It took a few months longer than its 256 GB compact flash card, but Lexar has finally announced a matching 256GB SDXC card that makes it oh-so-easy to lose or misplace a quarter terabyte of photographs. To put that in perspective, if you were shooting full resolution, full quality JPGs with the Sony RX100, you'd be able to snap just under 80,000 shots before needing to swap out your card.
The Professional 400x 256GB SDXC UHS-I is a Class 10 card that boasts a guaranteed sustained transfer speed — at least when reading data — of 60MB per second. Just make sure you're using it with a card reader that can keep up. And, not surprisingly, when it's available next month Lexar expects you to cough up $US900 for the privilege of rarely having to delete photos off your camera. [Lexar via PetaPixel]
