PetaPixel Torture Testing Sony’s TOUGH SD Card to See What It Can Survive


#1
Sony claims its new TOUGH line of SD memory cards are the toughest and fastest SD cards ever made, so the folks over at Cameta Camera decided to put that claim to the test. Here’s a 12-minute video in which the NY-based camera store subjects a card to a variety of torture tests to see how it holds up.

In the video, a 32GB Sony TOUGH card is placed into a washing machine, frozen, dirtied, and smashed.

Sony states that the cards are completely sealed from the outside world and are crushproof, bend-proof, drop-proof to 5 meters (~16.4ft), X-ray proof, magnet proof, anti-static, temperature proof, UV protected, dustproof (IP6X), and waterproof (IPX8)



So how did the tortured card fare in Cameta Camera’s tests?

“This little card was able to survive all of our torture tests until we decided to run it over with a 4,000-pound car,” the store says. The card emerged looking pretty good aside from a nasty crack from the car.

“While the average photographer might never need a card this durable, a lot of professionals who make a living with these things might find it worthwhile for that extra piece of mind,” the store says.
