February 13, 2008 The options for consumers looking to boost storage capacity for their increasingly sophisticated Camcorders just keep getting better. In the latest development, Panasonic has announced it will release a 32 Gigabyte SD High Capacity (SDHC) Memory Card with Class 6 speed specification in April 2008.
The new USD$699 RP-SDV32GU1K SDHC Memory Card can record up to 12 hours of 1440 x 1080i High Definition video (based on the use of the company's HDC-SD9 Camcorder in HE mode) and like existing Panasonic Cards, can operate in temperatures ranging from -13°F to +185°F (-25°C to +85°C).
Class 6 speed specification means that the cards have a maximum data transfer speed up to 20MB/s. The card also incorporates a new user-friendly labeling feature, which allows users to write titles or comments directly onto labels on the front and back of the card.
