Memory cards have a limited capacity. When you run out of memory on your camera, you are forced to make some tough choices. Do you delete your kids’ birthday pictures or the videos from your last vacation?

Keeping this in mind, SanDisk has invented a SD card that has a gigantic capacity of 512 GB to store more into the same amount of space.

This massive 512 GB SD card doesn’t come cheap. It has priced at whopping $800.

The new 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-I card offers incredible speed and capacity

This card can capture up to 14 hours of 4K video or 48 hours of full HD footage. It has a write speed up to 90MB/s and transfer speed up to 95MB/s. It comes under the UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) category, which is ideal for high-resolution video recordings and even 4K Ultra HD videos.

The 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO is tested for rugged conditions; it is temperature proof, shock proof and x-ray proof. SanDisk also provides a lifetime limited warranty and the RescuePRO Deluxe data recovery software that helps restore accidentally-deleted images. Just a few bonuses to go with that high price tag.
