For high-res stuff.

A common issue during vacations is the inevitable lack of storage on your camera.

Which might result in a tedious process of deleting photos, or the hassle of changing SD cards.

But there might be an answer to these issues.

The Lexar one terabyte SD card.

SanDisk actually announced a similar 1TB card in 2016, but that never actually materialised.

According to Lexar, the 1TB card features a read speed of up to 95MB/s and a video recording speed class of V30.

The suggested retail price is US$499 (S$674), but doesn’t appear to be available in Singapore yet.


It is, however, a somewhat practical solution to those who shoot in 4K, and don’t really want the hassle of frequently changing cards.

Joey Lopez, Lexar’s senior manager had this to say.

“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.”
