While you might think a 8GB memory card would suffice on a day out, with DSLRs increasingly shooting HD video it's surprising how quickly they fill up.

And with that in mind, Lexar have just rolled out a whopping 256 GB CompactFlash card, the Lexar Professional 400X. Ideal if you've pre-ordered a Nikon D4.

“More professional photographers and enthusiasts are embracing the fact that they can capture high-quality images and HD video with their digital SLR." said Manisha Sharma, director of product marketing for cards, Lexar.

"As a result, they’re shooting longer and longer, and need a storage solution that won’t interrupt the creative process.

"The new capacities of the Lexar Professional 400x CF card empower photographers to just keep shooting, without the need to change cards or risk missing once-in-a-lifetime shots or footage."
