I saw that article over there. Anyway with the kind of shooting I do I can't even fill up my 32 gig Extreme Pro; and I'm shooting a D800E which kicks out 72+ meg RAW files.

Nice card but not for the normal everyday shooter.

Wouldn't last long if you were shooting 2160p video (~70 seconds?).

Hi there

Where this WOULD be useful is for AUDIO recording at live gigs (including classical music / opera ) at LOSSLESS or very high quality audio. I'm currently using an older PRO minidisc recorder (minidiscs still used at PRO level) - the modern portable recorders often have fixed storage and recording time at HQ audio is limited - a 512GB card is "Just what the doctor ordered" - but at a price - i'm sure the cost of these will come down.

Cheers
jimbo
