It was only recently that I heard of SanDisk's new UHS SD cards.
Quote:
The card achieves high performance and efficient power consumption in UHS-enabled cameras such as the Nikon D7000.

Now could anyone tell me which cameras could benefit from using UHS cards ? I thought Sony's A580 would support UHS as it was released at about the same time, but I've just read over at PopPhoto (admittedly, the article was published in January this year) that the only UHS-enabled camera on the market today is Nikon's D7000 :?...maybe Canon's 600D and Nikon's new D5100 ? I've found very little about this UHS thing really...

C'mon, sure someone must have heard of these before and know more about them than I do :P ?

I'll certainly mention in my reviews when something is compatible, or rather when something will exploit them.

Meanwhile I read that the Nikon D5100 is also UHS-enabled :).

Sony's A77 is UHS-I compatible, too (fortunately!).

UHS is the abbreviation for Ultra High Speed. It's 'new' standard for SD memory cards. So far I've only seen UHS-I class cards, but there will be UHS-II cards somewhere in the future, too :).

They need a compatible camera (like Sony's A77) to achieve their maximum read/write speeds. At first SanDisk (don't know about the other companies) had 45 MB/s cards (with capacities from 8 GB to 32 GB).

They have recently (I think it was somewhere in September or October) released a new variant (8-64 GB) with read/write speeds up to 95/90 MB/s.
