Kingston 32GB Elite Pro
Kingston today has set a new ceiling for its storage with a 32GB version of its Elite Pro SDHC card. The capacity is enough to store as many as 6,000 10-megapixel JPEG shots or six hours of low-bitrate HD video; users of Canon's new VIXIA camcorders can still shoot nearly three hours of full-quality footage. The card is fast enough to handle both formats without stuttering with a guaranteed Class 4 (4MB per second, or 32Mbps) transfer speed.
The new capacity for the Elite Pro is already enroute and will sell for $308 when it arrives. Previous capacities between 2GB and 16GB are also available and sell for less, though the company hasn't said whether prices are dropping for the reduced storage.
