Product Description

High-speed digital film helps your camera capture images faster For the professional shooter who needs immediate confirmation they've captured "the shot" Transfer rate of 40X=6.0MB/second Bundled with Image Rescue software version 1.1 Lifetime Limite

From the Manufacturer

Spend More Time Taking Pictures
A photo opportunity lasts only an instant. If your digital camera is busy processing the last one, you're sure to miss the next one. That's where we come in. Our high-speed digital film helps your camera capture images faster, so you spend more time taking pictures and less time waiting on your camera.

Lexar Media CompactFlash cards are individually speed rated so you know the minimum capability of the card. We use the same rating system used by the CD-ROM industry, where data transfer rate of 1X equals 150 kilobytes (KB) per second. The higher the speed rating, the faster your camera will be able to write images to the memory card.

Digital Film Designed for the Professional Photographer
For the professional shooter who needs immediate confirmation they've captured "the shot" or wants to identify accurate exposure, levels, or bracketing range--Lexar Media's patented 4X, 12X, 32X and 40X speed (1X=150KB/sec.), (4X=600KB/sec.), (12X=1.8MB/sec.), (32X=4.8MB/sec.), and (40X=6.0MB/sec.) transfer rate respectively) is critical. Ideal for fast-paced applications such as photojournalism, sports and fashion, Lexar Media's High-Speed Series and Professional Digital Film brings out the ultimate performance from your professional equipment.

Solid-state Design with Built-in USB Intelligence
Professionals know that a single image can be more valuable than all their equipment combined. To risk losing an award-winning image because of a hard disk failure or breakdown is unacceptable. Lexar Media's solid-state design provides the ultimate reliability in harsh shooting environments, mandated by professionals throughout the world. And with built-in USB functionality, Lexar Media's Card Readers can quickly transfer your large images to your computer quickly and easily--up to 25 times faster than a serial cable connection--providing you more shooting time. You also save camera battery life by eliminating inconvenient tethered downloads.

100% Camera Compatibility Guaranteed, Plus a Lifetime Limited Warranty
The Digital Film Compliance seal assures you that your Lexar Media digital film is 100% compatible with your CompactFlash digital camera. It can also be used in all other digital devices that support the CompactFlash format, such as PDA's, Video recorders, and MP3 players. All Lexar Media CompactFlash meets the CompactFlash Association's specifications and is marked with the CF+ symbol.

Standard 4X CompactFlash is backed by a 5-year limited warranty where as the 12X and 16X High-Speed Series, 32X and 40X Professional Series are backed by a lifetime limited warranty.

Works great just like my other Lexar cards.
Dennis M.
Well, considering I worked in the memory industry for over 7 years I can help clarify this perplexing question and do so unbiased as I have since changed industries.
Brent D. Payne
I've used this card in my camera, a PCMCIA adapter, the included USB adapter, and my HP Photosmart printer, and had no compatibility or other problems.

This is a high-quality product aimed at the photography professional or serious amateur. It's got the high capacity and the speed to work with high-end digital cameras, featuring 40x access (rated just like a CD-ROM, each 1x is 150K/second throughput) and WA (Write Acceleration) technology.
The card's capacity from my Canon 10D is about 200 images, taken at Large-Fine settings (3072 x 2048). That's more than ample for most users; Lexar makes a 1GB version too if that's not enough. The 10D can burst up to 9 images to its internal memory before it has to write them to the CF. When I take 9 in a row (approx. 3 seconds), my camera is busy for another couple of seconds before I can burst another 9. 9 images in 5 seconds is a pretty good rate; I'd challenge a film camera to do better.
What really makes the card top notch is what comes with it. Included in the pack is a USB reader (compatible with any USB-enabled CF card) and Lexar's ImageRestore software (this version is only compatible with Lexar media, they sell a $40 retail version that is compatible with non-Lexar cards). Make sure you copy the setup program from the CF card to your computer when you first get it. The ImageRestore program will examine the memory in the card for image formats (JPG and TIFF, I believe; I don't think it can work with raw formats) and put them on your computer's hard drive. This proved to be a day-saver when I accidentally deleted some images (*thought* I was just clearing the DPOF settings...).
If you do happen to delete some images, stop taking pictures immediately! (Deletion doesn't remove the data, it just marks the space that it occupies in the card as available--if you keep taking pictures you could be overwriting the space that still has your image data.

for those who have this card and have had issues with your Nikon cameras.
1- the problem on curruption was with the implementation of WA (write acceleration)tech in the card. this was an oops! on the part of lexar. contact lexar during their normal hours and if you don't get through they will call you back. you will return your card to them and it will be returned fast. they do a firmware upgrade and then all is well. unfortunately it has to be done there. i have had 2 cards done and the turnaround is pretty quick.
2- as to the 24hr live support. after there normal hours it is live chat support on the web. and yes it is a real person. it may take a little time to connect. sort of like being on hold.

If your camera is fast and supports high detail, you need at least the 512mb card as fast as the Lexar. I have been using this compact flash card with the Canon EOS 6.3MP Digital Rebel Camera and have had nothing but good results. Also use with the HP 7350 Photo card reader, and again, good results.
Seems like a no-brainer.

I bought this for my Canon Digital Rebel and Powershot S400 cameras, and it works great. If you're using an old slow card, and not a high-speed Lexar or Sandisk Ultra card, you can notice the difference in upgrading to a faster card! If you take photos in rapid succession, the write time is much faster, and maybe even battery life is longer since the camera spends less time writing. (Of course, the quality of your photos will remain exactly the same.)
However, the USB card reader that comes with this Lexar card is NOT compatible with other brands of flash cards! It works fine with the Lexar card, but DOES NOT WORK with other brands such as my Sandisk or Canon cards. Keep in mind that if you have a USB 2.0 port, and a USB 2.0 device, your photos will transmit from your camera to your computer MUCH faster. (And most digital cameras are still the older USB 1.1, so a card reader makes a huge difference in transfer time.)

I bought one of these cards to use in my Nikon Coolpix 5700 camera. There is room for 209 photos (2560 x 1920 pixels) in 1:4 JPEG format or 34 photos in TIFF format.
I am delighted with this card and will probably purchase another one. No regrets from this satisfied customer.

I've been using my 512 meg 40X Lexar card in my Canon Digital Rebel for some time now. I have found the speed of this card is much faster in both saving and downloading images compared to a standard SanDisk card. Speed is comparable to the SanDisk UltraII card which is very similar to the Lexar 40X. The included USB cable is only for Lexar cards, but it's a really nice, compact unit. Be careful to download the Image Rescue software from the card before you erase the card (the software is on the flash card).
When taking burst mode shots (2.5 fps) the save time is easily twice as fast as a standard card. As with anything, what you are taking a picture of and the settings on the camera will affect how much data is being written, and thus how fast it is perceived by the user.
Not all cameras can take full advantage of the speed, so check with Lexar or your camera maker to make sure the camera itself can write data this fast. Even if your camera can't take full advantage of the speed, it is really nice to be able to copy images to your computer so much faster than regular flash using the jump cable.
