

    32GB CompactFlash Memory Card Ultimate 600x is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow writing, fast reading I'm a wedding photographer and use 3 pieces of Kingston Ultimate 600x CF with Canon 7D bodyes for the job. There are never apperars data loss, or error. The cards works fine. The writing speed seemed too slow in burst mode, so i made some test. Test#1: High burst mode, Manual focus, 1/8000 shutter speed. 24 RAW in 8 fps, and slow down. I switch off the camera, what indicates the remaining files for saving. After a calculation, there is 18,6 MB/s writing speed from internal camera buffer to CF card. Test#2: h2testw 1.4 memory error and speed tester application. Small, easy, free stuff. After a card format the program starts and write data to card, after that it verifies the written data. I uesed Kingston FCR-HS3 USB 3.0 card reader connected to USB3 port. All 3 card was error free, in perfect physical condition after half year usage. Approx 20.000 photos/card. Card1: 15.1MB/s write 65.7MB/s read Card2: 15.2MB/s write 65.8MB/s read Card3: 15.4MB/s write 67.1MB/s read The backup from card is very fast: 3.9 GByte / min. The writing speed to card is slow: 900 Mbyte / min. I use fast burst some time, but this writing speed in real life situations is enough for me with the 7D's internal buffer's help.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as fast as the competition This card is not as fast as the Lexar 600x. I replaced the first one as it was more like a 200x or even slower. The new card is closer to a 400x, but still not matching my 600x Lexar. I tested them in each of my 5D Mark ii, shooting at exactly the same time, same settings, and the Lexar lasted longer before buffering. Cheap and it shows

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT RECOMMENDED if you need a fast card Not fast when used with my Canon 7D. Saves much slower than my Lexar and Sandisk 300x cards. Only marginally faster than my 133x cards. Would not recommend this if you need a fast card. Very dissappointed with is product as it is rated at 600x

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Card did not work I shoot with a Canon 5d Mark ll and do a lot of TV set photography. I received the Kingston 32GB Card this afternoon and before the card was used I formatted the card with my camera. I noticed the card showed 999 available shots to shoot and as I was doing my test the camera did not show a countdown of available shots left on the card. I had shot 30 Raw files and the camera still showed 999. I then put in a Lexar 16GB 300X card and the countdown system was working with the Lexar card plus the Kingston card has a much slower write speed than the Lexar 300X cards. I am in the process of returning this card. I do not feel comfortable using the Kingston card on my job assignments and I will stick with the Lexar brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Capacity for the Money This is a great compact flash card for the money. I have not used it for video yet and that is not why I purchased it. For stills, at a multi-burst rate, it is fast and less expensive than other brand comparable cards. I have stored many shots and am impressed with the speed and quality. One note, it was supposed to come with a file recovery program on the card but it was not contained on my card. I am unsure if it was omitted as an isolated occurrence and since I transfer to a HD frequently, it did not really matter to me. Since it was supposed to have the program and was absent, I thought other may want to know it. What is important is the performance. For still shots and for the price, I highly recommend the Kingston card. I have at least one more on my list before my next big photo outing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from ... bad product While downloading 1,200 RAW photos from a recent photo shoot, the card stopped working. Despite repeated attempts to transfer the photos, the photos will not transfer. I used three different card readers with no success. Considering how much I paid for this card, I would have expected it to last at least once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Bargain!!! These cards from Kingston are a fraction of the cost of other manufacturers/names and they work perfect!! I get great write times to them when shooting rapid fire RAW on my 7D (8fps). No qualms about ordering more of them... (I'm up to 14 of these cards now in prep for a long haul African Safari trip)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best memory Kingston is a manufacture of premium memory, the only thing you pay more for sandisk and lexar for is all the trade show booths and big ads in the photo mags. This is the best card for the lowest price. I use all Canon 1d pro cameras and the card never lags behind.
