This product came quickly, as is always needed for me. With my 40D this product processes images as quickly as I need to cover weddings and sporting events.
With this card on Raw I can get at least 750 images.
When shooting in "large" format choice, I can get at least 1500.
Since the sensor shows 999 remaining and I download after each shoot, it may be able to hold a greater amount.
For anyone shooting photos with a camera less than 10Megs, the number of files on this card for you would be tremendous, and more than you need.
Keeping too many of your prized family photos on a card and not downloading is not such a good idea....
Sturdy product. Would certainly recommend.
The latest batch I purchased were all failures. I format all the cards in camera, and after about 1/4 of the way through, the card will cause my camera to freeze on read - only resettable with a battery reset.
Too many corrupted sectors on this batch of cards, and I just can't trust it.
If it matters: The good 8GB Kingston CF cards I own (with this green label) have a rounded rectangle around the comment lines on the back. The label is (C)2003. The bad batch of cards I have use the (C)2008 label. I can't deduce a trend based on serial#/batch#.
Good luck on your purchase. I won't be buying these particular ones again.
I bought 2 of these a few days ago, before reading the reviews here. After reading the reviews, I decided to see how it compared to my previous 2Gb Kingston 50x card.
Using my Canon Rebel XT camera, with picture setting on Large/Fine (8 megapixel photos) and in burst mode I was able to take 13 consecutive photos with this new card, and the camera completed writing to the flash card about 43 seconds after first pressing the shutter button. So yes, it will work fine for everyday shooting.
I then tried the older 50x card which I probably bought sometime around 2005. With it, I was able to take 16 consecutive photos (before it started lagging), and it completed writing all those to flash after 14 seconds. (I did both measurements 3 different times, and they all turned out pretty close)
So to make a comparison - for the 13 picts in 43 seconds, would be equivalent to 16 in 53 seconds. So the 50x card will write 16 photos in 14 seconds, the new 133x card will write 16 photos in 53 seconds.
Therefore the new card is about 4 times SLOWER than the older 50x card. Maybe someone at Kingston made a mistake and these were really 13.3x, not 133x??
The only plus to this card is its low cost and large storage size.
UPDATE: After formatting the 133x card in the camera, it is now performing comparable to the 50x card. Which that could indicate its a limitation with the camera memory interface at this point. I would up the star rating, but seems that I can't do it after the review was initially written.

Huh? Why the writing speed is only 9.9 MB/s? It should be around 20 MB/s based on 133X Compact Flash (CF) Card X-Speed Rating. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jayce Ooi
