Good news for photographers and video buffs both - Lexar Media has begun shipping its Professional 133x SDHC memory cards in 16GB and 32GB capacities to retail outlets, the company announced on Tuesday.
The new cards carry a Class 10 speed rating, the highest rating available, and offer sustained write speeds of 133x, or 20MB/s. At 32GB, Lexar says there's enough storage capacity to hold 736 minutes of video, 8,000 MP3s encoded at 128kbps, or 12,800 photos taken with an 8MP camera.
"As camera manufacturers introduce new models that capture both photo and video content, photographers need memory solutions that keep up with their evolving shooting needs,” said Manisha Sharma, director of worldwide memory card product marketing, Lexar Media. “With the 16GB and 32GB capacities of the Lexar Professional SDHC cards, photographers can shoot longer without having to switch cards and potentially miss an amazing image. Photographers everywhere understand the benefits of increased capacities, and we’re pleased to be offering these cards to them through our extensive channel network.”
The cards are available now through Adorama and B&H for about $110 (16GB) and $190 (32GB).
