Gadget Bag: Memory Cards
Capacities and speeds continue to improve, giving you more options for still and HD-video shooting
Lexar’s Memory Stick PRO Duo Mark2 comes in capacities from 4 GB to 32 GB, and is compatible with many Sony digital cameras. Lexar doesn’t provide speed data for the PRO Duo Mark2, but it comes with Lexar’s limited lifetime warranty.
SanDisk coinvented the Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo with Sony, and offers its own version. The Ultra Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo comes in capacities from 4 GB to 32 GB, with prices ranging from $48 to $279. The cards can read/write at up to 30 MB/s, and carry SanDisk’s limited lifetime warranty.
Sony created the Memory Stick back in 1998, and the latest version, the 32 GB Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX ($149), is four times faster than the previous Memory Stick PRO Duo, able to read up to 30 MB/s and write up to 20 MB/s in compatible Sony DSLRs (the A900, A850, A55 and A33, plus the NEX-3 and NEX-5 mirrorless models and some other recent Sony still and video cameras).
