About The Sony 128GB TOUGH SD Card
***PLEASE NOTE: Sony have found an issue that with some SD memory cards of SF-M series, SF-M series TOUGH specification and SF-G series TOUGH specification, recorded data on the card may be damaged or a data may not be recorded correctly on the card when shooting movies using cameras compatible with video speed class of V60/V90. To address this issue Sony are implementing a free replacement program for affected SD memory cards which can be found here.
Addressing the needs of photographers who are reliant upon their photographs remaining safe when their SD cards are removed from the camera, the new SF-G series TOUGH specification range combines the world’s fastest read and write 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.
The new SF-G series TOUGH specification range of SD cards are 18 times stronger than the SD standard with world’s first monolithic structure (one-piece molding, 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. This has been achieved through a new means that it is the world’s first rib-less SD card with no write protection switch. These developments ensure that 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. Completely sealed with one-piece molding structure, no waterdrop, dust or dirt is not allowed to come into the card, meeting highest grade of waterproof (IPX8) and dustproof(IP6X).
In an industry trend, driven by Sony, full-frame mirrorless cameras such as the α9 and α7 series are packing in more and more performance in both stills and video performance. These high-end cameras rely on fast memory cards to maximise their performance and with professional photographers now using SD cards more frequently, users are demanding the levels of reliability and durability associated with other professional card types. With the world’s fastest write speed of up to 299MB/s, buffer clearing time is minimised. This allows the photographer to shoot many frames per second and capture the action that they want. The SF-G series TOUGH specification range also supports V90, the highest standard of video speed class, making it an ideal companion for shooting high resolution video.
Furthermore, transferring high capacity photo and video files is made simple with the SF-G series TOUGH specification, thanks to a read speed of up to 300MB/s. This is another world’s fastest which dramatically enhances workflow efficiency after the shooting is all wrapped up. In a further acknowledgement of the practical needs of photographers, the SF-G series TOUGH specification range feature bright yellow banding design, making the card easier to spot in dark shooting conditions.
SF-G series TOUGH specification SD cards offer a series of further features, designed to give photographers peace of mind. These include an ‘SD Scan Utility’ which allows the user to check that the card is good condition and File Rescue Software which can recover data and photos that might have accidentally been deleted. Furthermore, SF-G series TOUGH specification SD cards are also X-ray proof, magnet proof, anti-static, temperature proof and feature UV Guard.
Media Scan Utility
Check the condition of your memory card using the free Media Scan Utility from Sony, available to download here.
Media Scan Utility helps you check the condition of your memory card. By scanning the flash memory, it tells you whether your memory card is working in good condition or is about to reach the limit. Knowing the condition in advance, you can avoid missing your important moment or scene to be recorded.
Just install Media Scan Utility on your computer. It will automatically check your memory card when it is inserted to the computer, showing an easy-to-understand warning message if the memory card is coming close to the limit of write cycles.
If you connect multiple memory cards, you can also view the conditions of those memory cards at a time.
File Rescue Software
Sony’s “Memory Card File Rescue” helps recover your precious photos and videos. Available to download here.
Memory Card File Rescue helps recover data from your Sony memory media that may have been accidentally damaged or deleted.
- Read 300 MB/s
- Write 299 MB/s
- Warranty 5 Years
- IP Rating: Highest level (IP68) dust and water proofing
The world’s toughest level of bend strength
A monolithic construction with high hardness materials have resulted in the world’s highest level of bend strength,18 times greater than the SD standard (180 N). This design eliminates the risk of physical damage and protect the data recorded onto the card, ideal for busy professional photographers even under severe shooting locations.
World’s first ribless, no write protection switch design
Removed easy to break parts, such as rib and data protection switch of conventional SD cards, enhances reliability
Highest level Waterproof (IPX8) and dustproof(IP6X)
Completely sealed with monolithic structure, this card is waterproof (compliant to IPX8) and recorded data is undamaged even if the card is submerged in 5 meters of water for up to 72 hours.
Also completely sealed with monolithic structure, the card is dustproof (compliant to IP6X) and keeps out all dust particles, and can be used in severe shooting environment.Even if the card is used in dusty or dirty areas or dropped in mud, it can be washed in fresh water and wiped off to be used again for perfect flexibility.
* IPX8 : This class of ‘waterproof performance’ is defined in IEC standards, etc. (9 levels, from 0-8) as the highest level, indicating ‘the ability to keep water out of the interior even after continued submergence’ (According to Sony testing using tap water). IP6X: This class of ‘dustproof performance’ is defined in IEC standards, etc. (7 levels, from 0-6) as the highest level, indicating ‘the ability to keep dust out of the interior’.
Shock resistance clears drop tests from 5 meters
The monolithic construction with rock-solid mateials provides shock resistance, withstanding drops test from a height of 5 meters.This design reduces the risk of damage from dropping when swapping the card out frequently at busy shooting locations.
High Reliability for Professional Photographers
In addition to the world’s highest level of durability, this card offers has X-ray proof(ISO7816-1), Magnet-proof, Anti Static, temperature proof, UV Guard, and wide-ranging compatibility with major UHS-II-supporting DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
The world’s fastest SD card
Sony developed high-speed capture technology to achieve the world’s fastest write speed of up to 299MB/s. Along with the supporting UHS-II interface, this revolutionary write speed maximizes the burst-shooting capabilities of high-end DSLRs.
The SF-G series supports the continuous shooting of 241 compressed RAW or 362 JPEG images when shooting by α9, which has burst-shooting capability up to 20 frames per second.
Shorter Buffer Clearing Time – Never miss the critical moment!
