The Sony SF-M TOUGH specification SD card is the world’s toughest UHS-II SD card that is shockproof and has the highest-grade waterproof and dustproof levels. With an ultra-high-speed data transfer of up to 277MB/s read speed and 150MB/s write speed, both photographers and videographers can enjoy the speed benefits of the SF-M TOUGH SD cards, whether shooting high megapixel RAW photographs or recording 4K video.

Even in extreme shooting conditions, users work is protected so he can focus on the job in hand. When the card is used with the new Sony MRW-S3 USB Hub, backups are swift and buffer times reduced, resulting in a highly optimised workflow.
