UHS SD cards.

I am unable to find much information about UHS cards and their compatibility. I understand older cameras (all current Pentax?) won't write at over 30Mb/s, but will they still recognise and be able to use the card all the same?

I don't actually do much burst shooting, so the huge write speed isn't a big issue; however a USB3 card reader moving photos from the card to HDD will make life better.

So do the new UHS cards meet SD standards that will still work in order cameras, or is it a new format that won't be recognised? (like my in-monitor card reader not handling SDHC).

The UHS SDHC/SDXC cards should work in any camera that works with SDHC/SDXC cards. I have a Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS SDHC card that is much faster uploading to my PC using a Pretec USB 3.0 card reader than my Sandisk Extreme 30mb/sec SDHC card using the same reader.
