SanDisk unveils SDXC card22 February 2010 17:55:21
Memory card maker SanDisk has announced the release of its highest ever capacity SD card.
The 64GB SDXC comes with a Class 4 speed rating, reaching read speeds of up to 15MB/s.
It uses the latest SD 3.0 specification which allows for greatly increased storage capacity, making SanDisk's new card ideal for storing large media files, such as HD videos, and transferring them to computer hard drives.
Susan Park, director of retail product marketing at SanDisk, said: "The 64GB SanDisk Ultra SDXC card delivers the speed and capacity consumers need for extended HD video recording and improved rapid shooting of still images.
"The card is an ideal complement for recently-announced SDXC-compatible cameras and camcorders."
SanDisk points out that because of the state-of-the-art technology the card uses, not all digital cameras and camcorders will be compatible.
However, it predicts that many upcoming products will support the SDXC card format.
One manufacturer to recently unveil camcorders with SDXC support is Panasonic, whose new 700 series is compatible with the new technology.
