The megapixel count on even consumer-level digital cameras is quickly on the rise, so that also means that file sizes are starting to shoot through the roof. Kingston wants to make sure that you have enough room for all of those precious memories, and they recognize that it can be a pain having to haul around several memory cards just to be able to shoot an extended birthday party.
Myself, I’m pretty satisfied with the 4GB SDHC memory card that I have inserted in my Canon, but some people take more pictures (and videos) than I do. As such, Kingston has just unleashed a monstrous 16GB Class 4 SDHC memory card. The Class 4 indicates that this card guarantees a minimum data transfer rate of 4MB/sec, though real world tests will probably exceed this figure by a considerable amount.
Considering the amount of space shoved into the postage stamp-sized memory card, you just might be inclined to plop down the $231 asking price for the Kingston 16GB SDHC memory card. It sure beats having four 4-giggers.
