The next-generation SD cards, SDXC will increase the storage capacity from 32 GB up to 2 TB.




A 2 TB SDXC memory card can store 100 HD movies, 480 hours of HD recording. Faster bus speeds will enable professional-level recording in compact consumer camcorders & increase the number of frames shot in a second with SDXC cameras.

2TB storage possible on SDXC cards

the big shortcoming they need to fix is format. If it's not able to be formatted in NTFS......it doesn't matter how much capacity it has......

I wonder if it make sense to hold off purchasing a camcorder ... to get one with SDXC support.


32GB is a bit limiting, and it would be nice if the camcorder accept larger cards.

At 17Mbps, 32Gb is 4 hours of full res recording in my HF100. At 24Mbps (the max for AVC I think) that's still gotta be at least 3 hours.


That's not enough?


SDXC has been announced, but I haven't heard of anything using it yet. Buy something now and upgrade when they are out and are more affordable.

On a long vacation, it's nice to be able to take just 1 card ... and no need to swap between cards

SDXC is still a long way to go. Maybe in the next 2-5 years. They're not just gonna jump from 32GB to 2TB just like that. There will be SD cards this year in 64GB and up format. It will take a while before they'll get to 2TB. And can you just imagine the price tag on it? 1G+?

Very true. However, that's a lot of data to loose or break.


I have 5 hours available, spread over 3 cards. They don't take up that much space, and considerably less than the DV tapes that I used to use.


It's also a lot easier to remove the small unwanted clips as well. May not get much space back.

2 TB is amazing. Canon's website notes this technology will be out in the first quarter of 2009. I wonder if this technology will affect the longevity of the AVCHD format. I'm no expert, but it seems to me that if they can get solid state storage like that, then why would they not come up with a newer less compressed format?

grybrd, could u post a link to that? thanks

I cannot find it there now. What I remember was a footnote noting that the technology will be out in "Q1 of 2009". It did not mention any product availability. I looked elsewhere and found an article at:

http://www.gizmag.com/sdxc-memory-ca...-format/10705/


The article notes what will actually be available in the first quarter of 2009.

The SDXC spokesman said 5 years to get to 2TB. If and when they get to 2TB, the prices will probably be less than for 32 gigs now.

Since the January press release, there's been nothing. Too good to be true? Manufacturing problems? Anyone got anything?

I bought my first HD camcorder this month (stepped up from my previous camcorder, a Hi-8/D8 from the mid-1990s). I am not kicking myself thinking I should have waited for SDXC.

-- SDHC cards are a commodity, meaning they are plentiful and relatively inexpensive. If I lose one, I wouldn't cry over it (assuming I'd already offloaded the video, of course). I'd rather have several 16 GB (85 minutes at 24 Mbps) or 32 GB (170 minutes at 24 Mbps) cards than one more-expensive SDXC card.

-- The FAT32 formatting on current SDHC cards actually does one favor for us: it is a contributor to the feature of long clips being stored as 1.9 GB (on my Canon HF S100) chunks. For editing in Sony Vegas Pro 9, that's a good thing. Dropping a 1 GB or 2 GB file on the timeline is quick, but dropping a 30 GB file on the timeline bogs the computer down for a very long time...

SDXC is all about future. Current 32GB limit on SDHC is no doubt hindering its long term viability for future flash storage capability, especially for HD video storage. But that doesn't mean you will see flood of 2TB SDXCs coming to market anytime soon. 32GB SDHC is still way too expensive for most consumers. You will probably see a few 64GB SDXC in coming years at even higher prices.


As for FAT32, the new SDXC will use the new FAT system called exFAT, not NTFS, to tackle the 4GB file size limit problem.

You can never win. There is always going to be something better on the horizon.


Just get something now and use it for years.
