SanDisk announces 1TB microSD card & Sandisk special deals

    The race to increase storage capacities onto even the smallest memory cards continues. Western Digital’s SanDisk brand has launched the worlds first 1-terabyte microSD card.

    At the Mobile World Congress, the new 1TB microSD card was launched. The Sandisk UHS-I card is claimed to have read speeds up to 160MB/s and 90MB/s write speed. Of course, the card will be an SDXC card, as the standard was developed for cards between 64GB to 2TB storage capacities. SDXC cards are best formatted with exFAT to allow the larger file sizes common today.

    The card will be available from April for $449.99 retail. That’s a pretty hefty premium over the $199.99 512GB card.


    Large capacity cards for drones

    The Mavic 2 Pro and Phantom 4 Pro v2 currently accept microSD cards only up to 128GB. The question is, when will drones be able to use cards over 128GB cards. The much-awaited Phantom 5 is expected to be released in the coming months, will it be the first DJI drone to accept microSD cards over 128GB? Perhaps the Phantom 5 will take normal sized SD cards. This could point towards an increased max bitrate, a hope many have, as this would be a welcome feature of the rumored drone.

    As long as DJI consumer drones have a max bitrate of 100Mbps (12.5MB/s) the question is, do we need cards larger than 128GB? What is your strategy when it comes to memory cards? Would you rather have a few “smaller” cards and avoid the risk of losing too much footage in case something happened, or do you buy the largest card possible to avoid having to mess with changing them?
