(Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, is proud to showcase the extraordinary performance capabilities of its next generation 1000x CompactFlash card designed specifically to meet the rigorous demands of professional photographers and creative DSLR filmmakers. When used with today's high-end digital SLR cameras and camcorders, including the Nikon D4, the Sony Alpha 700, the Olympus E-5, and the Canon EOS C500 and EOS-1D C Cinema EOS series DSLR cameras, Transcend's 1000x CompactFlash cards are perfect for capturing extremely high-resolution image data and recording up to 4k Ultra High Definition video content.
There is growing interest from independent filmmakers in using midrange to professional-series DSLR cameras for shooting movies due to their excellent recording capabilities, compact size, straightforward operation, and affordability. These top quality digital devices usually feature a powerful image processor, which requires a high-speed memory card to optimize shooting performance.
Transcend's "Ultimate" series 1000x CompactFlash cards implement the CompactFlash revision 6.0 specification and operate in Ultra DMA (UDMA) transfer mode 7, the fastest interface speed available for CF cards. Fully compliant with the Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-20) and boasting blazing fast read/write transfer rates of up to 160MB/120MB per second, these cards are ideal for fast-action burst mode shooting and professional-quality video capture.
In addition to fast transfer rates, the 1000x CompactFlash cards are available up to an enormous 128GB, eliminating the need to pause and switch memory cards during extended video recording sessions. To assure robust, long-life durability and guaranteed performance, Transcend's 1000x CF cards are manufactured using premium quality toggle mode NAND Flash memory chips. Moreover, each card contains built-in BCH ECC (Error Correction Code) technology with read-retry for detecting and correcting errors during data transfer.
For further peace of mind, all Transcend CF cards are comprehensively tested for compatibility, speed and reliability, and backed by Transcend`s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
