Even though the vast majority of consumer cameras and camcorders are using the SD card format these days, there are still a number of professional cameras that use the larger but faster CF format. If you’re looking to score a deal on some super-fast CompactFlash, the range of Lexar Professional 1000x UDMA7 CFcards are now on sale for up to 62% off.
The Lexar Professional 1000x CF cards uses something called UDMA 7 technology. This allows the memory cards to get industry leading 1000x minimum guaranteed read transfer speeds. That works out to 150MB/s. These cards are well-suited for DSLRs that utilize high burst rates, for example, or higher end camcorders that want to capture 1080p full HD, especially 3D video. Speaking of video, these Lexar CF cards support the Video Performance Guarantee VPG-20 specification for professional-quality video.
Of course, to take advantage of those super fast UDMA 7 speeds, you’ll need to have a UDMA 7 enabled card reader. With that combination, you’ll vastly improve your workflow, getting the pictures and videos from your camera to your computer in a much faster or more efficient manner. And since it’s coming from a well-known and respected brand like Lexar, you can be sure you’re getting reliability and quality too.
