Lexar has added high-speed CompactFlash and Secure Digital cards to its flash memory line-up. Designed for use with digital SLRs, the Professional Series cards are speed rated 133X with a minimum write speed of 20MB a second. Incorporated into the cards is Lexar Write Acceleration Technology, which enables supported cameras to exchange and store images more quickly. This, Lexar claims , results in near-instantaneous transfer speeds. John Omvik from Lexar comments: ‘Our new 133X cards allow digital SLR cameras to optimally perform… to transfer images and information almost instantaneously, beneficial in a number of ways to the photographer’s digital imaging workflow.’ Supplied with each card is: photo-recovery program Image Rescue 2.0, a USB 2.0 card reader and a trial version of browsing software Photo Mechanic 4.0. Available in March, the Professional Series CompactFlash and Secure Digital cards come with a lifetime warranty. Find out more at www.lexar.com.
