Verbatim recently announced a new range of SD and Micro SD memory cards called the Verbatim PRO+. The company has quoted a read speed of up to 90MB/s and a write speed of 80MB/s. This makes it sufficiently fast for 4K footage and suitable for a burst of large files. The cards are available in 32GB and 64GB (£55.49)capacities.
I used the card in both the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R II and the Canon EOS 5DS R – these cameras have 42-million-pixel and 50-million-pixel sensors respectively, making the outputted files very large. Even with these challenging cameras I found the write speed to be very acceptable and transferring images to a laptop using USB 3.0 was suitably fast too. These memory cards are also claimed to be shockproof and resistant to extreme temperatures. All in all, these are solidly performing SD cards that are fast enough to keep up with many recent high-resolution cameras.
