Sony CFast 2.0

Sony has announced a new range of high speed CFast memory cards, with write speeds up to 510MB/s and read speeds up to 530MB/s. The memory cards will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities, beginning from the 1st quarter of 2018. Pricing is not yet known.

 

From Sony: Sony today announced the launch of a range of high performance CFast memory cards designed to meet the needs of professional photographers and videographers. The new G Series CFast responds to the ever-increasing capabilities of high-end DSLR and 4K cinema-grade broadcast cameras, offering lightning-fast write speeds of up to 510MB/s and read speeds of up to 530MB/s.[i]

“Joining an established range that includes Professional internal SSDs, XQD and SxS cards, as well as the world’s fastest SD card[ii], the new CFast models strengthen Sony’s position as a leader in professional memory solutions, improving the shooting experience and optimising the workflow.” said Romain Rousseau, Senior European Product Manager.

Step up to industry-leading write speeds

Professional photographers demand faster speed for continuous burst shooting of higher resolution images like RAW. With up to 510MB/s write speed, far outperforming the capabilities of existing CFast cards, G Series supports high-speed burst shooting of high resolution RAW, maximising the capability of high-end DSLR cameras.

Reliable 4K video recording with VPG130 support

As well as ultra-fast write speed, the new CFast cards support VPG130[iii] for reliable recording of Cinema-grade or high-bitrate 4K video. A minimum sustained write speed of 130MB/s is guaranteed, making the new media ideal for stable recording of professional grade 4K video such as Cinema RAW light mode.

Super-fast read speed for ultra-effective workflow

Efficient workflow is essential for professional photographers and videographers working in challenging environments to tight deadlines. With a blazing fast read speed of 530MB/s, G Series CFast dramatically reduces the time it takes to transfer RAW files, long 4K video footage and high-resolution images to a PC.

Designed for strength and reliability

The new CFast cards have passed a variety of stringent drop, vibration, shock and rigidity tests, making them perfect for shooting in many different locations. They work reliably across a wide range of temperatures and are highly resistant to static. With a hard case and Sony File Rescue software[iv]included for recovering accidentally deleted photos such as RAW images and videos, professionals can shoot with confidence in the toughest conditions.

Pricing and Availability

The new G Series CFast 2.0 memory cards will be available in 32GB (CAT-G32), 64GB (CAT-G64) and 128GB (CAT-G128) capacities, and will be available in 1st quarter of CY2018.
