Sony is truly jumping on board with industry-standard memory cards with the introduction of a trio of SDHC ranges.

Sony is truly jumping on board with industry-standard memory cards with the introduction of a trio of SDHC ranges.

Obviously not all Sony digital imaging devices will be compatible with these new SD cards. Offered as options for digital SLRs, a Sony Handycam or an Alpha NEX interchangeable lens camera, here are the cards we can expect soon:

  • Class 4 Essential Series (up to 4MB/s): 2, 4, and 8GB capacities
  • Class 4 Experience Series (up to 15MB/s): 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32GB capacities
  • Class 10 Expert Series (up to 20MB/s): 8, 16, and 32GB capacities

Apparently Sony's change of heart from the Memory Stick-only development reflects "the needs of today's digital imaging customers."

All of these cards are expected to roll out in January.
