Romain Rousseau, European Product Marketing Manager told PhotoBite: “As the continuous shooting of higher-resolution images and adoption of 4K video with DSLR and mirrorless camera increases, the inherent need for larger, faster and more reliable cards becomes apparent. Thanks to the SF-G series, we continue to show our commitment to providing a full range of extremely high-performance media devices to professional photographers and enthusiasts, maximising their camera performances”
Sony’s SD products are highly reliable and durable and offer such features as water proofing and anti-static protection which help keep your precious contents safe.

In conjunction with the new card, Sony is introducing a new memory card reader.

The new card reader offers an in-built SuperSpeed USB [USB3.1 Gen.1] standard A port for cable-free connection so that files can be copied faster than copying through the regular SD slot on a computer.
