Item has been discontinued by the manufacturer, and limited quantities remain. Please call 877-893-8273 when ordering to check availability.
Designed as an economical way to enjoy the P2 file based workflow, the "F" series 16GB card offers significant cost savings over the "A" series cards. With a faster transfer rate of 1.2Gbps, the "F" card will offer all of the features expected from a P2 card, but at a lower price point. Built with an aluminum diecast casing, P2 cards offer a durability that is superior to plastic cards.
The "F" series Panasonic P2 cards were designed for high reliability over a number of years. When used once daily at full capacity, the cards are reusable for up to five years and will last up to 10 years if used daily at half capacity. A notification will be given in the LCD screen on the camera or viewfinder, or the display on the recorder, when the card is approaching the end of its life cycle. Or, download the formatter software at the Panasonic site to keep track of the card's usable life cycle on a computer.
The "F" series card uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash memory. In MLC NAND Flash Memory each cell holds two bits of data. While offering more data and reducing the unit per byte, it offers fewer overwrites and a shorter life cycle.
The "F" series 16GB card is fully compatible with all P2 HD camcorders, recorders and workflow tools. The AJ-PCD35, however, will require a firmware and driver upgrade that can be found here. The newer "F" series card still has the PCMCIA form factor to ensure compatibility between all existing P2 cameras, recorders and workflow tools as well as newer P2 products.
Reliability and Dependability
P2 cards from Panasonic offer resistance in extreme environments. P2 cards are impact, vibration, and shock-resistant and temperature changes nor environmental elements such as dust or debris will affect the P2 card's ability to function.
