Kingston SD Cards & Readers (Pepcom 2018)
Kingston‘s lineup of memory cards and card readers aim to satisfy even the most demanding 4K video shooters. Three categories of memory cards signify the difference with “Good, Better and Best”:
Good – Canvas Select
– Read: 80MB/sec
– Write: 10MB/sec
Better – Canvas Go!
– Read: 90MB/sec
– Write: 45MB/sec
Best – Canvas React
Read speeds are pretty fast across their whole line, but keep an eye on the write speeds because this can be mission critical – it can mean the difference between a stalled video recording and success when it comes to writing a huge stream of data (high bitrates in 4K recording for example).
Transferring data comes next, and doing so quickly is also important. Kingston offers three products here:
- MobileLite G4 – SD and microSD card reader with USB-A 3.0
- MobileLite Duo 3C – microSD card reader with USB-A and USB-C
- Nucleum – a multi purpose HUB with 7 ports, including an SD and microSD card reader
The Nucleum hub connects via USB-C and has all the benefits that come with it. This included an HDMI port and laptop charging via USB-C (should your lappy support this function).
