Lexar Gives Us a Look Behind the Scenes
One of the most fascinating things about the cards we use every day in our cameras isn't how they work, but how they're made in the first place.
Lexar was good enough to post a YouTube video giving us a look inside of a US Based production facility and it's absolutely fascinating. The process is far more high-tech than you might expect, and relies on a huge number of automated machines working 24/7.
Interestingly, the final product is still hand checked by a human. Machines are relied upon for most of the process, but in the end it's people that give it the final okay.
Lexar's beautifully shot video was created on a Canon 5D Mark II camera using 32GB Lexar Professional CF cards for storage.
You can watch the video on YouTube.
