Kingston, famous for their flash memory devices, is back with a bang thanks to their new 32GB Elite Pro SDHC flash memory card that will definitely find a place in most digital video camcorders and cameras (particularly the DSLR range). Of course, you can also use a SDHC adapter that stores anywhere from four to six of these puppies that functions as an impromptu SSD for your notebook, but that’s another story for a different day. This new 32GB SDHC card is now king of the hill where Kingston’s Elite Pro line of cards are concerned, replacing the 16GB model as top dog in the hierarchy.
Kingston’s 32GB memory card is perfect for the increasing number of high-resolution recording devices in the market, as the card can store literally thousands of photos and hours of high definition video. For example, the new 32GB Elite Pro SDHC card can capture more than 6,000 still images (with a 10MP camera) and over eight hours of video (for 6Mbps HD Extended recording).
