If you fill up a 1TB memory card and then go to download it to your computer you'll need a pretty big hard drive with lots of spare capacity. How long does it take to download 1TB from a card reader anyway?

Also, I've had the misfortune of losing a couple microSD cards over the years. The biggest one was only 64GB Samsung EVO and while I was bummed about that one at the time it was really not all that big a deal. I'd sure hate to lose a 1TB card though or even a 512GB.

Yeah i feel 256 GB are more than enough, at least with current cameras.
But a 4K camera spitting out 100 mbit H.264 footage, or 60 mbit or so H.265, and suddenly 256GB are not that much.
TBH i am hoping for H.265 or similar as my computer will handle that just fine, and if the cops got a problem with that,,,,, well then its their problem.

Yes, for a proper 4K camera that has 4x the bitrate of a 1080 camera, as it should, a 256GB card is only the equivalent of a 64GB for that 1080 camera, and if you have a dual camera then you really want a 512GB card. We will have to wait another year for 2TB cards to be released and the 1TB cards to drop to a sensible price before the 1TB cards and 8K 360 degree cameras become sensible.
