Panasonic 64GB and 48GB SDXC cards unveiled

Panasonic are the latest memory card manufacturer to throw their metaphorical hat into the SDXC ring, and they’ve a capacious duo to show for it.  The Panasonic 64GB and 48GB SDXC cards are each Class 10 and can apparently manage up to 22MB/s transfer speeds.

In case you’re wondering, in a compatible camcorder 48GB of storage is good enough for 6hrs 20m of Full HD AVCHD video.  Both cards will be available on February 19th, priced at the equivalent of $550 for the 48GB and $700 for the 64GB.

Since you’ll probably want to get your photos and video off the cards at some point, Panasonic have also outed a new SDXC memory card reader .  Currently compatible with Windows machines only, the reader not only accepts the new, high-speed memory cards but SD/SDHC and microSD/SDHC memory too.  It will retail for the equivalent of $55 and will also arrive on February 19th.
