You Can Now Slap a Quarter Terabyte of Storage In Your Camera [Storage]

It took a few months longer than its 256 GB compact flash card, but Lexar has finally announced a matching 256 GB 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. More »

Feel Free To Run Samsung’s New Memory Cards Over With A Truck

samsungcards

There’s little doubt that Samsung knows how to put together a handsome television or smartphone, but to produce a stylish memory card — well that’s another story entirely. Samsung’s certainly willing to give it a shot though, and the end result is their new line of brushed metal SD and microSD cards.

I doubt I’m the only one who doesn’t care what my memory cards look like so long as they get the job done, especially because they spend 95% of their time nestled inside a camera. Still, these fashionista-friendly cards will certainly do the trick in your device of choice — the High Speed Series cards range from Class 2 to Class 10, with read and write speeds in the latter class reaching as high as 24MB/s and 13MB/s respectively. The Plus Extreme series, meant for more demanding photogs, can hit write speeds up to 21MB/s.

Now that’s all well and good, but I can’t help but think Samsung went a little overboard with these things.

The cards can apparently survive being submerged in water for 24 hours, as well as withstand up to 3,200 pounds of pressure. In short, these cards seem more geared toward James Bond’s typical use cases than Joe Blow’s. Frankly, this whole thing seems like something of a challenge to me — I’m almost tempted to buy one just to do stupid, outlandish things to it in hopes of pushing it over the edge. The cards are available now, so if you’re filled with the same sort of strange, destructive impulse I’m feeling right now, check the chart below for pricing details.

Eye-Fi CEO slams SD Association’s eerily similar Wireless SD card standard, says his IP is being violated

Yuval Koren is not pleased. For those unaware, he's the CEO of Eye-Fi, the company that has practically written the rules on embedding WiFi into SD cards. If you blinked last week, you probably missed the SD Association's announcement that it had created a new Wireless LAN SD standard that would effectively give just about anyone the ability to add Eye-Fi abilities to their SD cards. As it turns out, Eye-Fi's none too pleased about it, and Koren has gone so far as to publicly admit that the standard is seriously infringing upon highly valuable Eye-Fi technology. To quote: "As [the SDA's standard is] currently written, essential Eye-Fi patented technology would be violated by anyone implementing this draft specification." Bold.

He goes on to explain that his company has invested "tens of millions of dollars and several years to create unique technology that lets people wirelessly transfer photos and videos directly from their camera and mobile devices," and calls the SDA protocol "flat out misrepresentation." He's effectively calling for the SD Association to either pony up and license Eye-Fi's tech, or scrap the "standard" and rewrite it using something else altogether. The full letter is posted up after the break, with absolutely no elation to be found.
