Here are several deals on memory cards and readers available this week.
SanDisk has announced a new 200GB microSDXC UHS-I card designed for mobile devices, besting the size of its previously largest 128GB card.
The new card delivers of to 90MB/s read speed (unknown write speed) and will be available in the second quarter of 2015 for $399.99.
microSD cards are growing at a bigger rate than any other memory card format thanks to mobile devices. According to IDC, seven out of 10 images captured by consumers are from smartphones and tablets.
SanDisk has announced a new line of Extreme PRO microSD cards with transfer speeds up to 95MB/s.
The card has a UHS-I bus and Speed Class 3 rating, which has been the minimum rating for 4K video capture in many recent 4K-capable cameras. The U3 rating means that the cards will deliver a minimum sustained write speed of 30MB/s.
The SanDisk Extreme Pro microSD UHS-I card is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities and ranges in price from $79.99 to $299.99. Watch for them here at B&H Photo.
SanDisk’s new high-speed Extreme Pro UHS-II cards are now available for pre-order.

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…]
