Product Description

Product Description

Lexar Medias 128MB Compact Flash card provides lots of memory for your special moments. The extra high speed 40X transfer rate insures that you won't miss a shot .

From the Manufacturer

The Digital Film Compliance seal assures you that your Lexar Media digital film is 100% compatible with your CompactFlash digital camera. Lexar Media's Professional Series CompactFlash is designed to speed up image transfer times by taking advantage of a Digital SLR camera's high-speed processor. Capable of sustained write speeds of 6mb per second, making our CompactFlash cards ideal for any photograher who demands optimal performance from the card and camera they use.

Digital cameras and media designed for speed

Write Acceleration Technology (WA) allows digital cameras and CompactFlash cards to work together perfectly to pass and store images more quickly and achieve image-write speeds never before possible.

Speed rated at 40x (6 Mbps)

Improved write performance in WA enabled cameras. Combination of camera and card firmware that reduces read/write protocol overhead for faster image storage.

Before you purchase this card, make sure that your camera supports the Write Acceleration Technology. I purchased Lexar's 40x 256MB card (with Write Acceleration) about a year ago for my Minolta DiMage 7Hi camera, and realized my camera did not support the new technology. The CF card still worked, but there was no increase in speed over other cards.

I checked Lexar's website, and it said that my camera does not support the Write Acceleration technology. The link is here: [...]

Current (as of this review) cameras supporting WA technology:
- All Kodak Professional cameras and pro camera backs, such as the DCS Pro Back 645, DCS Pro Back Plus, DCS 720x, DCS 760, DCS 760m and DCS 14n
- Nikon D1x, D1h, D-100 (Requires camera firmware upgrade by Nikon. See Nikon's web page for more details) and D2h
- Sanyo DSC-MZ3
- Sigma SD-9
- Sigma SD10
- Pentax *ist D
- Olympus E1

Lexar USB Card Reader (included):
- Works only with Lexar CF Cards. Attempted to use with SanDisk and Kingston CF Cards but did not work. Should not be a problem if you only use Lexar products. However, if you do, consider buying a separate card reader.

I bought the Lexar 1GB 40x CF card to use in my Nikon D70 digital SLR camera. Originally I had a 256MB CF card but that one would not support high-speed write so I couldn't take full advantage of Nikon's 3fps continuous mode. The Lexar 40x CF card simply works, and now I can shoot burst pics at the D70's 3fps speed without any problems.

I have always liked Lexar's flash memory products, as I've never had a single problem with the dozen of them I've owned (CF, SD, MS). Lexar's cards are also compatible with a wider range of products than Sandisk or Viking. The only other flash brand I totally trust is Panasonic, but they only make SD these days.

If you have a digital SLR the 40x speed should be enough. I don't know of any current d-SLR that really takes advantage of anything higher than 6mbps.

Verified Purchase
I had read somewhere that the Lexar Media Compact Flash HSS was optimized for the Canon S50. I have noticed that it saves files much faster to my S50 than my other brand name CF card. I have had a couple of instances of "unknown files" being saved to the card, but I'm not sure if that's a problem with the camera or the card and in any case I haven't lost any photographs.

I also use an 'el-cheapo' card reader to unload images into Photoshop Elements and it works great with the Lexar card.
