“Our goal is to deliver the best possible experience so consumers can share the content that’s important to them,” said Carissa Blegen, Flash card product manager, Kingston. “Canvas cards lead the way with UHS-II and A2 app support and are durable, feature great storage capacity and are higher in speed to capture all of life’s memories without the worry of space limitations or long transfer times.”
