It’s been a while and I am back to share another experience, this time of a product that I recently had fun testing.
Recently Sony had announced that they have now produced the world’s fastest SD card the “SF-G Series UHS II”
Being an advertising and fashion photographer, I have often faced issues while shooting in continuous mode as the buffer would get full due to slow write speeds.
So when Sony mentioned that their latest SD card has a 299 Mb/s read and 300 Mb/s write speed, I had to personally check it out as it was too good to be true.
I tested out the SF-G series card on a Sony Alpha 99 Mark II which shoots at 12 fps and the results were absolutely beautiful.
There was absolutely no lag or buffer issues when I was shooting continuously and each frame was being written onto the card at almost the same speed in which it was being shot.
The SF-G series also comes with a specialised card reader that assists in files getting copied onto your system faster.
My verdict is that, this card is a must use for all professional photographers.
I have also made a short video of testing the SF-G Series SD card which you guys can take a look at to get an idea on how the card performs. You can view the video here
Have fun shooting.
