Verbatim has a vast array of Flash memory products, the Premium SDHC cards being the flagship range. The Class 10 cards are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities. The company also does a single 64GB SDXC Class 10 card.
The SDHCs are aimed at professional and amateur photographers using digital cameras, and professional users of SLRs may find the 10MBps read and write speeds a little slow.

Choose Smarter: Ten… Class 10 SDHC Cards
Normally reviews include real-life experiences and opinions.
All you've done here is list the manufacturers' speed ratings and taken them as 100% true.
Like to see how these class10 cards cope with a 16 shot burst of RAW files from the Nikon D800's 36mp CCD! Something tells me there would be a backwash with the camera buffering for some considerable time.
UDMA and U1 are the way to go!
Likely some of these will be too slow on write for full HD in pro camcorders so check write specs with care imho
