The 8GB SanDisk Ultra II CompactFlash card satisfies the need of those using
high-megapixel digital SLRs, those producing large files with every shot. Ultra
II cards offer a minimum sustained write speed of 9MB/sec and a read speed of
10MB/sec. SanDisk also produces their Extreme III CompactFlash lineup, which
has about double the read/write speed, but because the Extreme III uses a different
type of NAND flash memory the maximum capacity of that lineup is 4GB. In tests
with a variety of digital SLRs the Ultra II performed flawlessly, and it sure
was handy having that amount of memory on trips where lots of images were made
during the day's shoot. For Raw images with an 8MP camera we could get
almost 600 images on a card. Retail price for the 8GB card is $999.99, about
what a 1GB CompactFlash card cost three years ago.

photography. The V550 and V530 cameras are equipped with 5-megapixel (MP) resolution
sensors and the packages include the KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Frame Dock 2 -- which

and photo `slideshows' on the cameras' high-resolution LCD screens.
The V Model V550 has a SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH C-VARIOGON 3X optical zoom lens and

takes advantage of proprietary color technologies developed by Kodak to help users
get prints from inkjet printers. Version 5.0 -- available as a free download from
www.kodak.com beginning this summer -- will feature new video editing tools that
allow users to quickly and simply trim, splice, rotate and add music to videos.
