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. [click to continue…]
B&H has SanDisk Extreme CF cards for up to $250 off. These are the older 100MB/s cards. The newer 160MB/s cards cost quite a bit more now. For example, the 32GB 160MB/s cards are $134.95, while the 32GB 100MB/s cards are on sale for $89. I’m not sure if these are being discontinued or not, but B&H notes that there is only a limited supply of these cards at this price. Check them out here at B&H Photo.

SanDisk has released new UHS-II SD cards with write speeds up to 250MB/s and read speeds up to 280MB/s. 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; however, we are just starting to see new cameras with UHS-II support (like the Fuji X-T1).
The new UHS-II bus interface offers the ability to build cards with up to 312MB/s transfer speeds, which is a big jump from the maximum theoretical speeds on the UHS-I interface at 104MB/s. [click to continue…]
