Panasonic 8GB SDHC Pro

Panasonic backed up the release of its 5-series cameras today with its new SDHC Pro card. Where most cards have to focus on either storage or speed, the new card stores 8GB while keeping a Class 6 speed rating that guarantees at least 6MB per second and as much as 20MB. The combination of features is enough for the SD5 and SX5 to record 1080i HD video in real-time for as long as three hours in an economy mode or 80 minutes at maximum detail.

The SDHC card is also able to store as much as 3080 10-megapixel photos for owners of digital cameras and 136 hours of music for media players that support the format. 8GB cards ship alongside the SD5 and SX5 in September for $160 and will be followed by a 16GB version later this year. The company also expects a 32GB SDHC Pro card to be available sometime in 2008.
