A fast SD card suitable for 4K video recording
SanDisk today announced the Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC UHS-II card, which the company is quick to point out is the fastest SD card on the planet. The new card blazes a trail with up to 250MBs/s write speeds for continuous burst mode shooting and up to 280MB/s read speeds. It also boasts a the UHS Speed 3 rating, meaning it’s certified for 4K, Full HD, and 3D video recording chores.
The fast write performance allows photographers with fancy new DSLR cameras and pro video recorders to capture high resolution content, such as taking RAW snapshots in succession and sustained video capture of 30MB/s, SanDisk says.
“The new SanDisk Extreme Pro SD UHS-II card shatters the existing barrier of UHS-I limitations, delivering speeds up to three times faster than current cards,” said Susan Park, director, product marketing, SanDisk. “As leaders in the flash storage industry, our goal is to deliver the fastest memory cards on the market, enabling next generation cameras to take advantage of new levels of performance. This is another example of our legacy of innovation and technology leadership in the digital imaging and video industries.”
SanDisk is currently taking pre-orders for the new card. It’s available in 16GB to 64GB capacities ranging in price from $120 to $300. You can also pre-order SanDisk’s new Extreme Pro SDHC/SDXC UHS-II Card Reader/Writer for $50. Both the reader/writer and cards are expected to be available in April.
