Panasonic announces 4GB SD cards

SD 2.0 Standard (SDHC). Shipping this summer. I'm guessing this could lead to an announcement at NAB of 16GB P2 cards, though they probably wouldn't release till the summer. Enjoy...

Thanks. I bet you're right; at NAB they'll trot out the 16GB P2 cards along with the full-size shoulder-mount 2/3rd-inch DVCPRO HD P2 camcorder. Model number escapes me at the moment.

Thanks Douglas -- I'm looking forward to Panasonic's P2 exhibits at NAB this year.

Panasonic has indeed revealed plans to release 4GB Secure Digital (SD) cards by the summer which will conform to the SD High Capacity (SDHC) specifications.

The cards are expected to be Class 2 products, capable of a 2Mbps. The SDHC specs, also known as the SD 2.0 standard, have minimum sustained data rates of 2, 4, and 6 Mbps. The new standard is expected to allow for capacities up to 32MB.

Please note the data rate -- "capable of a 2Mbps." Even in a P2 RAID, that's not 100Mbps.

SDHC means "SD High Capacity."

To clarify, the article states "data transfer rates of 2, 4 and 6MBps". Mega Bytes, not Mega bits.

P2 runs at 640 Mbps (80 MBps). Even at 6 MBps (48 Mbps), these cards are woefully short of that. But, it IS nice to see the capacity improvements.

Could these be cards intended for the HD version of the Panasonic AV100?

They are a bit slow for high-quality MPEG-4 AVC. One really needs at least 9Mbps.
