Cameras have evolved a lot over the years, especially DSLRs. These shooters have now been equipped with features that make taking high-quality images and high-resolution videos easier. Take, for example, the up-and-coming Nikon D800. This powerhouse of a camera can record 1080p video and capture shots with its 36-megapixel sensor, which is great for media quality. But there’s only one problem: usually, great quality translates to huge gigabytes of space required for storage.
To meet this need, Lexar is one among various digital media manufacturers who started making memory cards that pack whopping amounts of memory. Just last month, the firm announced that they will be releasing a 256GB CF card within the first half of this year.
However, if your needs are more immediate, then you might want to pick up these Lexar CF 1000x cards that are now up and available on B&H Photo. The retailer’s site indicates that the cards can ship out in 7-14 days after you’ve placed your order.
The memory cards are available in capacities of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. They’re also faster than ever at 1000x, which means you can transfer images and videos at speeds of up to 150 MB/s.
Lexar unveiled these 1000x memory cards just last month, stating:
The new card provides professional photographers and advanced photo and video enthusiasts with blazing-fast 150MB per second minimum guaranteed sustained read speed. The Lexar Professional 1000x CF card supports the VPG-20 specification, meaning the card has been tested and guaranteed for professional video capture streams at up to 20MB per second, ensuring professional-quality video at high frame rates with no dropped frames.
In addition, the Lexar Professional 1000x CF memory card helps accelerate the digital photography workflow, helping clear the camera’s buffer for uninterrupted shooting and quickly transferring images and video from the memory card to the computer, when paired with a UDMA 7-enabled reader such as the Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual Slot Reader.
