Sony has launched its SF-G Series of SD cards, which as per the company’s claims, are the world’s fastest SD cards with write speeds of up to 299MBps. Apart from the impressive write speeds, the SD cards also offer read speeds up to 300MBps. The cards (available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB sizes) will be available in March. The company has not announced the pricing for the cards as of now but might announce it closer to the release date.
The cards are ideal for burst mode shooting and recording 4K video. To keep the cards writing as fast as possible, Sony has developed an algorithm to “prevent loss of speed in data writing” when burst shooting.
“Available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities, the SF-G Series offers options that ensure high-performance, high speed and reliable shooting,” company’s Viviano Cantu was quoted as saying. The company will be pairing a memory card reader with the cards to help them transfer large volumes and file sizes to a computer very quickly.
The new SD cards are also shock-proof, temperature-proof, waterproof, and X-ray proof, apart from having anti-static capabilities. Further Sony’s free downloadable File Rescue software allows users to recover photos and videos, including RAW images and 4K XAVC-S video files that might have been accidentally damaged or deleted.
