There was a time when if you wanted a large amount of storage in a camera card you had to go with a Compact Flash card. Now that those cards are all but dead, companies have been really pushing into the SD card space. It wasn't too long back that 256GB cards made their debut and now that size has doubled with the 512GB card from SanDisk. This is a UHS-1 card that promises crazy performance at a pretty crazy price at launch. If you need this kind of storage, it will set you back a mere $800.
SanDisk announced the Extreme Pro SDXC card (UHS-1) on Friday, the world's first SD card with room for 512 gigabytes of data — more than a half a terabyte of storage. To put that into perspective, 128GB is starting capacity for most Ultrabooks and the MacBook Air, and 256GB is common for most PC solid-state disk (SSD) drives today.
