Music video directors, photographers and road-trippers hoping to record piles of video on Spring Break can now quickly save high-definition content to, and transfer images from, SDXC memory cards in beefy 64GB and 128GB capacities.
Capable of storing snapshots, 1080p HD movie clips and more, the Class 10 speed rating cards from Lexar, which offer 20MB/second data transfer rates, also cut down copying times, making it easy to share and back up archived footage. Designed with dedicated shutterbugs in mind, the high-performance units cost $199.99 and $329.99, respectively, but spare the need to constantly shuttle images between your camera and PC to free up space.
Given the high price, it’s no surprise they also include a limited lifetime warranty and dedicated technical support. Still, those who can afford the upgrade needn’t worry (at least about technical difficulties) the next time a blitzed buddy decides to stick his head in the shark tank and invites you to snap away.
