Shooting HD video requires a lot of available space on a memory card. Kingston’s SDXC 128GB Class 10 memory card is a perfect solution to not running out of space while shooting your HD videos.

Since I have purchased my Canon T3i DSLR, I have increased my memory storage capacity needs quite a bit. At the same time, I have wanted to try and figure out the fastest way to transfer all my videos and pictures from the memory card to my computer for editing, etc.

Overall I think Kingston did an awesome job with this memory card. Even though I don’t see a huge performance increase from the Transcend card as well as from USB 2.0 or 3.0, the ability to have a memory card with up to 128GB of available space is great!

With this large of capapcity, running out of space while on the set shooting your videos or pictures is not something you will have to stress about as often.
