Toshiba has announced a new line of Exceria SD cards, which are currently available in sizes up to 64GB – with a 128GB model coming in January 2015. The new cards are UHS-I Speed Class 3 cards, which means they provide a minimum write speed of 30MB/s and are capable of recording 4K video on many current 4K cameras.
The new cards also provide read speeds up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 60MB/s.
Several sizes are available – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB – and range from $59.99 up to $179.99. Check them out here on Amazon.com.
Spider Holster has announced two new additions to its family of products – the Memory Card Organizer and Medium Lens Pouch.
The Medium Lens Pouch follows the Spider Holster Large Lens Pouch and accomodates short professional zoom lenses (e.g., Canon 24-70mm f/2.8, etc.). The Memory Card Pouch holds up to 6 CF cards and 3 SD cards. Both accessories can be carried on any belt, so you don’t have to have a special Spider Holster system in order to use these.
The Medium Lens Pouch retails for $65, while the Memory Card Organizer retails for $35. You can find Spider Holster products here at B&H Photo.

Transcend has launched two new product lines of SD cards with UHS-I Speed Class 3 ratings, which provide a minimum sustained write speed of 30MB/s.

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. [Read more…]
