Digital Film for Digital Cameras

Just like 35mm cameras need traditional "roll film", today's digital cameras need "digital film", also referred to as "digital media", to capture and store pictures. Lexar Media designs digital film that brings out the ultimate performance from any digital camera. Digital media is available in five formats including CompactFlash, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, MultiMedia Cards, and SD cards.

USB-Enabled Compact Flash
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.

SmartMedia
Capture High-quality Digital Photos
SmartMedia digital film allows you to record your high-resolution digital images in a safe, convenient, durable, easy-to-use format. It is available in an array of capacities to complement your shooting requirements. SmartMedia works in various devices, including your MP3 audio recorder. Fast-and-easy downloads via our SmartMedia Reader (reads SmartMedia only) or Universal Reader (reads SmartMedia, CompactFlash, and PC cards) allows you to transfer files to your PC or Macintosh, sparing your camera's battery life.

Memory Stick
Capture More High-quality Digital Photos
As one of the newest digital-film form factors for digital cameras today, Memory Stick digital film allows you to record your high-resolution digital images in a safe, convenient, durable, easy-to-use format. Lexar Media’s Memory Stick comes in various storage capacities: 16, 32, and 64 and 128MB to complement your shooting requirements. It works in an array of different applications, including your Sony MP3 audio recorder, video cameras, and computers with a Memory Stick slot.

MultiMedia Cards
Reliability for Your Most Essential Pictures, Music and Data
Lexar Media MultiMedia cards are the small, convenient, and durable solution for data storage use for a variety of digital applications. These small yet powerful media cards are designed to interface with an array of digital devices designed to support the MultiMedia and SD card format – including PDAs, cellular phones, digital video recorders, and digital cameras. Lexar Media’s MultiMedia cards come in a range of capacities to suit your storage needs.

Lexar Media MultiMedia cards are extremely versatile as they are able to operate not only in devices that have a MultiMedia card slot, but devices that are designed for SD format cards as well. The normal operation of the device will not be compromised, and you are ensured broader options for use of your MultiMedia card.
