The SanDisk microSD can hold up to 14 hours of 4K video
The SD card offers amazing transfer speeds and great footage for 4K video plus 256GB’s worth of memory storage.
The transfer data rate can hit 100MBps with a write speed of 90MBps which is a wonderful feeling If you may ask me. A good SD card such as this offers a lot of opportunities for 4K video lovers.
SanDisk is also planning for an “ultra-version” version with a slightly lower read speed, which is targeting the mainstream such as mobile smartphones.
The Ultra-version will be able to hold over 24 hours of full HD video which is still a wonderful feature to have with continuous and ever growing age of video formats.
Based on their website, these are features for their microSD’s as listed;
|Capacity||256 GB||128 GB||64 GB||32 GB|
|Read Speed||up to 160 MB/s||up to 160 MB/s||up to 160 MB/s||up to 160 MB/s|
|Write Speed||up to 140 MB/s||up to 150 MB/s||up to 150 MB/s||up to 150 MB/s|
The company also has 512GB version of the same microSD card available.
The Ultra will go on sale in August for $150, while the Extreme will debut at $200 sometime in Q4 2016.
The microSD is waterproof, temperature-proof, shock proof, and X-ray proof as said by the company.
