Was just flicking through "digital pro" magazine that i picked up yesterday and noticed an "advert" for a new sd card coming out with 256 GB of storage, with a 400x write speed.... Holy crap batman....In case your thinking " hey , just what i need" it comes in at a RRP of.. wait for it.... $899 !!!!!!!!!! It is apparently the first card of its kind with this much storage.
With the new generation of cameras coming out ( D800 ) with huge tiff files... it makes you wonder where this will end... or maybe what the next "discovery" will be in terms of storage for our devices.
One things for sure, i would never use a card that big for an important project and have the chance to lose that much data....I've never had a card fail, but it does happen. I guess it is moreso aimed at the video guys rather than sill image capture, that would be a LOT of pics.
Interested to hear others thoughts on this, where is card tech heading, would you use a card of this size etc
