Hoodman's 32GB RAW STEEL SDHC Memory Card is a stellar storage solution designed to withstand the rigors of high performance photography and videography. While many flash cards can be on the more delicate side, Hoodman has included a few features to ensure that theirs is rigid and tough.
The card is steel-plated with a hard plastic exterior. In addition, it contains miniaturized chip-on board technology, instead of a PC-board like many other flash cards. Because this technology allows for more space inside the card, Hoodman has filled that space with an epoxy, so that the sensitive flash components are completely secure and insulated. In so doing, the epoxy both makes the card extremely rigid and water-proof.
Along with these extra protective measures, you still get the same superb SDHC performance that's synonymous with the Hoodman name. The card features a sustained write speed of up to 60MB/second, well-beyond the SDHC Class 10 minimum. When paired with today's high-end digital cameras or camcorders, this guarantees an extremely fast and consistent capture of photo and video.

Always carry a couple extra in your bag just in case. You never know when you need extra storage for that once in a lifetime opportunity.
Hoodman is a great company that stands behind their product 100%. Cheap cards can lead to massive, irreplaceable losses. This is money well spent.
I have been using Hoodman RAW since 2007 and I have never had a single card failure or data loss with either the SD or CF cards. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for other top brands I have used. They are made in California and the company is a pleasure to deal with!
