Today Lexar announced that they are going to start supporting and producing XQD memory cards. Lexar joins Sony as only the second company to offer support for the XQD specification. The only camera that currently supports the new standard of memory card is the Nikon D4.
According to Pop Photo via PDMA, “There’s no word on speed, capacity, or price — but so far the cards have been anything but inexpensive. Hopefully, with more manufacturers on board, and some more cameras able to use the cards, prices will soon fall.”
Lexar XQD cards are expected to be released in the third quarter of 2012. Full press release can be found on their website here.
