Most of the world has moved on to svelte SD storage, but many photog pros still swear by the speed and durability of Compact Flash. If you’re one of them, smile: Lexar just dropped a 256GB bomb.
The cards, with a claimed minimum transfer speed of 60MB/s, will probably be very expensive: the 128GB version of the Professional 400x will cost you $US470, and Lexar’s not saying anything about the 256GB’s price tag. Whatever it costs (likely a grand-ish), look for it sometime in the first half of this year. Lots and lots and lots of 1080p video. [Lexar]
