Lexar Media’s Marketing Manager for Australia, New Zealand, and South Asia, Matthew Luu said: “The introduction of higher megapixel DSLR cameras has resulted in larger image files, meaning photographers have to swap memory cards more frequently during a shoot. Professional photographers strive for the best resolution possible but do not want this to impact on the time restrictions they have to shoot a subject. Our new Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CompactFlash card allows photographers to store twice as many photos on a single memory card removing the need to worry about running out of memory during a shoot.”
When paired with a UDMA-enabled device, such as the Lexar Professional UDMA FireWire 800 Reader or the Lexar Professional UDMA Dual-Slot USB Reader, the Lexar Professional UDMA 300x 16GB CF card significantly improves the digital imaging workflow by accelerating the download of captured images to a destination computer.
The Lexar Professional UDMA 16GB CF card includes a limited lifetime warranty, free dedicated technical support, and the full version of Lexar Image Rescue 3, Lexar’s award-winning image recovery software.
In addition, customers who purchase a Lexar Professional 300x UDMA CF card are entitled to download a free six-month subscription to Corel Painter Essentials 4 software, a popular application that allows users to transform their photos into paintings.

The Lexar Professional UDMA 16GB CF card is available now for a suggested retail price of $433.90. Lexar Professional UDMA 16GB CF memory cards are available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities.
