New Delhi, 22nd October, 2018: Sony India recently expanded its range of SF-G Series with the launch of World’s toughest SD card – UHS-II SD card. The newest addition to the series comes with enhanced features specially designed for professional photographers, DSLR and mirrorless camera users and videographers. The new SF-G series TOUGH specification range combines the world’s fastest read and writes speeds with an ultra-rugged design that is bend proof to 180N and drop proof to 5 metres. For photographers who are fighting against the elements to get the perfect shot, the SF-G series TOUGH specification range of SD cards are also waterproof with an IPX8 rating and dustproof with an IP6X rating.
World’s toughest SD card is 18x bend proof and drop proof with World’s first one-piece moulding structure
The new SF-G series TOUGH specification range of SD cards are 18 times stronger than the SD standard[ix] with world’s first monolithic structure (one-piece moulding, no empty space in the card) and materials of high-grade hardness, unlike conventional SD cards with a thin, 3-part ensemble. They are protected against typical physical damage that can affect conventional SD cards such as a broken plastic casing, broken data protection lock and broken connector ribs. Offering an effective balance, the SF-G series TOUGH specification is more resistant to bending and easy to break parts are removed entirely and has been engineered by Sony to deliver the best balance of hardness and toughness
