SanDisk's new 1TB SD card is quite the card, perfect for those moving into 4K video production, upcoming 6K and 8K formats, 360-degree and VR video, and more. Sam Nicholson, CEO of Stargate Studios and also a member of the American Society of Cinematographers said that SanDisk really has owned the storage market.

Nicholson said: "Just a few short years ago the idea of a 1TB capacity point in an SD card seemed so futuristic - it's amazing that we're now at the point where it's becoming a reality. With the growing demand for applications like VR, we can certainly use 1TB when we're out shooting continuous high-quality video. High-capacity cards allow us to capture more without interruption, streamlining our workflow, and eliminating the worry that we may miss a moment because we have to stop to swap out cards".

SanDisk hasn't released any pricing on the 1TB SD card, but I'm sure I can be confident in telling you to prepare your wallets. But, this is a beast of an SD card, with professionals now able to tote around multiple gigabytes of data thanks to 1TB SD cards.
