Sony M Stick Pro Duo 32GB
Sony started its week today by introducing its largest ever Memory Stick Pro-HG Duo HX card. The 32GB card stores twice as much as Sony's previous best and is treated as a particularly ideal fit for the company's own Alpha DSLRs and its HD camcorders: the latter could hold about 3.75 hours of HD footage on a single card. As an HX card, it's also relatively quick with 15MB per second write speeds and 20MB reads.
The card comes with a USB adapter to guarantee full speed and avoid draining camera batteries. Sony notably avoids committing to a price or exact availability but does say the card won't replace the existing 4GB, 8GB or 16GB models in its HX lineup.
