Kingston 512GB SDXC Card Review (Class 10 UHS-1) – Size Matters


For our real world testing, we will be comparing how long it takes for our Canon 6D’s image burst buffer to offload onto the cards after it fills, as well as continuous bursts before slowing. For standardization and comparison, the camera settings will be shooting at ISO 100, 1/160th of a second, aperture f/4.


With the Kingston 512GB SDXC Card, I was able to take a total of 20 image burst before burst speed started to stutter and slow down. The time it took for the buffer to offload to the card after the slowdown was 7 seconds. Then I was able to shoot another 20 images again after that.  Considering the capacity of the card, this is an excellent result when compared to other cards containing only a fraction of available storage space.


The Kingston Class 10 UHS-1 512GB SDXC Card is a great addition to the avid photographers tool chest.  Its high-capacity and value is matched with transfer speed highs of 92MB/s read and 82MB/s write which is well above posted specifications.  Not only will this card be excellent for professional photography needs, but also, it will provide stutterless recording of 1080p HD and 3D videos as well.

Adding to that the fact that the Kingston 512GB SDXC Card comes with a lifetime warranty, and finding anything else with this performance, value and guarantee anytime soon just may be rather difficult. For now though, there is no doubt whatsoever where the Kingston 512GB SDXDC Card will be calling its new home!
