80X, or 12MB per second, Lexar Media is providing the fastest CompactFlash with guaranteed write speeds available, serving the needs of professional photographers and all digital camera users requiring faster image write times. Lexar is offering its 80X Professional Series CompactFlash cards in five different capacities, including 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.
80X CF cards include an enhanced version of Write Acceleration technology, which optimizes the cards' firmware to reduce overhead associated with transferring data from the camera to the memory card, and improves in-camera performance in high-resolution CompactFlash based cameras.
In addition, Lexar's new Write Acceleration provides a larger controller buffer to accommodate transferring up to 32 sectors of data to the card in one command, in cameras supporting this feature. CompactFlash cards without Write Acceleration typically transfer only one sector of data at a time.
The cards include a free copy of Lexar's award-winning Image Rescue 2.0 software to recover seemingly lost or deleted images from memory cards. Image Rescue 2.0 now recovers images from any memory card format or brand, and for added convenience, can be used with all mass storage compliant card readers including USB 2.0, USB 1.1 and FireWire readers.
Professionals know that a single image can be more valuable than all their equipment combined. To risk losing an award-winning image because of a hard diskfailure or breakdown is unacceptable. Lexar Media's solid-state design provides the ultimate reliability in harsh shooting environments, mandated by professionals throughout the world. And with built-in USB functionality, Lexar Media's Card Readers can quickly transfer your large images to your computer quickly and easily - up to 25 times faster than a serial cable connection - providing you more shooting time. You also save camera battery life by eliminating inconvenient tethered downloads
