SanDisk has announced the world’s highest capacity SD card for photographers and videographers. At 512GB, the SanDisk Extreme PRO® SDXC UHS-I card has massively surpassed the first SD card back in 2003 by a thousandfold, which was just 512 megabytes. In February, Sandisk released the world’s largest microSD card as well, with 128GB of storage. Clearly, Sandisk is changing the storage game!

“As an industry leader, SanDisk continues to push the boundaries of technology to provide customers with the innovative, reliable, high-performance solutions they have come to expect from us,” said Rajesh Gupta, Country Manager India, SanDisk Corporation. “4K Ultra HD is an example of a technology that is pushing us to develop new storage solutions capable of handling massive file sizes. The 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I card is a tremendous advancement that enables professionals to reliably store more content on a single card than ever before.”

With 4K bursting on the scene, this card is geared exactly for that. The 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I card will be able to deliver the speed and capacity required to support 4K Ultra HD videos. In a tally of how gigantic the card’s space is, it will allow photographers to store about 200,000 8MP JPEG photos or 20,000 8MP RAW photos. Or you can capture  almost 19 hours of 60Mbps videos. Wedding photographers and videographers rejoice!

This new card features write speeds of up to 90MB/s and transfer speeds of up to 95MB/s. The card is also temperature proof, water proof, shock proof, and x-ray proof. It also has a lifetime limited warranty and has support for RescuePRO Deluxe data recovery software for recovering accidentally deleted images. But this mammoth memory comes at a mammoth price as well, the SanDisk Extreme PRO® SDXC UHS-I card costs Rs 51990. So maybe we’d have to keep our eyes on the Extreme Pro’s 128GB or 256GB variants for now. For more information, visit
