Toshiba Electronics Europe has refreshed its EXCERIA PROTM range of high-end SD memory cards designed for photographers that demand the ultimate in speed and performance from their equipment.

Now available in Europe in capacities ranging from 16GB[1] to 128GB, the new UHS-II compliant cards deliver some of the highest read/write speeds of any SD cards on the market.

EXCERIA PRO SD memory cards allow professional photographers to maximize the potential of their UHS-II-enabled[2] high-performance cameras.

The 64GB, 32GB and 16GB EXCERIA PRO SD memory cards achieve maximum read speeds of 260 MB/s and maximum write speeds of 240 MB/s. The 128GB card supports maximum read speeds of 260 MB/s and maximum write speeds of 150 MB/s. Digital cameras have made huge strides forwards in image quality and versatility, and cameras now enable high-resolution burst photography and 4K video. The new cards enable camera buffer memory to be released quicker and enhance high-speed shooting performance.

Compatible with SDA version 4.20, the new EXCERIA PRO cards support the UHS-II interface and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). U3 cards guarantee minimum read and write data transfer speeds of 30MB/s – three times the minimum data transfer speeds guaranteed by cards supporting the UHS-I standard.

When used with a high-speed SD card reader on a USB3.0 hub, the SD cards can transfer 1,000 photographs to a PC in just 16.8 seconds[3] – one third of the 52.5 seconds that Toshiba’s UHS-I SD card would need to transfer the same data.
