Sony Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX - fastest Memory Stick

In the video, and photo area CompactFlash and SDHC memory cards are the most common, which apparently Sony can not stop them, but to expand its Memory Stock Portfolio. Sony was forced to implement more for notebooks and other devices to support SDHC cards, because the market is now time to decide what is necessary. Nevertheless, Sony has now probably the fastest memory stick under the name of Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX disclosed. The new cards come with a data transfer rate of 50MB / s specified. These values ​​are provided, however, for the burst mode, where many frames need to be continuously stored, as is the case with fast photo and video recordings. He shall be able to save 190 JPEG files in a minute.

This value seems natural to be high, but if one considers that a professional sports camera to shoot 8.5 (Canon EOS 1D Mark II) to 10 pictures (Canon EOS 1D Mark IV) in the second can, that would be 510-600 images per minute . This value reaches the card, even if it is called a burst mode.

Furthermore, Sony stated that the card is still on fast data transfer from. In my own tests could transfer a 32 GB Sony AVCHD movie in 11 minutes, which should last twice with a SDHC card so long. Sony does not give any details but said the comparison was against the fastest on the market SDHC card made​​.

In the memory you have the choice between 8, 16 and 32 GB models, the new Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX. As the availability of May is given, after which an immediate availability of 50 MB / s should expect versions. The prices remain as before, so you get more for your money.
