Great news for high resolution content creators today as Lexar announced double the capacity in the Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 memory card range. The 3500x CFast 2.0 cards will now go up to 512GB of capacity making them perfect for cinematographers and filmmakers that capture 4K and ProRes video and RAW photos.
Key features of the 512GB card include:
- Read transfer speeds up to 525MB/s
- Write speeds up to 445MB/s
- Suitable for capturing the highest-quality 4K video and beyond
- High-speed file transfers
- Version optimised for ARRI® cameras to come soon
“As professional imaging technology continues to advance, it’s crucial that memory storage formats keep pace with ever-evolving data needs. When shooting 200 FPS on a high-end, production-level camera, it’s easy to fill up an entire 256GB card with content in just 17 minutes. Comparatively, the new Professional 512GB 3500x CFast 2.0 card can capture up to more than twice that time. It’s essential that professional content creators shooting in bandwidth-heavy applications such as RAW, 4K, burst-mode, time-lapse, and beyond have access to increasingly higher capacities and faster transfer speeds like those offered by the new 512GB Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card.” – Mathew Luu, Micron Consumer Products Group Marketing Manager APAC.
The new 512GB Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card will be available in Q1 of 2017 with an RRP of AUD$2,549.95 and NZD$2,599.95.
