OWC Announces Atlas Pro and Atlas Ultra Series Memory Cards and Card Reader for Photographers, Videographers, and Content Creators

OWC, a leading customer-focused creator of innovative solutions for over 30 years that have enabled individuals, businesses, creative professionals, and educators to get maximum usefulness from their technology investment, today announces the all-new OWC Atlas Memory Cards and Reader.

“OWC is the leader in workflow solutions that professional photographers and videographers depend on daily,” said Farshid Tabrizi, Sr. VP of Flash Memory & Media Development. “I am thrilled to release our new Atlas Pro and Atlas Ultra memory cards that provide flexibility and choice for photographers and videographers based on their camera and how they use it.”

Performance and reliability have been OWC’s priorities as a leading developer of flash storage for over a decade. Our Atlas memory cards line-up is developed and tested under the most aggressive settings each card type is designed to handle. You can trust Atlas memory cards with your irreplaceable content while delivering the performance and reliability you expect. Go from ingest to edit with the portable bus-powered Atlas FXR CFexpress card reader with built-in support for both Thunderbolt and USB, SD and CFexpress card reader equipped with OWC docks, and OWC storage solutions. No matter your need, Atlas is one stage of an empowering OWC ecosystem that will rocket you onward and upward from Capture to Completion™.

“It’s super important to have equipment that doesn’t limit me in any way,” said Jake Chamseddine, Tour Photographer. “From cameras to lenses, all the way down to the memory cards I use, having the peace of mind of knowing my cards are not only going to keep up with me while I’m shooting, but also safely transfer images to and from my camera, is the reason I love OWC’s Atlas memory cards so much. Couldn’t recommend a card more.”

    • Currently we are focused on full sized SD and CFexpress Type B form factors. Depending on demand and feedback from our customers, we will consider offering such products in the future!

  • Do the OWC cards require softraid, or can they work without softraid????
    Thank you. Gloria Messer

    • My guess is that they cards (Full Sized SD & CFexpress -B) should not need SoftRAID and should work fine with the regular Apple formatting (APFS – I would guess).

      SoftRAID is great – though I have not used it in ages. Maybe December 2023, if the next year is kind.
