Let's see, 150MB/s...Say a top of the line DSLR can take 10 pictures per second at 11MP which is about 6MB per picture, that's called overkill. Not even my 1080i60 Canon digital camcorder exceeds 45MB/s.
...so, they develope and market a product that has no application or demand? I don't think so. Quote: The market for DSLR is expected to grow by some 50% from 2012 to 2015 and demand for CF cards will grow with it. Toshiba will be developing high performance memory cards to meet those needs of the market. end quote
Which just means that now camera/video manufacturers can design new products that will be able to use the technology. These people aren't dumb...this is not a "build it and they will come" scenario...they know there is a market. It's called 'progress'.
Just because a faster product exists doesn't mean it's necessary. DDR3 2600 is a good example. Even the speed boost from DDR4 will not be needed (the energy reduction, however, is). Products will always get faster, but other improvements such as new forms of more efficient compression make that speed improvement less necessary. And with SSDs getting smaller and thinner, my prediction is that cameras and camcorders will wirelessly interface with SSDs via a secure wireless link (802.11, not Bluetooth as BT will take a while to come up in speed) either clipped to their belt or inside their camera bag because as we get cameras and camcorders that can use 4K resolution, we will need more than can fit into a SD or CF card. Either that or, more likely, cameras will be able to host half a terrabyte or more of data over a future revision of USB or a form of eSATA link which already has the necessary speed.
Sports Photoraphers shooting Top-Teir DSLRs in RAW format. They need to shot very fast FPS, and need their flash memory to keep up. Shooting a RAW image at 20mp is quite a bit of data.
