SanDisk’s new high-speed Extreme Pro UHS-II cards are now available for pre-order.

Recall that this new line gets its major speed boost from the UHS-II bus interface. Most SD-compatible cameras currently on the market support UHS-I, at best. The only camera so far to support UHS-II is the new Fuji X-T1.

The new SanDisk UHS-II cards offer write speeds up to 250MB/s and read speeds up to 280MB/s. The Speed Class 3 rating delivers a minimum sustained write speed of 30MB/s, which is relevant to video shooters since it allows capture of the compressed 4K video formats we are starting to see on cameras. Expect this to become a bigger theme this year.

The new SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-II cards ship in April in 16GB to 64GB capacities for $75 to $245. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
