Sony-XQD-G-series1-v2

The new G Series is compliant to XQD Format Version 2, both PCI Express Gen.2 and USB3.0 interface are supported on a newly-developed controller for high performance.
The G Series delivers increased read 400MB/s*1 and write 350MB/s*1 speeds, which is three times the speed of the previous N Series cards.

Sony’s unique media technology enables these G Series cards to provide efficient data writing, dependable recording of 4K video while avoiding speed degradation.
The larger capacity 128GB model expands the line-up allowing up to 40 minutes of 4K XAVC Intra 422 60p (600Mbps) recording with Sony’s 4K video cameras.

  1. The price of the G Series 128GB card does not seem to be proportionately more expensive than the S series 64GB card (which inexplicably comes in two speeds, 168mbs and 180mbs). The latter has come down to under £400, the former appears to be about £550.

    Philip,
    Are the figures in the table correct? Your review of the Z100 quoted 7 minutes of 4K on a 32GB card – surely a 64GB should give 13 or 14 minutes?

    Just wondered if you’ve been able to verify this?

    HDR : Hi Richard I think you will find Sony to be more accurate than me…if you choose to film 4K at 50p the record times are poor.

    Philip,
    Thanks for your response. Unless I’m missing something I think the Sony table is wrong. This site … http://www.sony.net/Products/memorycard/en_us/xqd/ .. Which shows the same table as you also says “The larger capacity 128GB model expands the line-up allowing up to 40 minutes of 4K XAVC Intra 422 60p (600Mbps) recording with Sony’s 4K video cameras.”.

    So if a 128gb can get 40 minutes of 4k XAVC-I, then a 64GB should logically get 20 minutes!

    HDW : Richard the table shows a 64G card time of 10m for 4K 60p so 128G would be 20m total time…the 40m reference is a typo.
