Lexar Media hates it when you run out of space in your swanky DSLR, and so they're hoping you'll pick up their new Class 10 133x SDXC memory cards. The new 64GB and 128GB cards offer a minimum guaranteed transfer speed of 20MB per second, suitable for lengthy 1080p HD video recording or burst high-res photography.

That sort of speed and capacity isn't cheap, though, as you'd imagine, and so you'll need to dig deep to pick up the new Lexar cards. They'll drop sometime in Q1 2011, priced at $399.99 for the 64GB and $699.99 for the 128GB.
