Eyefi has announced the latest addition to its family of Wi-Fi-enabled SD cards. The Eyefi claims that its 32GB Mobi Pro is “the most powerful WiFi SD card ever” and will be a welcome addition to the arsenal of professional photographers everywhere. The Mobi Pro supports Selective Transfer, which allows users to tag individual images for syncing instead of transferring every photo stored on the card. However, this functionality is a bit cumbersome to use as each photo that you do want to sync has be marked as write-protected from the camera.

SDHC UHS-I cards were announced a few months ago, with the UHS-I designation meant to showcase enhanced speeds over traditional Secure Digital cards. These cards are designed for more professional applications, such as broadcast television or recording real-time HD footage. But announcing a specification and announcing a shipping product that takes advantage are two very different things, and now Toshiba is proud to announce that they're shipping the world's fastest SDHC memory card. The biggest news here is that we're talking about SDHC, not SDXC. SDHC is more widely accepted in products (particularly... Read more...
"Fast" never really is "fast enough," is it? In the computer realm, that's almost always true. In the Flash memory market, that's definitely true. Regardless of how quick your interface is, it's always annoying to sit and wait for transfers, particularly large ones, to complete. The SD Association is really making a name for itself lately, and the SD card looks to be slowly making a play for becoming the go-to format, even for professionals. Not long ago, SDXC was announced as the next generation Secure Digital memory card format. For many, having access to up to 2TB on a card with transfer rates... Read more...
We've already heard of SDXC--in fact, it's a format that was announced almost a year ago now--but we've really seen nothing to make us believe it (or the technology behind it) was ready for primetime. Now, however, it looks as if the underpinnings are finally coming together, and we're hearing things that are making us smile about existing Secure Digital options as well (backwards compatibility, anyone?) Reportedly, the next-generation Secure Digital (SD) memory card standard, SD Specification Version 4.00, is expected to be completed by the Spring of 2010, which could mean that SDXC cards will...

If you've bought a laptop recently, chances are good it has an integrated SDHC flash memory card reader. Today, the SDHC standard is pretty commonly used in various devices including digital cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, and many other devices. By integrating SDHC card readers into laptops, manufacturers have made the standard even more convenient to use since you don't have to carry an external reader to download and upload files from a memory card. Like all other technologies however, SDHC is in the process of being replaced by a newer, faster standard called SDXC. The SDXC standard was announced... Read more...

With the growing demand for larger storage space in a variety of devices, we've seen some great products float into our news box. Viperlair reviews the Corsair 2GB Secure Digital 133x, which should fill the space needs of most consumers.We added the Flash Voyager simply as a scale to help put the numbers in perspective. Flash media (in it's current state) will never be as fast as a flash drive, so what it boils down to today is how does Corsair fare against other "hi-speed" memory cards? Overall, very well from a performance aspect. The Sandisk Extreme III gave a close fight, but generally trailed... Read more...
