Lexar increases performance of high-capacity CompactFlash to 133X
Fremont, (BUSINESS WIRE) July 18_Lexar Media, Inc., a leader in advanced digital media and accessories, today announced that it has increased the performance of its popular Professional 8GB CompactFlash(R) memory card to 133X. This performance improves the digital imaging workflow for both professional and advanced amateur photographers working with and managing large files. Lexar's new card is capable of a minimum sustained data write speed of 20MB per second and is currently available in CompactFlash Type I flash memory card format, the most popular format for today's digital SLR cameras.
"Lexar has encouraged photographers to 'keep shooting' while consistently introducing products that improve digital imaging workflow once images are stored on their flash memory cards," said John Omvik, director of professional product marketing, Lexar.
"Those who shoot in RAW format require a vast amount of storage capacity, but also need reliable high-speed performance at all steps in the digital imaging process. Our new 133X 8GB cards directly address and satisfy both needs and, as a result, are ideal for photographers shooting in all situations," he added.
Lexar's new 133X 8GB CompactFlash will be available in August for the suggested price of $424.99.
