Lexar Professional 2000x 300MB/s SD Cards

If you are a serious photographer, you'll probably know the importance of good memory cards for your camera. Whether your camera is a DSLR, Mirror-less, or a Point-and-shoot, your images gets stored in the memory card, and if the card's not up to the standard, you're going to miss a lot. A non-capable memory card may mean a missed once-in-a-lifetime shot.

When it comes to High-end SD cards for digital cameras, Lexar is considered one of the top. Although expensive, they have good build quality giving durability, and more importantly, unparalleled higher speed. The Lexar Professional 2000x is one of the fastest SD cards in the market currently, giving a 300MB/s speed.

The package includes a high-speed SD UHS-II reader which give the full speed of the card, which is a nice touch  since it's quite hard to find quality USB 3 compatible card readers.

I've been using Lexar SD cards with my DSLR camera for years (although, I've been using the Lexar 1000x 150MB/s cards mostly). And I can say that the speed they give is  unparalleled. They really shine at Wildlife and Sport photography, where speed is a must. I do a lot of wildlife photography, specially bird photography. And I have practically experienced that a slight delay where your camera is trying to write an image to the card could mean missing of a once-in-a-lifetime shot. I assume it would be the same with sports photography as well. Having a high speed Lexar card avoided a lot of otherwise missed opportunities.

Apart from the speed, the other thing Lexar cards has given me is reliability. I have worked with them on sub-freezing temperatures - at -20C during a snowstorm at Boston, MA - to high-humid and scorching hot environments - northwest Sri Lanka during the sunniest of the year. And in all of those environments, the cards worked perfectly, they delivered the speed, and preserved the shots I captured.

Yes, Lexar cards are expensive. But I think they are worth the investment.
Once you capture a once-in-a-lifetime shot, then you will feel that the investment is worth it.

Get your Lexar Professional 2000x 32GB SDHC here at Amazon.

Remember, these are the highest speed SD cards in the market right now.
