Lexar intros 16GB CF card
Portable storage device maker Lexar on Tuesday announced it has doubled the storage capacity of its current 8GB UDMA CF card with the upcoming release of a higher capacity Compact Flash memory card, the 16GB Professional UDMA 300x. The 300x speed rating translates to sustained write speeds of 45MBps, which is quick enough to keep up with most modern digital SLR cameras' burst shooting modes. Meant for professional photographers, the Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) interface allows time savings in post-production time when used in conjunction with another UDMA-enabled device.
No prices have yet been announced, but with the 8GB UDMA 300x CF card listed at nearly $270 on Lexar's webstore, a price north of $300 is likely. The card will be available later this month. [via Crave]
