SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-II SHDC/SDXC Memory Cards Arrive
Billed as the world’s fastest SD cards, the just recently launched SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II sd card series utilizes the most recent high-performance SD spec, UHS-II, to provide to 280MB/s (1867X) check out transfer speeds for enhanced post production workflows and as much as 250MB/s (1667X) compose speeds for constant burst-mode shooting. The cards are likewise UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) ranked for continual video capture of a minimum of 30MB/s, making them appropriate for 4K, 3D, high-bitrate Complete HD video capture along with live broadcasting.
Have you become aware of UHS-II yet? UHS-II is the ultra high speed serial bus user interface in SD Sd card Requirement Ver4.20 that provides information at 156MB/s by single lane gain access to and 312MB/s by double lane gain access to. This suggests that UHS II cards might possibly be 3 times faster than the leading UHS-I as they peak at a optimum theoretical speed of 104MB/s!
The SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II sd card are readily available in 16, 32, and 64GB capabilities:
SanDisk states that this 32GB SDHC card can hold 8 minutes of 4K video chance at 500Mbps or 80 minutes of Complete HD video at 50Mbps. This isn’t much time, so if you are intending on shooting great quality 4K video material down the roadway you’ll likely require to buy bigger capability cards or get several cards for your storage requires. We tried the SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC UHS-II card in a GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition sport electronic camera and got simply almost 90 minutes of 4K 15 FPS material prior to the cards memory filled and the battery on the GoPro ended up being low. The FujiFilm X-T1 can just take ~ 14 minute long specific motion pictures on complete HD mode, however the battery needs to last around 100 minutes with face detection off. So, while while the storage capability may not seem like it is big enough, a lot of the customer 4K electronic cameras on the marketplace today do not last that long.
Just Like a lot of SanDisk cards, this sd card comes shockproof, X-ray evidence, water resistant, and and can run in temperature levels varying from -13 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. This suggests you can take this card with you into a few of the most intense shooting conditions in the world and not need to fret about if the card had the ability to catch the shot. The compose speeds of as much as 250 MB/s permits sophisticated electronic camera functions such as constant burst, quick shooting, and RAW plus JPEG capture or 4K, 3D, and Complete HD video.
As we have actually currently discussed, the SanDisk Extreme Pro card utilizes the brand-new UHS-II requirement and has actually had extra pins contributed to the user interface to allow the greater information transfer speeds. While the normal leading row of SD card pin connections are still present, there is now a 2nd row of 8 extra pins utilized specifically to check out and compose UHS-II signals. The very first row of ports is still utilized for typical speed, high speed, and UHS-I signals, implying the cards are in reverse suitable with all SDHC/SDXC host gadgets, albeit without UHS-II efficiency. The SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-II series card has actually been enhanced for electronic cameras that support the UHS-II requirement, nevertheless utilizing this card on older host gadgets may really offer you lower efficiency than when utilizing UHS-I cards.
The spec likewise uses to microSD cards, so anticipate to see UHS-II class cards gradually ending up being the standard on mobile phones like electronic cameras, mobile phones and tablets. Complete efficiency needs a UHS-II host, which suggests you will require brand-new USB 3.0 card readers that are UHS-II certified along with electronic cameras like the FujiFilm X-T1, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 that natively support the brand-new requirement. We do not occur to have either of those electronic cameras readily available, so our screening will be restricted to simply USB 3.0 sd card reader screening.
Let’s have a look at the efficiency test results on the next page.
