Removable storage keeps on getting larger and larger, especially with consumer products being able to record HD quality video and take pictures at 12 megapixel resolution. With that said many people think that 2GB cards are more than enough, but if you are shooting video that is not even close to enough space. Today we will be looking at a SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) card from Kingston. SDHC cards currently range from 4GB to 32GB; we received the 32GB version of the card. 32GB is sure a lot of space for videos and photos, let’s see what we can do with this card!

Well there really is not much to go over, I mean this is just an SD card. It comes in the typical Kingston packaging, which is extremely hard to open! On the back there is a little bit of information about the card.
The card does come in a plastic carrying case. Once out of the case we can see that this card is a 32GB card and is SDHC class 4. The different classes of SDHC cards are listed above, class 4 means this card will have a minimum data transfer rate of 4MB/sec. Also note that the 32GB card only comes in a class 4 version.
