Meet Verbatim’s new SD cards for Action Cameras and 4K recording
Stephan Jukic – June 26, 2015
As the market for 4K video recording heats up more than just about any 4K-related industry, storage space makers are also moving forward with developments that try to meet the needs of all that massive memory 4K video takes up in any storage device.
Verbatim is just one of the participants in this memory race and its newest range of Pro+ SD cards is designed squarely for use with action cameras and the company’s also new Pro range SD cards are particularly aimed at 4K video cameras of assorted types.
According to Verbatim, the new cards off UHS-I Speed Class 3 and Class 10 standards and are also capable of reading at a speed of up to 90mb/s and can even manage hefty write speeds of as much as 80MB/s. This means that the cameras are quite an ideal choice for DLSR cameras with 4K video capacity, ultra HD and HD action cameras Sony’s and Panasonic’s action offerings and for just about any other device that needs to record RAW images, ultra high definition resolutions and rapid burst shooting. The cards can of course also be used for normal Full HD cameras.
Verbatim announced the new Pro+ cards on Wednesday the 24th of June and has said that they are being offered in SHDC at a 32GB capacity and in SDXC with a much heftier 64GB capacity. Joining these cards is the Verbatim Pro range of cards, aimed specifically at 4K video shooters like DSLRs and Action cameras, and these very similar cards also come with SDHC and DXC format offerings.
These latter Pro range cards are also rated at UHD-I Speed Class 3 with the same 90MB/s read speeds but they offer slightly lower write speeds of 45MB/s. The Pros will furthermore include microSD versions for smaller recording devices such as the GoPro since these require microSD instead of Full SD.
On a final note, Verbatim is also boosting its Premium card offerings by including a new 128GB microSD and a new 256GB SD card, both of which are aimed at Full HD recording instead of 4K UHD video.
