SD Cards are commonly used in the world of digital media due to their low cost and ease of use since there are so many compatible already card readers integrated within desktop and laptop computers.
However, as you start to get to the higher-end of the photo and video camera market, many companies utilize a different type of media mainly due to SD cards being notoriously slow when it comes to reading/writing compared to more expensive alternatives such as C-Fast 2.0 or XQD cards.
While this has been the case for the last few years, it may soon be changing as new technology emerges giving more power to SD cards. Sony's newest SF-G line of media takes the traditional SD card design while offering impressive 300MB/s read and 299MB/s write speeds.
The cards support these blazing fast speeds with any camera that support UHS-II making them ideal for shooting 4K video or long bursts in photography without running into major buffering issues. Making for even more value, the cards are waterproof, shockproof, temperature resistant and X-Ray proof.
At launch, Sony will offer three storage size variations: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB although no pricing or release details have been made available as of yet.
