Lexar’s Perfect Video Card is Here!
Lexar has announced and is shipping their new 300x 32GB CF Card. I’ve been shooting one for awhile and rely on it as my Slot 2 card in the D3s. What’s a Slot 2 card? In the D3s, you can assign all video clips be stored in one particular slot. With the Lexar 32GB card in Slot 2, where I have it assigned, I can store as many as 16, 5min clips. It works great and I love the speed. I have no doubt that someone will post a speed performance review shortly, it just won’t be me. Just the size makes it great for my shooting needs. What’s in Slot 1 you wonder? I have the Lexar 16GB 600x in slot one for all my still shooting. I remember getting excited when the 128MB card came out in 2000 and now I have 48GB loaded in the camera….Wow! But wait, there’s more!
Lexar’s 64GB Echo ZE Backup is so small, I think I’ll loose it but I know it won’t loose the data. How small is it, click here to see just how small I’m talkin. I’m told this will be available in a couple of months. Not soon enough for me. Oh, did you go check out just how small it is, isn’t that bloody amazing! And to top off this Lexar feast, I want to remind you of my favorite PCIe slot reader.
You can order all these goodies (and a lot more) from my bud Jeff Snyder (at Adorama). Keep in mind the Echo 64GB isn’t available yet but I bet you can order it and be the first on your block to receive it! And on the note of full disclosure, I am not paid for any of this. I receive early product as a beta tester and have the ability to purchase cards first which sadly, I do with reckless abandon! Why? I know that Lexar stands behind their product. If something goes wrong, you can count on them.
