Lexar Media today announced the Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CompactFlash (CF) card, a new memory card that provides an ideal combination of increased capacity, professional-level performance and reliability.
Designed for professional photographers and photo enthusiasts, this lightning-fast card is UDMA-enabled (Ultra Direct Memory Access), resulting in exceedingly fast performance. Speed-rated at 300x, which represents a minimum sustained write speed of 45MB per second, the new Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CF card dramatically reduces post-production time thanks to an improved card-to-computer transfer rate when working in conjunction with a UDMA-enabled device. In addition, the very high capacity of the card allows photographers to store more images and shoot for longer periods without interruption.
In many unique shooting circumstances where changing a memory card is not possible, the large capacity of the Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CF card is particularly valuable. Professional photographer Howard Schatz, who is well-known for his underwater photography, recently incorporated the new Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CF card into his workflow and found it to be a highly productive experience.
When paired with a UDMA-enabled device, such as the Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire 800 Reader or the Lexar Professional UDMA Dual-Slot USB Reader, the Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CF card significantly improves the digital imaging workflow by accelerating the download of captured images to a destination computer.
Available later this month, the new Lexar Professional UDMA 16GB CF card includes a limited lifetime warranty, free dedicated technical support, and the full version of Lexar Image Rescue 3, Lexar's award-winning image recovery software. In addition, customers who purchase a Lexar Professional 300x UDMA CF card are entitled to download a free six-month subscription to Corel Painter Essentials 4 software, a popular application that allows users to sketch, paint, and transform their photos into paintings.
Lexar will be displaying the Professional UDMA 16GB cards at Photokina 2008 at stand F022 E023 in hall 04.1.
