Solange from Kingston Technology just alerted us to the fact that they have released and started shipping a Class 4 Secure Digital High Capacity card with a huge 16GB of storage space. Part number SD4/16GBFE is the largest in the Kingston lineup of SD cards.


Below is a snazzy shot of the Class 4 card, which makes it capable of a transfer speed of 4MB/s - this is said to be the guaranteed minimum. It is covered by Kingston's lifetime warranty if something happens to go haywire.


"Higher resolution digital cameras and increasingly popular HD video camcorders require high capacity memory cards with faster data transfer rates (DTRs) to maximize overall performance of the recording device," said Dave Lee, Flash Memory Product Manager, APAC Region, Kingston. "Our new 16GB Class 4 memory card answers the performance needs and expands Kingston's product line to provide a memory solution for every application."


Even with today's high resolution recording devices, a 16GB memory card can store literally thousands of photos and hours of high definition video. For example, the new 16GB SDHC card can capture more than 7,500* images (with a 6MP camera) and more than four hours* of video (for 6Mbps HD Extended recording).
