Product Research


Overview: The ultra-fast Sony HX-series Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo memory card lets you save your digital pictures and video clips from compatible Sony Alpha-series DSLRs, NEX-series interchangeable lens cameras, Cyber-shot digital still cameras, and Handycam digital camcorders. This memory card is ideal for high speed data transfer and continuous shooting.

Compatibility: This Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo memory card will work only with Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo compatible devices. If the instruction manual included with your Memory Stick device does not mention Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo or Memory Stick PRO Duo compatibility, this memory card should not be used. It is also compatible with the MagicGate copyright protection system.

Capacity: The capacity of this Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo is 8 GB. Because a portion of the card capacity is used for system files, the actual usable capacity is approximately 7.35 GB. The approximate recording capability of this card is 1200 high-resolution photos, 3 hours 5 minutes of Full HD video (LP Mode), or 35 minutes of Full HD video (PS Mode).

Note: Still Image recording capability based on using a Cyber-shot digital still camera in 18 MP setting. Video recording capability based on a Handycam digital camcorder in AVCHD LP (5 Mbps) and PS (28 Mbps) modes.

Transfer Speed: Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo can transfer data at much higher speeds compared to standard Memory Sticks. When used in Memory Stick PRO-HG compatible devices, this Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo has a minimum transfer speed of 50 MB/s. Write speed is slower, based on Sony internal testing.

MagicGate: This Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo employs MagicGate encryption technology in order to protect copyrights. It enables you to enjoy your own recordings as well as prevents unauthorized use.
