Sony Corporation is releasing their new SF-G series TOUGH UHS-II SD cards
Sony has taken the wraps off a new set of SD cards designed for the adventurous outdoors photographer.
The SF-G memory cards are bend proof to 180N, drop-proof to 5 meters, water resistant with an IPX8 rating and dustproof with an IP6X rating. To achieve these characteristics the cards characteristic a one-piece molding shape and a ribless and switchless design. In addition, they are X-ray Proof, magnet proof, anti-static and temperature proof.
In line with Sony, the reason those cards are so much stronger than their opposition is an all-new approach of production. The SF-G TOUGH specification cards use the ‘international’s first monolithic shape’ for SD cards, a one-piece moulding that leaves no empty space within the cards and way they aren’t at risk of commonplace SD card put on-and-tear issues like broken plastic casing or broken connector ribs. This one-piece shape is likewise what creates the sealing that makes the cards water resistant and dustproof, with ratings of IPX8 and IPX6 respectively.
In any other fine touch, Sony has also given the cards a brilliant, different yellow and black layout, making them smooth to spot even if you were to drop them while on an outdoor shoot inside the pouring rain.
