So how many photos do you think you can cram in a 1 Terabyte memory card (spoiler: it’s this times 2)?  This question just move from a theoretical question into a practical question as SanDisk just showed off their first prototype of a 1 Terabyte SDXC card.

While this is not the first consumer 1 Terabyte solid state drive, it is the first one that fits in an SD card form factor.

Sam Nicholson, CEO of Stargate Studios and member of the American Society of Cinematographers said that:

Just a few short years ago the idea of a 1TB capacity point in an SD card seemed so futuristic – it’s amazing that we’re now at the point where it’s becoming a reality. With the growing demand for applications like VR, we can certainly use 1TB when we’re out shooting continuous high-quality video. High-capacity cards allow us to capture more without interruption, streamlining our workflow, and eliminating the worry that we may miss a moment because we have to stop to swap out cards”

The delivery time for the card is still unknown, so is the number of cars you would have to sell to buy one.

    GOOD LORD! Well, I guess this would be great for 4K video..but I don’t see any need for such a large card for photographs. 128gb is the highest I would imagine going (though I stick to 32 and 64gb cards). Who wants to trust one card with 1tb of images on it not to fail? 4K files are huge so this would definitely (spelled correctly, btw) be good for that. Still…

    In five years we’ll be laughing at how small and slow these stupid old 1TB cards are.
