Sony Announced Tough CFexpress Memory Cards (Max Read: 1700 MB/s, Max Write:1480 MB/s)

Sony now also officially announced their first tough series Type-B CFexpress memory cards today. Sony Tough CFexpress cards available for 128GB, 256GB, 512GB versions, now available for pre-order at Adorama/B&H Photo Video.

Ultra-fast with read speeds up to 1700 MB/s and write speeds of 1480 MB/s, these cards are designed to handle the latest generation of video and stills cameras. 4K raw video, high-speed continuous shooting, and many more functions are about to get a boost from this format. Sony put its own “TOUGH” spin on it, as well—these cards are greater than 3x more resistant to bending than a conventional card and able to withstand drops of up to 15 feet. It’s also resistant to extreme temperatures, X-rays, electrostatic, and UV lighting. Offering further protection, File Rescue recovery software can be downloaded for recovering lost or even accidentally deleted files and Media Scan Utility can be used to automatically scan CFexpress cards and inform you of the flash memory condition.
