Manfrotto, the Italian brand usually known for its robust tripods, has announced a new Pro Rugged line of memory cards that the company claims to be the strongest on the market. Their solid molded plastic design means they can withstand temperatures from –25°C to 85°C, survive 44 lbs. of impact, and remain underwater for up to 72 hours unscathed.
The line comprises CompactFlash, SD, and MicroSD versions, each of which comes in 64GB and 128GB capacities. The UDMA 7-rated CF cards feature 160MB/s and 130MB/s read/write speeds; the V90-rated SD cards boast 280MB/s and 250MB/s read/write speeds; and the V30-rated microSD cards offer 90MB/s read/write speeds.
The CF cards are priced at $80 and $150, respectively, for the 64GB and 128GB versions, while the corresponding prices for the SD cards are $115 and $225, and for the microSD cards, $32 and $42. Manfrotto has a launch promotion for the SD cards, with the 64GB and 128GB offered at half price. Check out www.manfrotto.com.
