The F series P2 cards are durable, reliable and use high-quality solid-state memory made of die-cast aluminum construction with impact-proof connectors. Available in 16, 32 and 64GB, the F series cards supports all currently available codecs from existing P2 cameras and recorders, as well as AVC-Intra Class 200 of the AVC ULTRA family *1.
The F Series P2 card contains a flash memory error correction system*2 which is equivalent to RAID system, which greatly strengthen the data retention reliability. When used with the Panasonic P2 Drives (AJ-PCD30 / AJ-PCD35), the F series P2 cards can transfer up to 1.2 Gbps*3, which is faster than most professional solid-state memory cards offered by other manufacturers.
Additionally, P2 cards offer dependable performance during recording in all types of environments, as well as instant access and complete data compatibility in all P2 camcorders and workflow tools.
*1: Video recording rate is approx. 200 Mbps (at 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i). P2 card F series don’t support all formats supported by AVC-Intra 200.
*2: Adopted from the P2 card E Series (released in 2009).
*3: When using AJ-PCD35 or AJ-PCD30 with E Series or F Series P2 cards. However, 1.2 Gbps is the maximum transfer speed and the actual transfer speed is dependent on system configuration, such as computer bus, OS, software and network.
* F-Series P2 cards are reusable for up to five years when recorded on once daily, at full capacity (100%); when used at half capacity (50%), the cards will continue to record for up to 10 years. A notification is given (in the camcorder's LCD/viewfinder or the card reader's display) as the card approaches the end of its life cycle. Details of the card's life can also be displayed on a computer using P2 Formatter software, a free download available in the P2 Support section.
