    Delkin Devices began shipping the fastest SDXC UHS-I memory card in the world. The new 64GB 633X rated card is designed for streaming HD and 3D video applications where speed and capacity are imperative and is the fourth capacity to be added to their recently introduced family of UHS-I memory cards.

    “As camcorders are moving towards flash memory storage and away from tape, we’re simultaneously seeing a strong trend in videographers utilizing HD video capabilities in DSLRs,” explains Marketing Manager, Anna Lopez. “Standard SD memory cards are more than fast enough for typical applications but not nearly fast enough to keep up with the large amount of data that HD video requires, particularly when shooting a feature film or longer movie clip. Our new 64GB Elite633 card is able to record at speeds up to 45 megabytes per second and read at speeds up to 95 megabytes per second which eliminates any pause to the recording process that users experience with slower cards.”

    Elite633 SDHC and SDXC cards feature transfer speeds tripling previous Secure Digital Class 10 capabilities to accommodate the most sophisticated High Definition and 3D imaging enabled equipment on the market. Defined by the SD Association as enabling transfers up to 104 Megabytes per second, this Ultra High Speed Bus-Interface is quickly being integrated into applications like JPG & RAW burst-mode photography and real-time broadcast & streaming video.

    Delkin’s newest Elite633 card is capable of recording up to 8 hours of high definition video or capturing more than 17,000 photos in SDXC enabled cameras, camcorders and host devices. Because SDXC memory cards utilize an exFAT format they are not compatible with older non SDXC devices or operating systems. Advanced features like reliable Error Correction Code, Wear Leveling, and storage integrity in harsh conditions (like exposure to static, vibration, shock & UV light) remain. Like all Delkin memory cards, the company’s US based technical support staff is available to offer free data recovery services and support for the lifetime of the product. Cards begin shipping direct from Delkin as of today to specialty photo and video retailers worldwide for a retail price of $539.99.

    its not for average users... as DSLR cameras now have 1080p video recording capability with some of them using 24MBps recording rates, im sure the quality will go upwards and need more speed. Theres already video cameras shooting much higher than 1080p, but thats way above prosumer level... like the RED stuff!

    one of their cameras shoots in 5120x2700 HD!!!! @ 120FPS!
    of course all of this has to bve written to some really fast SSD's probably raided :D

    32 Mbps = 4 MBps

    Video does not need fast cards. Shooting 24MP RAW at 10 FPS does.

    Also, RED does not give a damn about SD(whatever).

    Red is already using SSD's. If you look at the "RED-ONE" it has a "RED 120GB SSD".

    It uses CF cards at minimum, not SD/SDHC/SDXC or SD(whatever), this discussion is irrelevant.

    It may seem unusable now, but thats ok. It's technology. Storage manufacturers are in the zone pushing more bang for your buck, and god bless'em. Less than 4 years ago no body thought of installing an OS to a thumb drive, now some mobo's come with USB onboard(not headers).

    Times change too fast to have the thought of being unusable, it's either be at the front or get lost in the pack.
    Mindweaver says thanks.

    It is relevant to your post. I was just agreeing with your post about,"why use a SD(whatever) in a High end camera.". What makes this a bad idea is the cost of it not the idea. This would do well in cheap devices where this memory card is 3x the price of the unit. Cheap devices like android tablets, ebook readers, mp3 players, etc could make use of this product to steam hd material from the SD slot on the unit and not worry about choppy video. If this was around 100 bucks I would get one or two for some of my devices. :toast:

    @btarunr great news! keep it coming! :toast:

    Isn't this kind of useless?

    Any camera that shoots in high enough FPS already uses Compact Flash (7D, etc.)

    I don't think I would ever want one this big, if you filled it up with pictures and it got corrupted then your screwed. that's why i stick to 8-16gb I would only do 64gb if I was making a long movie clip. And 17,000Pic is insane on my T2i i have taken a little over 10,000.
    Well this would be sweet for my camera, I can take super long burst if i get this card as my current card limits me i can get up to 34 burst shots at 18MP with max res 5184 x 3456. With a Patriot LX 16GB . So this thing must fly! but sadly for that price i would never spend.

    These cards have been for sell for a little while now they are at B&H Pro I would like to get the 8Gb for $80

    in a perfect world.

    even class 10 devices choke with those 4MB/s recording rates, so these speeds really are needed.

    That's becasue they don't have to get somebody to actually verify their ratings before putting it on boxes.

    SDXC? There is a reason why sandisk didnt make a SDXC UHS1 card-incompatability with most DSLRs/camcorders today.
