Lexar Media has announced that it is now shipping its Lexar Professional Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) 133x memory card in 64GB ($200) and 128GB ($330) capacities. The latter is an industry first, meaning that you won't find 128GB SDXC cards from anyone else.
With these larger capacities, Lexar Professional 133x SDXC cards are better for shooting continuous, rapid-fire images as well as extended lengths of 1080p HD video. They also offer a Class 10 speed rating with a minimum guaranteed speed of 133x (20MBps), a limited lifetime warranty, and free technical support. This Lexar series also comes with the company's Image Rescue software, which helps recover lost or deleted photo and video files.
"We saw a demand for a professional card that would allow photographers to not only capture more high-resolution images and HD video, but to also take advantage of the full capabilities of their high-performance digital SLRs and camcorders," Pachi Chen-Wong, senior product marketing manager at Lexar Media, said in a statement. "With the new Lexar Professional SDXC cards, we developed a product that will enhance the professional photography workflow. With capacities of 64GB and 128GB, photographers can capture, store and transfer more images and HD video in one place than ever before."
