  1. Lexar Media has announced that it is now shipping its Lexar Professional Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) 133x memory card in 64GB ($200) and 128GB ($330) capacities. The latter is an industry first, meaning that you won't find 128GB SDXC cards from anyone else.

    Nice! I remember when I was impressed by 1 GB on a CF card....

    I need the speed my 300x CF card has to keep up with my D700's buffer when shooting RAW. Those 133x cards would choke considerably sooner. That and I'm not a fan at putting all my eggs in one basket with a card so large, so I'll keep my 8GB/4GB backup cards. =)

    "but your D700 can't shoot video!" This is true, but even then if you're shooting hours and hours of video, I'd much rather have multiple cards, so in the event that one of them breaks/gets lost I'll still have content, or at the least a replacement card.

    Of course I'm butthurt that CF cards are a dying breed because they are (generally) faster, more robust, but more complex to manufacture. I'll say this though, I've had CF cards survive the wash and dryer, being stepped on/"crushed", and I've never lost one. Can't say the same for the SD cards I've used lol.

    Now THAT's a lot of pictures. Even in HD.

    I started filming in HD the other day, though I never realized how much capacity it really needs. A 1GbB SD card could only hold 40 sec. continuous imagery. Only 20 sec. changing imagery!

    All in all = A lot of clipping and pasting using media software... :(
