Sony Corporation announced a range of performance CFast memory cards designed to meet the needs of professional photographers and videographers.

The G Series CFast responds to the increasing capabilities of high-end DSLR and 4K cinema-grade broadcast cameras, offering write speeds of up to 510MB/s and read speeds of up to 530MB/s.

"Joining an established range that includes Professional internal SSDs, XQD and SxS cards, as well as the world's fastest SD card, the new CFast models strengthen Sony's position as a leader in professional memory solutions, improving the shooting experience and optimising the workflow." said Romain Rousseau, senior European product manager.

Step up to industry write speeds

Professional photographers demand faster speed for continuous burst shooting of higher resolution images like RAW. With up to 510MB/s write speed, far outperforming the capabilities of existing CFast cards, G Series supports high-speed burst shooting of high resolution RAW, maximising the capability of high-end DSLR cameras.

Reliable 4K video recording with VPG130 support

As well as fast write speed, the CFast cards support VPG130 for reliable recording of Cinema-grade or high-bitrate 4K video. A minimum sustained write speed of 130MB/s is guaranteed, making these media for stable recording of professional grade 4K video such as Cinema RAW light mode.

Super-fast read speed for ultra-effective workflow

Efficient workflow is essential for professional photographers and videographers working in challenging environments to tight deadlines. With a fast read speed of 530MB/s, G Series CFast reduces the time it takes to transfer RAW files, long 4K video footage and high-resolution images to a PC.

The CFast cards have passed drop, vibration, shock and rigidity tests, making them for shooting in many different locations. They work reliably across a range of temperatures and are resistant to static. With a hard case and the company's File Rescue software included for recovering accidentally deleted photos such as RAW images and videos, professionals can shoot with confidence in the toughest conditions.

The G Series CFast 2.0 memory cards will be available in 32GB (CAT-G32), 64GB (CAT-G64) and 128GB (CAT-G128) capacities, and will be available in 1Q18.
