Panasonic will release Class 10 SDHC memory cards, the Panasonic Gold line series, in Europe at the end of this month. Class 10 cards are designed to meet the requirement for higher resolution consecutive shooting and large-sized high definition video shooting.
Class 10 cards are rated to be able to write about 10MBps. As an example of sequential writing of 3 frame/sec.(1 frame=3MB), the Class 10 card enables the camera to write out large amounts of data continuously up until the card is fully written without missing any shots or writing stops.
The Panasonic GOLD line series claims to be the worldâ€™s first memory cards to adopt this new speed class. The new series will be available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacity. The new cards will be available in the UK from June 2009.
