The new Pro Series cards expand Samsung's line-up of memory card products, joining new High Speed Series and Plus Extreme Speed Series ? both of which include cards with capacities up to 32 GB. Also at the PhotoPlus Expo, Samsung will exhibit its full line of Digital Imaging products, including new NX lenses joining the growing NX family of compact system cameras and SMART compact point-and-shoot models with built-in Wi-Fi.
Samsung's new Pro Series SD and microSD memory cards are sporting a high-end design, they are designed to be water resistant, shockproof (up to 3,200 lbs.), and magnet proof (up to 10,000 gauss.) Read speeds go up to 80 MB per second and write speeds up to 40 MB per second .
Samsung's High Speed and Plus Extreme Speed memory cards complete the line-up of SD and microSD products, and feature a performance boost.
