Lexar have just announced the release of their new Lexar Professional 1000x Compact Flash cards.
With a minimum guaranteed sustained read speed of 150MB per second, the new CF cards support the VPG-20 specification, allowing for professional video capture streams up to 20MB per second to be shot without dropped frames at high frame rates.
When paired with a UDMA 7-enabled reader, the Lexar Professional 1000x CF also speeds up transfer rates by quickly clearing the camera’s buffer.
Compatible with all UDMA CF and CF devices, Lexar’s card includes the latest version of Image Rescue software, which helps recover erased or corrupted shots.
“Professional photographers who shoot both photos and video look to Lexar for storage solutions that will enhance their digital workflow and remove the obstacles that stand in the way of the creative process,” said Manisha Sharma, director of product marketing for cards, Lexar.
“The Lexar Professional 1000x CF card offers some of the best performance available, not only for use in-camera, but also when moving images and video from the card to a computer for editing and processing. Our goal is to allow shooters to focus on capturing great shots, including high-resolution images and HD or 3D video, instead of using up precious time processing in the studio.”
Available in three sizes, the Lexar 1000x cards will cost £149.99 (16GB), £269.99 (32GB), £469.99 (64GB), and £799.99 (128GB). They will be available to buy from February.
