It’s a scenario most photographers have experienced. You’re in full-flow, capturing great images with when, suddenly, you get a message on the back of the camera telling you the card is full. But thanks to Lexar, this roadblock should be a thing of the past as the brand has now launched a 1TB SD card called the Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I.
Yep, you read that correctly, a 1TB SD card. To put that into perspective, that’s 1000GB or, if you shoot RAW files with a typical 24-megapixel camera, over 10,000 photos-worth of storage. Lexar explains this huge capacity card features read speeds of up to 633x (95MB/s) and is a Class 10 card, with a V30 video speed recording rating.
Lexar are the first to bring a 1TB SDXC card fully to market and chose the CES Show in Las Vegas to announce that the Lexar Professional 633x SDXC UHS-I, which is expected to be rolled out imminently and will be priced at $499. 99 in the US. Joey Lopez, Senior Marketing Manager at Lexar commented: ‘Almost fifteen years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD card. Today, we are excited to announce 1TB of storage capacity in the same convenient form factor. As consumers continue to demand greater storage for their cameras, the combination of high-speed performance with a 1TB option now offers a solution for content creators who shoot large volumes of high-resolution images and 4K video'.
The announcement shows just how far the storage game has changed in just a matter of years and the ground-breaking Lexar 1TB will have particular advantages for photographers in need of greater memory for specific jobs. For example, those setting up advanced timelapse creations or wildlife photographers using motion-activated camera traps - both applications where the photographer may not easily be able to return to the camera to change the SD card.. digitalrev.com
