Kingston Announces 32GB Capacity Compact Flash Card

Kingston 32GB CF.jpgIn the category of every expanding memory options, Kingston has now raised the bar again; much to the delight of digital SLR users everywhere. Shooting in RAW mode with a digital SLR can burn some serious electrons with photos taking several megabytes of storage each. These photos obviously provide the best quality, but they also require the highest amount of storage.

Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway) the more of high-res pictures you take, the faster you burn through memory which forces you to swap cards frequently which can also mean missing the shot since you can't be taking pictures while you're tinkering with putting another card in the camera.

Kingston has always had a great reputation for memory and this is no exception. Here are the details on the CF Elite Pro Card 32GB.
