Sony 128GB SDXC UHS-I U3 Card for $69.95 – Deal Alert

Sony 128GB SDXC Speed Class 3 Memory Card

B&H has the Sony 128GB SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 memory card for $69.95 (reg. $121.95). This card has a max read speed of 94MB/s and a max write speed of 45MB/s. Compare this model to Sony’s lower tier 128GB SDXC UHS-1 card, which offers only a max read speed of 40MB/s but there’s no details on the max write speed. The lower tier card is also on sale but is only $3 cheaper.

You want the Speed Class 3 card for $69.95. These cards with Speed Class 3 ratings are compatible for 4K recording in cameras like the Panasonic GH4 and LX100.

You can see both cards for the sake of comparison here at B&H Photo. However, if you are buying one, get the card that says 94MB/s on the front. For $3 more at these sale prices, it is a heckuva deal.

Note that this deal expires November 19.

Jason says that he “has shot with Nikon his entire life and professional career. He switched to Sony in July 2014 (not due to a sponsorship) and hasn’t looked back since.”

Sony is obviously gaining ground on Canon and Nikon, and the Sony A7 series has made huge strides for the mirrorless camera market. What do you DSLR shooters think about Jason’s claims? Are you considering a switch to mirrorless, Sony or otherwise?
