Transcend Launches SDXC/SDHC UHS-I Speed Class 3 Cards

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, is proud to announce its launch of SDXC/SDHC UHS-I cards featuring full support for the Ultra High Speed Class 3 (U3) specification. Capable of reaching incredible read and write speeds of up to 95 MB/s and 85 MB/s, Transcend's SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3 cards provide the performance necessary to harness the full power of UHS U3-compliant digital recording equipment.

Cinema-Quality 4K Video Recording
Recently released by the SD Association, the Ultra High Speed Class 3 specification guarantees a minimum constant write speed of 30 MB/s to facilitate cinema-quality video recording. Transcend's SDXC UHS-I U3 and SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3X "Extreme" cards, however, can achieve at least double this performance with blazing-fast write speeds of up to 60 MB/s and 85 MB/s respectively. When used with today's advanced camcorders, such as the Sony 4K Handycam FDR-AX100, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4, and Canon EOS C500 Cinema Camera, these cards ensure smooth 4K video capture in stunning color and clarity.
Quick and Seamless File Transfers
In devices that do not support the UHS-I specification, Transcend's SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3 cards offer constant write speeds of at least 10 MB/s (SD Speed Class 10 performance), which makes them perfect for Full HD video recording as well as fast-action consecutive shooting. Pairing the new UHS-I U3 cards with Transcend's RDF8 USB 3.0 multi-card reader or the handy RDF5 USB 3.0 card reader with built-in USB port significantly reduces the time it takes to transfer data from card to computer with read speeds of up to 95 MB/s.

Enormous Storage Space Up to 128 GB
Featuring capacities ranging from 32 GB to an enormous 128 GB, Transcend's UHS-I U3 memory cards are fully equipped to handle the increased capacity requirements of professional photography and filmmaking. For instance, the 128 GB SDXC UHS-I U3 card can store more than 20,000 high-resolution JPEG images (12 megapixel camera, 6MB file size), over 8,500 RAW images (based on 14 MB file size), or a full 8 hours of 4K Ultra High-Definition footage (4096x2160 35 Mb/s H.264 AVC compression). Moreover, Transcend's SDXC UHS-I U3 cards make extended video recording sessions possible thanks to the use of the exFAT file system that allows users to exceed the 4 GB size per file limit of FAT32.

Free RecoveRX Software
For added value, each Transcend memory card includes a free download of Transcend's exclusive RecoveRx photo recovery software - an extraordinarily effective tool for bringing back accidentally deleted or lost files. All Transcend memory cards are fully tested for compatibility and reliability, and carry Transcend's renowned Lifetime Warranty. The SDXC UHS-I U3 cards (R95 MB/s, W60 MB/s) are available in 64 GB (US$49) and 128 GB (US$109) capacities, while the SDXC/SDHC UHS-I U3X cards (R95 MB/s, W85 MB/s) are available in 32 GB (US$59) and 64 GB (US$119) capacities.

Thats a great price for the 64GB card, I should get one to add more burst shots to my camera.

All that depends on, is your camera's buffer speed, if you knew what your camera's write speed was the U3 card speed may or may not help. It will definitely make clearing the camera's buffer quicker but not necessarily give more shots per say. Price looks decent enough though.

I have a lowly class 4 in it that limits my burst mode in RAW and jpg. At the time 16GB cards with any class about 4 were horribly expensive, and when shooting lightning storms and fast action the wait time to transfer kills me. It will help.
