Very good 4G card. Used it on my Canon XT and it works nicely. Fast writing speed with my Canon XT. Excelent card for the price. Recommend it to everyone!

I have been very happy with my Kingston cards. I use them (2x2GB, 1x4GB) in my Canon 5D, Nikon D200 and Nikon D70. Over the course of the last wedding season I put nearly 10,000 files on the Kingstons and never had one corrupted image. SanDisk is the only other CF cards I use after loosing many files on Lexar's. My only minor complaint is that at 45x they are a bit slow to read and write compared to SanDisk ExtremeIII's and Ultra II's. If you really blast away and get to the end of your buffer (which I rarely do) it will take the card longer to write than you would expect. This has only happened to my one time and that was because I was shooting 20 RAW image sequences of flower tosses. Downloading the cards takes slightly longer too, though a 4GB card only takes about 3.5 minutes on a USB 2.0 reader. I buy almost all Kingston's now because they are reliable, the price is great and their speed limitations do not affect the way I shoot.
