Lexar Announces 1000x CompactFlash Memory Card

2012 PMA Lexar Memory Cards News

Lexar Announces 1000x CompactFlash Memory CardIn a pre-CES tradeshow release, Lexar has announced a new 1000x CompactFlash (CF) memory card for digital still photographers and HD DSLR videographers. The Lexar Professional 1000x CompactFlash card has a guaranteed 150MB per second minimum sustained read speed and will come in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. The Lexar Professional 1000x CF card also supports the VPG-20 (Video Performance Guarantee) specification, which means, “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.”

Although Lexar’s new 1000x CompactFlash card will improve in camera performance for still photos and video, it will also minimize the time it takes to download photos and videos to the computer. In fact, I think that’s where the improvement will be most obvious. Until you fill the buffer in your camera, the memory card speed doesn’t make any difference. But when you delete or transfer files, it’s all about the card speed. Besides speed, the Lexar Professional 1000x CompactFlash card comes with Image Rescue software, a product I can personally vouch for as I’ve (unfortunately) encountered more than a few corrupted memory cards. The Lexar Professional memory cards also include a lifetime warranty and free technical support.

The Lexar Professional 1000x CompactFlash cards will be in stores in February of 2012 and sell for $169.99 (16GB), $299.99 (32GB), $529.99 (64GB), and $899.99 (128GB).
