Lexar will release next week its new high-speed Professional UDMA Dual-Slot USB Reader, designed for professional photographers and advanced photo enthusiasts.
It features an integrated cover for the card slots, so you donâ€™t get dirt or dust in them as you go from one shoot to the next. You press a button on the side and up comes the middle (reader) part of the gadget, ready for use. Press it down and it closes. Neat.
Its dual slots can read all variants of the CompactFlash and SecureDigital formats, including the high-speed, high-capacity CF and SD cards. It connects to your PC via the included USB cable.
The Lexar Professional UDMA Dual-Slot USB reader will hit the market on November 15 with a price of $45.
