SPEEDY MEM­ORY

Sony In­tro­duced New XQD and SD Cards

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

Both the Nikon D5 and D500 sup­port the new XQD mem­ory card, but those who have been fol­low­ing the lat­est de­vel­op­ments would have known that there aren’t many XQD mem­ory cards out there. For­tu­nately, Sony also un­veiled its new XQD cards dur­ing CES 2016.

The new se­ries from Sony is called the XQD-M se­ries, and it pro­vides read speeds up to 440MB/s and write speeds up to 150MB/s. With this amount of speed, you’ll be able to fully uti­lize the burst mode of any cam­era that sup­ports the XQD for­mat, which cur­rently con­sists of only the Nikon D500 and D5. In ad­di­tion, tests have also in­di­cated that you can backup 64GB worth of data in ap­prox­i­mately three min­utes when us­ing Sony’s lat­est card reader tech­nol­ogy.

Apart from the XQD-M se­ries, Sony also re­leased the SF-M SD card se­ries that are UHS-II cer­ti­fied, al­low­ing them to pro­vide read speeds up to 260MB/s and write speeds up to 100MB/s.

While both se­ries may of­fer dif­fer­ent lev­els of per­for­mance, they do have some­thing in com­mon, and that’s high dura­bil­ity and de­pend­abil­ity. They’re dust, mag­net, and X-ray proof, and have a coat­ing that makes them re­sis­tant to static elec­tric­ity dam­age.

In the event you ac­ci­den­tally delete the con­tent within, you can down­load an app called File Res­cue from Sony to re­cover RAW im­ages, MOV files, and 4K XAVC-S videos.

To take ad­van­tage of the speedy trans­fer speeds of the new cards, Sony also in­tro­duced the MRW-E90, which is the world’s first XQD/SD card reader that sup­ports the Su­per­Speed USB 3.1 in­ter­face.

Sony’s new SF-M cards are UHS-II cer­ti­fied. The XQD-M se­ries of­fers read/write speeds up to 440MB/s and 150MB/s, re­spec­tively.
