New Panasonic SDHC UHS-I memory cards - New SDHC UHS-I memory cards from Panasonic
Panasonic is pleased to introduce new SDHC UHS-I Memory Cards with read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 80MB/s. The new Gold cards, compliant with the SD Memory Card Specification Ver.3.01 (UHS104), are the ideal media for digital SLR cameras which requires high-speed write performance. The new cards will be globally introduced in April, 2011 with 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB capacities.
With the highest-level writing speed of up to 80MB/s, the new cards are perfect for high-speed consecutive shooting in HD quality with digital SLR cameras. When the new SDHC UHS-I Memory Cards are used with UHS-I supported digital still cameras, the number of consecutive shots will be increased to be twice of that of the current Gold models*3. The cards also allow for quick data transfer to a PC and can transfer data approx. 4 times*4 faster than the current Gold SDW series.
The new cards are also highly reliable and durable. Super Intelligent Controller (SICS) provides Power Failure Protection to protect data from sudden power failure, Refresh Function to extend the archival life over 10 times, and Smart Data Writing to minimize defect risk caused by intensive writing. They are also equipped with “Proof 5” feature (water-, shock-, magnet-, X-ray-, temperature-proof) to withstand severe conditions.
The new 8 GB (RP-SDA08G), 16 GB (RP-SDA16G) and 32 GB (RP-SDA32G) will be available in April 2011.
