Lexar Increases Performance of High-Capacity CompactFlash

Lexar Media has increased the performance of its popular Professional 8GB CompactFlash memory card to 133X. This performance improves the digital imaging workflow for both professional and advanced amateur photographers working with and managing large files. Lexar's new card is capable of a minimum sustained data write speed of 20MB per second and is currently available in CompactFlash Type I flash memory card format, the most popular format for today's digital SLR cameras.

Well-known professional photographer Howard Schatz has incorporated Lexar's high-capacity CompactFlash cards into his digital imaging workflow, which often begins when he shoots with his Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II in an underwater housing. Howard chose Lexar cards because of their reliability and vast storage capacity, which can hold a large number of images on each card. As a result, the cards are ideal for this and other shooting situations where the photographer has less time to change cards or where changing cards is inconvenient.

The new 8GB CompactFlash includes the full version of Lexar Image Rescue 2.0, the company's award-winning image recovery software, and Paint Shop Pro 9, the image editing and management software program from Corel.
