If you’re a professional photographer and/or videographer working with RAW images and 4K video saved to XQD 2.0 cards, you’ll want to read about Lexar’s new reader!

Lexar’s new ‘Lexar Professional XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 Reader’ is here, designed to ‘aid professionals in quickly transferring files from XQD 2.0 cards to computers.’

As you’d expect, the reader leverages SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology to improve the workflow of photographers and videographers.

The card’s key features are as follows:

  • Provides professional-level high-speed transfer of RAW images and 4K video files
  • Accelerates workflow, leveraging SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology
  • Designed for use with XQD 2.0 cards
  • Compact, portable design for photographers and videographers on the go

Offering a compact, portable design, Lexar naturally encourages professionals to travel with its Professional XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 Reader.

As it can easily slip into a pocket or bag, and it offers a simple plug-and-play design with a USB 3.0 connector so content can be securely transferred on the go, it is designed to deliver on your need for speed - and as you’d expect, the reader is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices at USB 2.0 speeds.

Micron Consumer Products Group Marketing Manager APAC, Mathew Luu, said: “Given the rapid growth and widespread appeal of 4K video, we realised it was essential to create a reader for XQD 2.0 cards that provided professionals with a way to transfer great video and photo content without the wait time.

“The Lexar Professional XQD 2.0 USB 3.0 Reader supercharges post-production content transfer, no matter what you’re shooting.”

You also get Lexar’s limited five-year warranty, along with Lexar’s reassurance that all its product designs ‘undergo extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs, facilities with more than 1,100 digital devices, to ensure performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability.’

So, what will it cost? Details below, please read on!
