Lexar, a respected player in the world of solid state storage, has announced the world’s first 1TB SD storage card. You are able to preorder it right now for the price of $399. Online retailers BHphoto and Adorama have the card available now for preorder (links below).

The new Lexar Professional 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I card is a Massive card. You can use the card for camcorder or DSLR photographs as well as recording movies. As an example, If you were shooting 4k video at 60fps and 200 Mbps, then you will be able to store 640 minutes of 4K video. Wow! You can also shoot in 8K video on this card, just in case you’re wondering.

The main benefit of having such as huge card is that you will not need to swap cards during long photo or video shoots. This is a Class 10 card UHS-I for speeds of up to 95 MB/s – write speeds for the Lexar 1TB card will be far less. This is far faster than Lexar’s Professional 633x 512GB SDXC UHS-I card, retailing for about $220. For the 1TB storage card, you get faster speeds and you pay twice the price for twice the storage.

Many Professional photographers / videographers insist on purchasing two cards to be used in a dual-card setup. This is just in case you have the dreaded card failure. Lexar quality lab has tested the cards compatibility with over 1,100 different devices and provides you with a limited-lifetime warranty.
