Panasonic will launch new SDHC Memory Cards with Class 10 speed specification in Europe and other markets from the end of May, 2009. Class 10 is a new speed specification standardized by SD Card Association as part of SD Card Specification Ver.3.0 to meet the requirement for higher resolution consecutive shooting and large-sized high definition video shooting. As an example of sequential writing of 3 frame/sec.(1 frame=3MB), the class10 card enables to write out large amounts of data continuously up until the card is fully written without missing any shots or writing stops.
The Panasonic GOLD line series is the world’s first memory cards to adopt this new speed class. The new series will be available in the following four models: RP-SDW04G (4GB) / RP-SDW08G (8GB) / RP-SDW16G (16GB) / RP-SDW32G (32GB).
