“High-end amateur and professional photographers are increasingly capturing RAW digital images or high-definition videos which chew through memory capacity quickly due to the large file sizes” said Richard Clarke, Lexar Media’s ANZ national sales manager. “The increased storage space the Lexar Professional 600x and 300x 32GB cards offer allows you to photograph and film more of the memories that matter, when paired with the Professional ExpressCard CF Reader the cards also provide enhanced file transfer speeds. We’re pleased to be offering these workflow-improving solutions to our extensive network of photo resellers.”
