Sony Claims Fastest SD Card
There’s currently a lot of activity happening in memory cards and Sony continues to make a bid for a bigger slice of the market, launching a new series of UHS-II speed SD devices. With a claimed writing speed of 299 MB/ second, Sony says its new SF-G series of SD cards is the fastest in the business. The maximum read speed is quoted at 300 MB/second when used in a dedicated Sony MRW-S1 card reader.
The new SF-G cards are available in 32 GB (SDHC), 64 GB (SDXC) and 128 GB (SDXC) storage capacities. Their faster data transfer rates enable shorter buffer clearing times, making these card suitable for 4K video recording applications and able to support the high-speed continuous shooting capabilities of the latest D-SLRs and mirrorless cameras.
Sony’s SF-G cards also feature a durable design with waterproof and anti-static capabilities, and are backed by Sony’s free downloadable File Rescue software for the recovery of files that may have been accidentally damaged and deleted. Pricing has yet to be announced.
