Sony Product Advisory: These Popular SD Cards Can Corrupt Your Footage
Article by DL CADE
Four days ago, Sony quietly issued a product advisory for three of its SD card product lines that could potentially corrupt your video footage when used. The company will replace these cards for free if your serial number is affected.
The notice—first spotted by Dan Carr over at Shuttermuse—refers to three affected products: The regular SF-M cards, the TOUGH SF-M series, and the TOUGH SF-G series. According to the notice, “data on [these cards] may be damaged or data may not be recorded correctly when shooting video on a camera in [the advertised V60/V90] video speed class mode.”
Sony doesn’t offer any further details about the issue with these cards, except to say that they’ll be offering free replacements from June 11th, 2020 through March 31st, 2022, “subject to the limited warranty that accompanied the SD memory card.”
