We discussed about the current state of memory cards 45 days ago. At that time, the 64GB SDXC Card was the maximum possible storage available for SD slots and micro-SD slots. This year, Lexar has taken the title for the largest capacity card with the announcement of 128GB SDXC class-10 card with maximum read speed of 20 MB/s! The SDXC memory card is ideally suited for capturing, storing and managing 1080p High definition videos or to capture high-resolution photographs at 20 mega pixels!
“The professional photography industry is at a point where digital photo- and video-capture methods are converging, meaning that professional shooters need a memory solution with the versatility and reliability to safely store both photos and videos,” said Pachi Chen-Wong, senior product marketing manager, Lexar Media. “The 64GB and 128GB Lexar Professional 133x SDXC cards combine high-speed performance with large capacities to offer solutions for professionals who shoot large volumes of high-resolution images and HD video.”
