When you’re out and about shooting street photography, there are a few concerns when it comes to hardware, one of which is how long until your battery runs out, and how many photos can you take before your memory card is full? The latter will depend on the size and quality you choose, such as RAW photos which take up a lot more space.

If you do shoot a lot in RAW or if you just want to keep shooting and not worry about storage, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Lexar has launched the world’s first 1TB SD memory card. It has been pointed out a couple of years ago, SanDisk actually announced a 1TB SD memory card, but that memory card has yet to officially materialize which means that as far as being first to the market is concerned, Lexar has SanDisk beat.

The Lexar 1TB 633x SDXC UHS-I will feature read speeds of up to 95MB/s and a video recording speed class of V30. According to Lexar Senior Marketing Manager Joey Lopez, “Almost fifteen years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD card. Today, we are excited to announce 1TB of storage capacity in the same convenient form factor.”

The SD card is currently available for purchase from BHPhoto but unfortunately it does not come cheap with an asking price of $400.
