Im posting this for several reasons but mostly to save others from a potential headache.
In a nutshell, the Kingston 16GB CF card does NOT work with the Canon 1DMkIII or any 1D for that matter according to their website. This was the first time Ive ever heard that a specifric card could have compatibility issues with certain cameras.
I purchased a Kingston 16GB CF from Adorama on Nov 28th (2+months ago). A lil over a week later I receive card and noticed it doesnt work properly. Adorama tells me to send it to Kingston, Kingston sends me another card which doesnt work and find out for the first time about this compatability problem. They tell me to send it back to retailer for refund. Adorama is telling me they cant take it back since it's been opened AND it's not the original card.
Can you see how much fun this is yet?
So Im basically screwed with a card that wont work with MY specific camera....NICE.
Adoram has lost me for good and Kingston wont get my $$$ anytime soon either.
Thnx for listening to my rant.
Oh...if there is anyone out there who knows this card will work on their camera and have two 8GB cards to trade me for it....shoot me an email!!!
