Sony’s new SF-G Series of SD cards will have write speeds of up to 299MB/s. The quick write speed supports maximum performance of digital imaging devices, contributing to longer continuous shooting of high-resolution images with UHS-II supporting cameras. It also contributes to a shorter buffer clearing time so users never miss a critical moment. Using Sony’s algorithm, … Continue reading Sony SD cards with huge write speeds
