The Kingston Canvas Go! is a U3 UHS-I SD card by Kingston. This is their flagship UHS-I card now.
Kingston has shuffled around the branding of their cards, so if you have older Kingston cards, you may notice things are a little different now.
The Kingston Canvas Go! took the place of the Canvas React, and now the Canvas React is the UHS-II flagship v90 card. The slower Kingston Select card now sits where the Canvas Go! used to be and is now the slower UHS-I card.
When looking at reading and write speeds the Kingston CanvasGo! performs very well with performance fairly similar results to other mid-range brands such as Verbatim Pro+, or the Sony U3 95MB. The Delkin Black, Sandisk Extreme and Extreme Plus performed a touch faster than this card, but all the other U3 UHS-I cards underperform this card. Making this a good UHS-I card if you can find it at a competitive price.
Kingston Canvas Go! U3 Review
When tested in the Sandisk UHS-I USB-C reader, this card clocked in a reading speed of 99.6MB/s which is one of our fastest UHS-I cards with this spec. When looking are write speeds we saw an average of 82.5MB/s. Not bad, but some of the top cards can get closer to 90MB/s.

Kingston Canvas Go! For Video
When looking at this card for 4k or even 8k video, the CanvasGo! only has a rating of U3, this means you’ll be limited to a minimum guaranteed write speed of 30MB/s or 240Mbps. This is fine for most midrange cameras today, but many of the flagship cameras are now recording at bitrates faster than this and you’ll likely need to move up to UHS-II cards to get the most out of those cameras.
