Sony model ideal upgrade for high performance digital cameras and HD camcorders
As files get bigger, so the pressure for flash memory grows.
The latest offering from Sony Recording Media & Energy is one solution for users needing high capacity and high speed data transfer.
The Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX comes with 4GB or 8GB capacity and a read speed of 20MB/second (15MB/second write).
This makes it more than capable of coping even with the strain of HD video.
When used with the supplied USB adaptor for maximum speed, it can shorten data transfer time by one-third compared to Sony’s Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2).
The provision of a USB adaptor as a standard accessory also makes it very simple to transfer data onto a PC or notebook.
Also useful is the free, downloadable Memory Stick Data Rescue Service which can quickly recover deleted photographs and files.
The Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX uses an 8-bit parallel interface to achieve this level of performance and comes with a 10 year warranty.
It will be available from October 2008.
