ProGrade Digital Announces New Weatherized SD Cards

ProGrade Digital has announced a new line of weatherized SD cards for high performance video applications.

The top of the line 256GB UHS-II SDXC Memory Card from ProGrade Digital features a storage capacity of 256GB and takes advantage of the UHS-II bus to support maximum read speeds of 200 MB/s and maximum write speeds of 80 MB/s.

This card has also been designed with the V60 Video Speed Class rating, which guarantees minimum write speeds of at least 60 MB/s, allowing the card to be optimized for 4K, 3D, and full HD video capture, as well as raw photos and rapid-fire bursts.

UHS-II cards achieve their speed through an extra row of pins and while this card has been designed for cameras that are UHS-II/V60 compatible, it may be used in devices that do not support UHS-II/V60. The card will default to the device's speed class and bus rating, such as UHS-II and V30, which supports minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s, or UHS-I and U3, which also supports minimum write speeds of 30 MB/s.

If a device does not support U3, this card is compatible with the U1 and Class 10 standards, each of which guarantee minimum write speeds of 10 MB/s.

Built for extreme conditions, ProGrade Digital's 256GB UHS-II SDXC Memory Card is able to withstand temperatures from -13 to 185-degrees Fahrenheit, allowing users to take the card into extreme environments, such as snow and deserts. A built-in write protect switch helps to safeguard the content from being erased.

The cards can record full HD, 3D and 4K video. Prices range from $54.95 for 64GB up to $189.99 for 2350GB.
