Lexar is one of the most widely-recognised memory card brands and the Professional 2000x SDHC/SDXC UHS-II cards are part of the company’s flagship series. Starting with a SDHC card that has a capacity of 32GB, and going all the way up to SDXC cards with capacities of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, there are options for every type of photographer although they commend a higher price than the less well-known Kingston Canvas React Plus cards.

The Professional 2000x SDHC/SDXC UHS-II cards have a video speed class of V90 and offer a maximum read speed of up to 300MB/s while the write speed tops out at 260MB/s. This makes them suitable for recording 4K and some 8K video as well as capturing high-resolution stills at fast frame rates.
