Lexar Media has developed a new Memory Card Selector for determining the right memory card for different devices and applications.

Photographers simply visit the selector page at Memory Card Selector and choose the type of card they are considering: microSD, SD or CF. Once selected, the page displays the different memory card types available from Lexar, the devices they’re designed for, the types of shooting they can handle, their performance levels, and their available capacities.

The next step is to click on the “What Capacity Do I Need?” button in the bottom of the column of the card they need. This will take the user to the selector page that offers a number of customisable options to help determine how much image and video content the different card capacities will store, based on the megapixel count of the camera device. For example, the 256GB capacity of the Lexar Professional 1000x SDXC card (shown in the screen grab below) can store more than six hours of HD video and upwards of 14,000 photos if shooting with a 21 megapixel camera.
Users can slide the photo and video content icons back and forth along their capacity ranges based on their anticipated needs to find the card capacity that best suits them. They can also select smaller megapixel counts, as well as different card capacities. By using this tool, shooters can finally get a better idea of the cards that are best matched to the type of shooting they’ll be doing, while being matched to their camera devices’ capabilities.
