This is 512GB Crammed into a Tiny microSD Card for Photographers
Want a lot of storage space for photos in a very tiny package? The California-based company Microdia has unveiled a new microSD card that can hold a whopping 512GB of data in a card that’s smaller than a fingernail.
The SDXC specification allows for memory cards of up to 2 terabytes, but it seems we’ve only pushed the 512GB threshold up to this point. Microdia is saying that the memory card will cost upwards of $1,000 when it hits store shelves in July. The exact final retail price has yet to be announced.
Back in April, we shared a video showing how crazy 512GB of storage is for a camera — on a Nikon D4s, you can shoot 13,800 16MP RAW photos and 347,000 JPEGs.
