Sony announced it is expanding its line of SD cards with a new flagship series designed for ultra-high speed interface (UHS-I) compatibility, giving DSLR users superb speed and high performance. The new cards are available in capacities of 32GB (SF-32UX), 16GB (SF-16UX) and 8GB (SF-8UX).
The new cards offer significantly higher transfer speeds up to 94MB/s (read) and 45MB/s (write, for SF-8UX, write speed is 22MB/s), ideal for the burst shooting and HD video modes of today’s DSLR cameras and HD camcorders (based on Sony tests and dependent on host hardware) . They can also realize rapid data rates when transferring content – even large, high-resolution HD files – back to their PCs. And when used with non-UHS-I supported hardware, the new Sony cards will still maintain Class 10 speed.
The Sony UHS-I series of cards will be available in March, starting at prices of USD 44.99.
