Sony Tough SD cards are basically indestructible. They’re unbendable, waterproof, shock-proof and freeze-proof. According to Sony, even X-ray, magnet or high temperatures won’t kill them. But are they really that tough? Steve Huff put them to an ultimate torture test in a swimming pool, washer, drier, ice and even blender. So, how tough is Sony Tough?
When I was shooting and testing the new Sony RX100 V for a few hours last week I usually kept it in single shot mode, how I have shot forever. Single shot mode goes against everything that this new superspeed jet fuel camera is all about. This new refresh of the RX100V is all about speed, continuous shooting and that crazy 24FPS shooting mode. I mean, the RX100 V is much more than that, but this is what the hype was and is about. For those who want to never miss a moment.
Sony said this new 24FPS mode is a way to capture the “Decisive Moment”. Well, this can be good, or this can be bad, depending on who you are, your philosophy on photography, the way you capture images and so forth. Now some out there, for example, someone who shoots with a Leica M, well they will never shoot at 24FPS. Others who shoot action, sports or want to spray and pray for the best shot, this camera may be a miracle worker.
