Sony announces the launch of a range of new high performing G Series CFast 2.0 memory cards "designed to meet the needs of professional photographers and videographers". The Ultra-fast G Series CFast memory cards with up to 510MB/s write speed will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capabilities.
The new Sony CFast cards are also VPG130 compliant, meaning they get a minimum of 130MB/s sustained write speed, that should be plenty for the Canon C200's 4K Cinema Raw Light codec and also the cinema-grade high-bit rate 4K video in compressed formats.
Sony G-Series CFast 2.0 Cards Highlights
Step up to industry-leading write speeds
Professional photographers demand faster speed for continuous burst shooting of higher resolution images including RAW. With up to 510MB/s write speed, far outperforming the capabilities of existing CFast cards, Sony’s G Series supports high-speed burst shooting of high resolution RAW, maximizing the capability of high-end DSLR cameras like the Canon 1DX Mark II.
Super-fast read speed for ultra-effective workflow
Efficient workflow is essential for professional photographers and videographers working in challenging environments on tight deadlines. With a blazing fast read speed of 530MB/s, Sony’s G Series CFast dramatically reduces the time it takes to transfer RAW files, long 4K video footage and high-resolution images to a PC.
Reliable 4K video recording with VPG130 support
As well as ultra-fast read and write speeds, the new CFast cards support VPG130 for reliable recording of Cinema-grade or high-bitrate 4K video. A minimum sustained write speed of 130MB/s is guaranteed, making the new media ideal for stable recording of professional grade 4K video, such as Cinema RAW light mode with Canon C200 video cameras.
Designed for strength and reliability
The new CFast cards have passed a variety of stringent drop, vibration, shock and rigidity tests, making them perfect for shooting in many different locations. They work reliably across a wide range of temperatures and are highly resistant to static. With a hard case and Sony File Rescue software, which is available when used with a card reader in a Removable Disk configuration, the cards can recover accidentally deleted photos such as RAW images and videos, allowing professionals to shoot with confidence in the toughest conditions.
