As film and video professionals from around the world flock to Las Vegas, Nevada, and cram into the bright and busy convention halls of NAB 2023, it’s always great to see how huge this industry really is — and how much it’s continuing to grow year after year.

While NAB is always a great place to check out the newest cameras and tech innovations, it’s also one of the best places to connect with some of your favorite brands and check out their most up-to-date products and offerings.

So, today let’s highlight one of the most consistent and most reliable brands at this year’s NAB Show with this feature on Lexar and their latest array of CFexpress and SD cards, lightning-fast readers, and durable and professional SSD options.

CFexpress and SD Cards

That’s why Lexar is back with a new showcase line of CFexpress and SD cards which absolutely every film and video professional of any level should always have in their cameras at all times.

Readers are great options to bring with you on set as well as they’re far quicker than any camera-to-cloud setup, especially when you start handling your uploading and backing-up processes during production.

Here are two great options featured at NAB 2023 which are worth checking out today.

Lexar Professional CFexpress™ Type A / SD™ USB 3.2 Gen 2 Reader

  • 1 x SD Card Slot

Finally, for those looking to simply store and access your data, Lexar has one of the better SSD options currently on the market with their SL200 Portable SSD. With speeds up to four times faster than traditional external hard drives, you can really access, move or backup all of your footage and files on the go.

Having a solid portable SSD in your bag either as a backup or as your primary way to save and access your footage can be a lifesaver and another workflow hack that you won’t find with any C2C production.
