Kingston SDXC UHS-I U3 64GB Memory Card

To go along with the new Panasonic GH4 4K camera that will be announced later tonight / early tomorrow, Kingston is first out of the gate with its official announcement of a new SDHC/SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 card in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities. The new Speed Class 3 card guarantees minimun write speeds of 30MB/s.

The minimum write speed of these cards translates to roughly 240Mbps, which fits well within the max on-board data rate of the Panasonic GH4′s 4K capture at 100Mbps for its IPB .mov/.mp4 4K capture and 200Mbps for its ALL-Intra .mov and .mp4 HD capture. Additionally, the new Kingston card provides max speeds of 90MB/s read and 80MB/s write.

Pricing isn’t all that bad either, considering the performance they offer. The 16GB cards run around $40 street and the 64GB cards are around $105 street. Check them out here on Amazon.com.
