SI: 32 GB Memory Stick Officially Out In Fall

Rate this question




Wow….Memory Stick has reached 32 GB! There was some sarcasm in that statement, mind you. Somehow Memory Stick capacity growth has been stalled, as one would imagine by this time people would have higher capacity storage. But again judging by 8 Mb concealed in a violet Memory Stick they started with and threw it in with their early Cybershots cameras, it is some progress!

We have seen an interesting naming scheme with MS as well. By the time we will see MS with 128GB, it will be called Memory Stick Pro Duo HG HiDef 4K Super HQ Xtreme. But we digress, the new MS that was announced in Europe and also mentioned in one of our posts, will not be a super fast beast as you would expect with transfer rates and it is marketed for the use with Cybershot, Handycam and DSLR cameras. No mentioning of VAIO for some reason….or PSP and PS3? Maybe a new family of Memory Stick will be hosting terabytes of storage as it has been stated by the company before, that would be some quantum leap!

If you are still interested in learning more, read the full press release:

  • Highest available capacity 32GB comes to Memory Stick HX family
  • Super-fast 20MB/second data transfer significantly shortens the wait
  • Perfect for High Definition camcorders or anyone handling large volumes of images

Sony has launched the largest-ever capacity Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX, crowning the range with a massive 32GB model. Memory Stick HX already delivers impressive speed, so the introduction of a 32GB version makes it the perfect choice for handling the very large files created when filming in High Definition video. The huge amount of space is also ideal for still photography, whether you are using a sophisticated DSLR like the Sony, or a compact, go-anywhere Cybershot.

Camcorder users can shoot in Full HD mode (1920 x 1080) for an impressive 225 minutes using a single 32GB Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX, virtually eliminating the nagging worry about how much space is left.

Freedom to concentrate on creating outstanding HD video is matched by trademark Memory Stick HX performance. Using the included USB adaptor, read speeds of 20MB/s and write speeds of 15MB/s are achievable, so you spend a lot less time waiting for your video to transfer to your PC.

This potent combination of size and speed is equally good news for owners of technically advanced DSLRs like the Sony with its continuous shooting capability. Alternatively, anyone with a compact digital camera who simply never wants to worry about filling up the memory now has the ideal solution.

The Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX range also includes 4GB, 8GB and 16GB models, and all versions are supplied with the free USB adaptor for optimum performance and easy connection to a huge range of hardware.

*This speed is based on tests with optimised host compliant devices. Actual data transfer speed is dependent on host hardware. Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX achieves 20*MB/s in reading mode, 15MB/s in writing mode in combination with supplied USB adaptor MSAC-UAH1.
