You can now get an SD card with more storage than your average PC.
SanDisk announced the Extreme Pro SDXC card (UHS-1) on Friday, the world’s first SD card with room for 512 gigabytes of data — more than a half a terabyte of storage. To put that into perspective, 128GB is starting capacity for most Ultrabooks and the MacBook Air, and 256GB is common for most PC solid-state disk (SSD) drives today.
The 512GB card is rated for 4K video capture and able to write all the data needed to store ultra-high-res footage in real time. Photographers will also like its ability to keep pace with high-speed burst photography.
The card can handle a lot of wear and tear, too, including dunking in water and trips through an X-ray machine.
Big storage doesn’t come cheap, though. The price: $800.
SanDisk has other storage options in its Extreme Pro line, such as 128GB and 256GB SD cards
