512GB SD card from SanDisk

What would you do if you had a half terabyte of data storage that could fit comfortably in your shirt pocket? In the world of TV and film, two words come to mind, OVER SHOOT (or one word if you prefer “overshoot” instead). Not to sound too negative about the world’s first 512GB SD card, but the reason for not getting that shot that you needed will never stem from a lack of storage space any longer (until 8k files start showing up in low-cost cameras at least). In fact, you will probably run out of time before that happens. This is a welcome addition for those DSLR and mirrorless cameras that are on the market today, as this new 512GB SD card follows the same format as the other high performance “Extreme Pro” SD cards.  What’s that? You want to know how much it costs? Well, that’s the real reason you are reading this, isn’t it? It’s only list priced at $799! Yes, I’ll admit, that is pricey, but remember, all new technology is when it first comes out. Hopefully, Lexar will have one that is at least half the price if we just give them time.

SanDisk unveils world’s first 512 GB SD memory card

You can never have enough storage. This is true both of the homes we choose to live in, and in the digital realm where we keep memories and content backed up for safe keeping. SanDisk has now announced its, and the world’s, highest capacity SD memory card so far.

The 512 GB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I memory card is designed with professional videographers and photographers in mind. These are, after all, the people most likely to need to shoot 4K video, full 1080p HD video, or high-definition photographs. The high capacity is coupled with write speeds up to 90 MB/s and transfer speeds up to 95 MB/s, meaning the ability to capture lots of content is augmented by a speedy post-production workflow. — Read more: http://www.gizmag.com/sandisk-512gb-sd-card/33833/
