Lexar New Professional Memory Cards


With speed and capacity upgrades

Fremont, CA, January 5, 2010 – Lexar Media, a leading global provider of memory products for digital media, today announced improvements to the Professional line of CompactFlash® (CF) and Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC™) memory cards for an enhanced imaging experience. Lexar has increased the capacity of Professional 300x CF cards to 32GB, and Professional 233x CF cards are now available in 16GB and 32GB capacities. In addition, the Lexar Professional 133x SDHC card has achieved a Class 10 speed rating. The improvements to the Lexar® Professional line allow professional photographers and advanced enthusiasts to capture more high-resolution images and high-definition (HD) video with their digital SLRs. For additional information about the Lexar Professional CF and SDHC cards, visit www.lexar.com.

The Lexar Professional 133x SDHC memory card now offers the maximum Class 10 speed rating, providing a blazing-fast minimum sustained write speed capability of 133x (20MB per second) for shooting higher-resolution images and large-sized, high-definition video files with SDHC-enabled devices. Additionally, the Lexar Professional 133x SDHC card significantly improves camera performance and image transfer speeds from card to computer, reducing post-production time and enabling shooters to focus on the business of photography.

“Professional photographers can’t afford to miss important shots because their memory cards can’t keep up,” said Manisha Sharma, director of memory card product marketing, Lexar Media. “Lexar’s high-capacity, high-performance memory cards enable shooters to reliably capture more images without having to change cards and potentially miss a shot. The enhancements we’ve made to these cards further demonstrate our dedication to satisfying consumer demand with the equipment photographers want and need to maximize their digital imaging experience.”

Lexar Professional CF memory cards in all capacities offer impressive speed and performance, with a guaranteed minimum sustained write speed capability of 233x (35MB per second) and 300x (45MB per second) for enhanced capture capabilities. When paired with a UDMA-enabled device, such as the Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire® 800 Reader or the Lexar Professional UDMA Dual-Slot USB Reader, Lexar Professional CF and SDHC cards significantly improve the digital imaging workflow by accelerating the download of captured images to a destination computer.

“Lexar Professional memory cards help me capture the best images possible and these higher capacities will allow me to shoot longer without changing cards, which is vital when working in a nautical environment,” said Lexar Elite Photographer, Onne van der Wal, who is renowned for his nautical and sailing photography. “It’s essential that I have the most dependable and advanced equipment available and that’s why I trust Lexar to protect my work. Lexar has always understood the details of a professional’s workflow process and I look forward to integrating the new high-capacity, higher-speed Professional cards into my routine.”
