Panasonic Unveil 64Gb and 48Gb SDXC Memory Cards


Panasonic has followed Toshiba’s trailblazing lead and introduced a new 64GB SDXC memory card, released today in conjunction with their new 48Gb SDXC memory card. Billed by the company as “Panasonic’s largest-sized GOLD cards with Class 10 speed specification,” they come with a maximum data transfer speed of up to 22Mb/s.

The 64GB version can record up to eight hours and 30 minutes of video

One Panasonic PR rep took a deep breath in before telling the world… “The Panasonic 64Gb SDXC is ideal for recording AVCHD High Definition video, high-resolution, or even raw still photos. It can record up to eight hours and 30 minutes of video, and when recording in 1920 x 1080i in HE mode the SDXC Memory Card can hold approximately 27 hours and 30 minutes of footage. The 48Gb SDXC Memory Card and can hold 6 hours and 20 minutes of HD video content recorded in HA mode and 20 hours and 20 minutes when recorded in HE mode,” added the press release.

Panasonic GOLD line Memory Cards, they say, last longer and their new “Super Intelligent Controller means that flash memories are automatically refreshed with error corrections, thus preventing data damages and providing longer lifetime”. The new SDXC Memory Cards also include the nifty little idea of a new technology designed to minimize accidental corruption caused by a power interruption, such as the memory card being removed while data is being transferred.

Being released on 19 February, the US prices are the only ones currently available, and the damage is as follows – $550 (€ 389) for the 48GB and $700 (€ 495) for the 64GB.
