SanDisk releases 1 TB SD card prototype

Though it’s currently just a prototype, the mere fact that SanDisk’s 1 TB SDXC card exists is proof that first: Moore’s Law is still very applicable today; second: the current flash storage form factor will remain standard for the next couple of years; and third: science does because science can. It’s meant to handle 4K and above, virtual reality, and 360 degree content which are some of the most storage-intensive formats available today. That means content creators can shoot longer in one go, minimizing the breaks needed for changing cards or dumping files. The down side? It’s bound to be prohibitively expensive upon official release.
