    SanDisk or all companies need to produce V90/UHS-II SD cards for DLSR cameras. The fastest rated cards stop at 128gb! Sure there is 512gb versions, but the read/write speeds are far too slow.

    I have x8 of these Sandisk Extreme Pro 128 GB 300mb/s UHS-II Class 10 U3 SDXC cards.

    I don't care about Micro -SD cards for mobile phones.

    Come on SanDisk make 1TB versions of these cards for DSLR cameras please!

    The "era" of low capacity MicroSD's is coming to an end! :D

    Most DSLRs write really slow to SD cards. A D850 writes at 90mb/s max to it's SD card. A faster card won't help you out.
    Even the A7III tops out at 147mb/s.

    There is no camera that can take advantage of a 300mb/s SDcard right now and the majority of cameras out there write way slower than 60mb/s.
    Even Pro bodies with CF cards don't write at 300mb/s.

    HOORAY!
    i've been waiting on this.
    i love photography, but this is going to be 100% audio for my lossless files.
    right now the 512gb sdxc has dropped in price almost 50% vs the release almost a year ago.
    i'm extremely tired of choosing which artists to carry on my phone, now i can have enough of my library not to care.
    and my phone has has unlimited compatibility w/ sdxc up to the theoretical limit of 2Tb

    Just out of curiousity, may I ask for phone model and headphones or eaphones or wired/wireless speakers you are using to reproduce that lossless audio?

    LG V-40 ThinQ has (basically) a $400 dac built-in
    i use Focal Listen headphones (if i need to take a call) which IMHO is the highest value headphone on the market, the Focal Elegia at home, the NuForce BeSport4 for the gym (and the only use for bluetooth besides the car), the OneMore Triple driver IEM for trekking.

    as a note - no phone on the market can even come close to the sound of the LG (V-20,30,40 and G6).
    it can record 24/192 audio from four microphones and make the best sounding videos on the market. the camera is very good (5 cameras actually) but suffers in low light compared to Apple and Samsung.
    the LG can accommodate up to 2tb sdxc.

    Audiophile magazine rates the LG V series above many separate dacs on the market and tested it against a $1,200 dac...which suffered by comparison.
    based on my experience in Consumer Electronics (i was one of the guys training the media and the public on Digital Audio at the very beginning) and as the owner of the very first dac on the market (Meridian $$$) i will say this:

    if you already have a dac you like, the audio difference between non-LG phones is minimal.
    if you don't have a dac, and have a phone you want to upgrade buy LG (several models with "quad-dac").
    if you have a phone but want a dac, don't spend more than what the LG costs, just buy the LG as the only competitive dac (Chord Mojo) costs as much as the phone.

    if you want lossless audio, have perfectly good phone, want a dac, but aren't made of money buy the Micca OriGen G2 around $125.00 - a very good well balanced dac/ headphone amp with a volume knob.

    BTW...LG phones have a real headphone jack, no extra conversions (like Apple).

    oh speakers...
    i'm an audiophile in my 50's so...my rig is quite expensive and acquired over years. i use a balanced preamp (i modded myself - the McIntosh C-32, with the RME ADI2DAC as my dac, (the phone's an auxiliary input), a Rega Planar turntable with a Sumiko Blue Point cartridge, MSI GE-62 MVR 7RG laptop (ESS dac...but using the RME),
    Focal BE 6 Twin active monitors (actual studio monitors used in actual high end studios).

    i would say to anyone on a budget under $1,000 to get the Vanatoo Transparent One Encore at around $600.00
    for a lower budget o would suggest Audioengine or Edifier (which oems many inexpensive speakers that look exactly the same).

    I will never try out high quality audio devices.
    Because if I do, it's like with everything else, you can't get rest until you have the best or go broke.
