Whether your interest lies in photography or videography or just general content creation, you’ll quickly find that everybody has advice on the type of camera, lens, and recording devices that will help improve the quality of your creations. There is one piece of equipment, however, that is often overlooked but truly is the unsung hero of a content creator’s workflow: storage. Good storage is tantamount to creativity, and nobody likes dealing with slow write speeds or corrupted files from a damaged card.
The Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Card DIAMOND Series is an excellent choice for professional creatives looking for blazing-fast storage that is also performance-tested with the additional security of a lifetime limited warranty.
Lexar has been in the storage industry since 1996, giving them 25 years of experience innovating world-class memory solutions to help support photographers, videographers, and other creators with their daily professional workflow. They know what they’re doing when it comes to creating high quality memory and storage solutions to fit the needs of today’s videographers, photographers, and content creators.
The Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Card DIAMOND Series is further evidence of Lexar’s innovation at work as it boasts 1900MB/s read speed with write speeds up to 1700MB/s, making the card suitable for capturing high-quality RAW photos as well as video in 4K, 6K, and even 8K resolution. Granted, peak write speeds can only get a video so far and what really matters the most when filming for extended periods is the card’s sustained write speed.
The Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Card DIAMOND Series 512GB card shines in this regard, as well as its minimum sustained write speeds clock in at 1600MB/s while being VGP400-compliant to guarantee write speeds of no less than 400MB/s. Content creators who stream and record their content simultaneously can rest assured that dropped frames are a thing of the past thanks to the PCIe Gen 3x2 and NVMe protocols utilized by the Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Card DIAMOND Series.
While the Diamond Series card is specifically designed with the functionality of next-generation cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, and DSLRs in mind, with its CFexpress compatibility the cards do also offer additional versatility by being backward-compatible with XQD cameras. The power of next-generation performance can still be an option with current existing devices.
Regardless of the content being captured, many of today’s creators are not looking to stay in a sterile, climate-controlled studio. From photographing snowy landscapes to videoing a biking adventure in the desert, creators of all types need storage that is durable and can protect their hard work from corruption throughout a wide variety of scenarios.
Lexar rigorously tests all of their products for durability, putting the cards through its paces with a plethora of different cameras and potential situations at the Lexar Quality Lab to ensure your content is safe no matter what circumstances you subject it to when getting that perfect shot. The Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Card DIAMOND Series is no different, as these cards are both shock- and vibration-resistant, while also able to withstand temperatures ranging from 14 to 158°F.
The Lexar Professional CFexpress Type B Card DIAMOND Series is available from B&H Photo and Adorama in three different capacities: 512GB, 256GB, and 128GB.
