So, if you have a spare two-and-a-half grand to spend on a mem­ory card, Lexar will hap­pily sell you one of its new 512 GB ca­pac­ity CFast de­vices. Yes, 512

gi­ga­bytes. That’s an aw­ful lot of stor­age space, but with 4K video now well-andtruly here and 8K on the hori­zon, it’s prob­a­bly go­ing to look merely ad­e­quate in years to come. Like­wise with 100 MP still cam­eras, of which there will surely be more down the track. In fact, Lexar says that when shooting at 200 fps (i.e. for slow-mo­tion se­quences) on a high­end, pro­duc­tion-level video cam­era, it’s easy to fill up an en­tire 256 GB card in just 17 min­utes.

The new Lexar Pro­fes­sional 3500x se­ries 512 GB CFast 2.0 mem­ory card has a claimed max­i­mum read speed of up to 525 MB/sec­ond and a write speed of up to 445 MB/sec­ond. Al­though phys­i­cally sim­i­lar, CFast cards are in­com­pat­i­ble with stan­dard Com­pactFlash types, and are cur­rently used in the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, Has­sel­blad H6D 100c and quite a num­ber of pro-level video cam­eras and record­ing de­vices.

The Lexar Pro­fes­sional 3500x CFast 2.0 card line is also avail­able in 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB ca­pac­i­ties. The new 512 GB card is priced at $2550.
