  3. Video Speed Class: Ranging from V6 to V90 (minimum sustained write speed of 90MB/s), the latest Speed Class is optimized for high-resolution & high-bitrate video and simultaneous multi-file recording, such as RAW + JPEG, multiple video streams created by 360º cameras, video + still + GPS data & time-lapse.
  4. Maximum Read Speed: The fastest speed that data can be transferred from the card to a computer. The higher the read speed, the less wait time.
