Purported to be the “toughest memory cards on the market:

I wonder what Sony has to say about that!

Interesting, I wonder who really makes them?  If I had to make a guess it's that they are rebadged Sony Tough cards.  Even the way they removed the write protect tab on the SD cards is identical to the Sony...

That was my first impression, as well. Manfrotto offers a Rugged micro sd card, which I can’t find by Sony, though. The micro sd cards aren’t as fast as the better Sandisk cards. They are also offering Compact Flash cards.

That would be a good deal if they are.  Slightly slower speed rating but half the price of the Sony cards right now.

Probably the stuff that didn't quite make the speed ratings of those touted for the Tough cards.
