Sony Finally Announces Pricing and Release Dates For ‘G Series’ XQD Cards
Back in September, Sony announced their latest line of XQD cards – the ‘G’ Series – which combines blazing fast speeds and higher storage capacity to form the ultimate storage media for 4K videographers. Sony has finally announced the pricing and availability for the new cards.
The new Sony G Series XQD cards come in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variations, all capable of up to 400MB/s transfer speeds. Unfortunately, the only way you can take advantage of these cards is if you own a Nikon D4/D4s or one of Sony’s new 4K video cameras. But with speeds like this, I don’t see why more cameras don’t adopt them in the future.
Each card also comes with a new USB 3.0 card reader, so if your editing machine has USB 3.0 then you can take advantage of some super fast file transfers from your card to the computer. Pretty impressive.
If you happen to own a D4/D4s or have one of Sony’s new FS7 4K cameras pre-ordered, you can now pre-order these new XQD cards over on B&H and get them as soon as they start shipping on November 3rd. They start at $163.50 for the 32GB model, $363.95 for the 64GB model, and $799 for the 128GB model.
