Kingston Technology, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is increasing the write speed of its CompactFlash Ultimate memory cards to 266x. This is twice the minimum sustained write speed previously available in the Ultimate line. Kingston CF Ultimate cards will also have an added feature of free MediaRecover data recovery software that serves as a recovery tool to help restore lost, deleted or corrupted image files.
Jim Selby, Product Marketing Manager EMEA, Kingston Technology comments, “Photographers using digital SLR cameras are looking for faster card write speeds to capture life’s moments as they happen without interruption. Kingston’s new CompactFlash Ultimate 266x memory cards maximise a digital camera’s performance, delivering the speed and capacity necessary to complete even the most challenging assignments.”
“MediaRecover allows photographers to focus on what matters most – creating great images,” said Korey Bachelder, president, MediaRecover. He continues, “Our recovery solution is easy to use and gives photographers added peace of mind. MediaRecover’s partnership with Kingston Technology is a win-win for us and consumers.”
The MediaRecover recovery solution software is available as a download from Kingston Technology’s website to aid in the reclamation of lost, deleted or corrupted files and is compatible with either Windows or Mac operating systems.
Available in 2, 4 and 8Gb capacities, Kingston’s CompactFlash Ultimate cards offer room to capture and store high volumes of images in RAW, JPEG, TIFF and other large file formats. As with all Kingston Technology Flash memory cards, CompactFlash Ultimate cards are backed by a 24/7 live technical support.
