Panasonic Class 10 SDHC

Panasonic today set a record with its SDHC card line by launching the first-ever Class 10 cards. The rating promises a minimum 10MB per second and is better tailored to high-end compact cameras, entry digital SLRs or HD camcorders where baseline speed is essential: a still camera with 3MB shots can capture 3 frames per second without the SDHC card becoming the bottleneck. It also peaks at 22MB per second and is about 40 percent faster than a Class 4 (4MB per second) card in sustained transfers of large files.

The new "gold" line will include cards with 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB of storage and is due to ship in June with prices set later. Panasonic is also using the opportunity to introduce a "silver" line that only guarantees Class 4 speed but can still top out at 20MB per second. [via DPReview]
