I'm thinking of getting a new memory card ( SanDisk Extreme PRO 256 GB SDXC Memory Card Class 10 ) fro my trusty Nikon D800, however, when I look at the list of officially approved compatible memory cards,
they go only up to 128GB.

I suspect this might be just the case of the Nikon not updating their list regularly enough,
but it would be nice to get some confirmation from people having this camera and using this memory card!

Anybody tried this combination?

Err you are answering your own question  :o

But anyway why would you want such a large storage card?

If you lose the card or it gets damaged or corrupted you'll be really down in the dumps losing thousands of images :(


I did answer my own question as a courtesy for other photographers that might be searching for answers to the same question.

and why would I want such large card?

My camera has 35mpix and single average RAW file about 80mb. I'm shooting raw+large jpg. So that fills the card pretty quickly.

So let's say I go for a 2 weeks holiday to Asia and will do some shots there, and I won't have the option to upload or download these images, so I need to have fairly big storage to be able to shoot.

Plus if I needed to do some timelapse or videos, I would need not just one but a couple of such cards.

I think a few posts got lost when the server moved.  I'm guessing the card worked in your camera?
