Here at PMA in Anaheim, SanDisk has just announced that they’ve begun shipping the 64GB Ultra SDXC card—the company’s highest capacity SD card ever, and the successor to the SDHC format cards. For video folks, the 64GB capacity SDXC, with up to 15MB/sec read speed2 and Class 4 speed rating, is ideal for capturing and storing massive 1080p HD video files and then transferring them quickly to a computer. But, as SanDisk says, “Because the SD 3.0 specification was recently released, only a handful of devices may be immediately available that support SDXC cards. However, the pace of new camera model introduction supporting the SDXC format is accelerating. Canon announced at CES that all of its new VIXIA camcorder models and PowerShot cameras are compatible with SDXC cards.” The 64GB Ultra SDXC card is priced at $349.99.

It’s not often you read the words “revolutionary” and “flash memory card” in the same sentence. Sure, memory cards get faster every year and they can store more images, but there really hasn’t been much to talk about. Until now.
The Eye Fi is the first flash memory card to offer something unique: a truly innovative wireless photography solution. Take almost any digital camera with an SD card slot, drop in the Eye Fi card and voila, you have a wireless digital camera!
