We have an incredible amount of information available at our fingertips, and now, thanks to a new innovation by SanDisk, we can take it it with us. The Secure Digital eXtended Capacity was introduced at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam, and it’s capable of housing an incredible 512GB of data. This makes the SDXC the highest-capacity memory card in the world.
Variety of Uses
Using NAND flash memory, this new technological advancement uses concepts we’ve seen in other tools such as flash drives and smartphones. The cards are Class 10, and just some of their uses include:
- High speed and performance projects
- Recording video in 4K UltraHD
- Use with next generation of DSLR cameras from Nikon and Canon
Time is precious, and the world around us is moving faster than ever before. The new SDXC allow you to keep up with the pace. They are capable of recording fast action videos and photos, and they come in a variety of capacities including 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. Their write speeds will also save you time as they range anywhere from 90-95 MB/s.
You Get What You Pay For
You get what you pay for, and to take advantage of this new technology complete with waterproof, magnet and x-ray proof features, you will have to make an investment. You can expect to pay around $799 for the 512GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I. If you’re a professional videographer or high end photographer, however, the investment will pay for itself.
