It’s often said that any camera is only as good as the lens attached to it. It’s equally true that any high performance digital camera is only as good as the memory card that stores all your precious data. 

As a professional or enthusiast photographer or videographer using one of the latest high-end cameras, you need a card that unleashes its full potential in terms of speed, while also being utterly reliable and dependable. That’s where the new Lexar Professional 1800x SDXC UHS-II Card GOLD Series comes in.

Let’s talk speed. When shooting bursts of top-quality stills at super-fast frame rates, the last thing you need is to have your creativity put on hold while the camera clears its memory buffer to your memory card. With write speeds of up to 180MB/s, Lexar’s GOLD cards won’t slow you down and you’ll avoid the risk of missing vital, unrepeatable shots. The same goes for capturing extended 4K video footage even at high frame rates and quality settings, thanks to the GOLD Series’ UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 60 (V60) certification.
