Ultra-fast UDMA 6 compliant CF card announced. Plus buy any Lexar pro-range card and receive 30% off Adobe Lightroom 2...

The Lexar 600x is a new generation of professional CompactFlash card capable of 90MB/sec write speeds when paired with a UDMA 6 compliant DSLR. Currently the Canon EOS 1D mkIV, Nikon D3s, Canon EOS 7D, Nikon D3x and Canon EOS 5D mkII  can take full advantage of these ultra-fast write speeds – those cameras with wider bus capacities by more than others.

Included in the purchase of any pro-range Lexar card is a lifetime warranty and the new Image Rescue 4 program. Should IR4 fail to restore your pictures due to unusual damage, there is even a dedicated technical support hotline for assistance that will attempt to retrieve your images – even if it means posting the card to the factory for special measures of attention.

Complimenting the card range are Firewire 800, USB 2.0 and PCI ExpressCard

readers for the fastest possible transfer to your computer.

Furthermore any purchase of a pro-range Lexar card – the 600x, 300x, 233x or 133x – and you will be eligible to 30% discount off Adobe Lightroom 2, Adobe Elements 8, Adobe Premiere Elements 8, or any combination or individual purchase of those three. With Lightroom 2 retailing for around £229, a £68 saving would certainly make for a happy purchase.

The Lexar 600x range will be available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities, priced at £149, £219 and £399 respectively. No sign of a 64GB card as yet though…
