Surprising, but also to be expected, was the introduction of the Sony SD, SDHC and microSD/SDHC memory cards. With the introduction of the new Sony CyberShot cameras, the specifications showed that besides supporting Sony's own Memory Stick, they also now support the SD platform. This is a logical choice, seeing that almost all manufacturers made this step years ago, or in the case of Olympus, who made it recently. What the consequences will be in the long run for the Memory Stick is yet to be seen, but we expect that this is the first step in the complete conversion to the SD/SDHC and undoubtedly the SDXC flash memory cards in the coming year or two.

Last year, the specifications of a new generation of Secure Digital flash (SD) memory cards were made public. And these were, to put it lightly, impressive. With SD as base and SDHC (SD High Capacity) for higher storage capacities of a maximum of 32GB, a heavy specification requirement was set for every new type of card that would take over after SDHC. However, anyone taking a look at the SDXH (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity) roadmap, and sees a storage capacity of 2TB and a bus interface speed of 104MB/sec to 300MB/sec in a later phase, will soon be convinced. Panasonic starts off this year with the introduction of the first 48GB and 64GB SDXC memory cards.
