Manfrotto's "Pro Rugged" memory cards can withstand quite a beating from impacts, water submersion, and the harshest of elements.
When you think of Manfrotto, tripods and other camera support and stabilization gear might be the first things that come to mind. However, the Italian company has announced a new line of memory cards that are stronger than any out on the market right now.
The Pro Rugged line features SD, microSD, and CF cards that are reportedly three times stronger than regular SD cards. They feature a solid molded plastic design that allows them to withstand over 44 lbs. of impact, -25°C to 85°C temperatures, and water submersion for up to 72 hours (at least for the SD and microSD cards).
But these cards are not just tough, but they're also fast. Here's a breakdown of each card's read/write speeds:
- SD: 280/250 MB/s
- MicroSD: 90/90 MB/s
- CF: 160/130 MB/s
- 280MB/s Read
- 250MB/s Write
- V90 – 200X – UHS II
- Withstands up to 20kg of force
- Suitable for temperatures -25° C to 85° C
