Lexar today announced that it has expanded its product line with the introduction of a 133x speed-rated Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) flash memory card designed for professional and high-end amateur photographers.

The company says the new card will deliver a minimum sustained write speed capability of 20MB per second.

“The RAW workflow capabilities of these new cards allow users to fully exploit the great flexibility and image quality that DSLR cameras offer. Capturing large RAW files on smaller-sized cards was a limitation in the past, but our Professional 4GB SDHC card removes this limitation. SDHC-based camera users can now benefit from the many advantages of high-capacity storage that CompactFlash-based system users have always enjoyed”, said John Omvik, Director of Professional Product Marketing, Lexar.

In addition to free dedicated technical support and a limited lifetime warranty, Lexar Professional SDHC memory cards come with a comprehensive suite of valuable software available for free download, including Lexar Image Rescue 3 and Corel Paint Shop Pro X.

The new Lexar Professional SDHC cards will be available in March.
