Toshiba Electronics Europe has refreshed its EXCERIA PROrange of SD memory cards designed for photographers that demand the ultimate in speed and performance from their equipment. Now available in Europe in capacities ranging from 16 to 128GB, the UHS-II compliant cards deliver some of the highest read/write speeds of any SD cards on the market.
The memory cards allow professional photographers to maximise the potential of their UHS-II-enabled high performance cameras. The 64, 32 and 16GB memory cards achieve maximum read speeds of 260MB/s and maximum write speeds of 240MB/s. The 128GB card supports maximum read speeds of 260MB/s and maximum write speeds of 150MB/s.
Digital cameras have made huge strides forwards in image quality and versatility, WITH cameras now enablING high resolution burst photography and 4K video. The cards enable camera buffer memory to be released quicker and enhance high speed shooting performance.
Compatible with SDA version 4.20, the cards support the UHS-II interface and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). U3 cards guarantee minimum read and write data transfer speeds of 30MB/s, three times the minimum data transfer speeds guaranteed by cards supporting the UHS-I standard.
When used with a high speed SD card reader on a USB3.0 hub, the SD cards can transfer 1,000 photographs to a PC in just 16.8 seconds, one third of the 52.5 seconds that Toshiba’s UHS-I SD card would need to transfer the same data.
