Phase One and SanDisk Corporation are helping photographers to realize the benefits
of shooting in RAW. All SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards now include a full
and free edition of Phase One's Capture One LE RAW Workflow software. Capture
One LE normally retails at $99.

The bundle of the two products will enable photographers that shoot in JPEG to
easily join their professional peers in working in RAW. Extreme III users who
already shoot RAW images can now process their images in the industry leading
Capture One at no additional charge.

Purchase of Extreme III CompactFlash cards also offers upgrades from Capture One
LE to Capture One PRO at a 15 per cent discount. Upgrades can be purchased through
Phase One's on-line store at

The RAW file format has transformed digital photography. A RAW file contains the
original, unprocessed data from a camera's image sensor. Unlike shooting in JPEG,
where camera settings are recorded and fixed at the time of capture, shooting
in RAW enables photographers to make post capture changes to the many exposure
settings including the linearity, matrix processing, white point, color balance,
sharpening, contrast, brightness, color space and saturation.

The Capture One LE license bundled with Extreme III cards works for both Windows
and Mac operating systems and includes 2 computer activations and one free LE
to LE update.

This is the second bundling collaboration between Phase One and SanDisk. All of
Phase One's P-series digital camera backs, including the P 45, P 30 and P 21 products,
are bundled with the award winning SanDisk Extreme III Compact Flash storage cards
and accommodating USB readers.

Customers can find more detailed information on how to download, install and activate
the Capture One LE license by referring to the coupon enclosed in the SanDisk
Extreme III packaging or at

SanDisk Corporation has introduced the 12- and 16-gigabyte (GB) SanDisk Extreme
III CompactFlash cards to its Extreme III performance line, making these the
highest capacity cards in the world. The new high-performance, large-capacity
cards are ideal for professional photographers who shoot RAW or high-resolution
JPG files and need the performance, reliability and capacity to capture these
large files.

The new cards will have minimum write and read speeds of 20 megabytes per second
(MB/sec.) and will ship to photo retailers by the end of the year. While the
speed of the card is important for in-camera performance, card-to-computer transfer
rates are becoming an increasingly important workflow consideration. The time
it takes to transfer images to a computer can be a bigger bottleneck now that
card capacities have expanded into the multi-gigabyte range. The SanDisk Extreme
USB 2.0 reader is designed to transfer images as quickly as possible.

SanDisk Extreme III cards use SanDisk-developed ESP (Enhanced Super-Parallel
Processing) technology that combines advanced NAND flash memory chips and controller
designs, 32-bit RISC processing and leading edge algorithms for an architecture
that streamlines every aspect of read and write data transfer operations. In
addition, SanDisk works closely with major camera manufacturers to ensure speed
and compatibility. The ESP architecture effectively removes the card as the
bottleneck in data storage applications.

SanDisk Extreme III cards have the industry's widest guaranteed operating
temperature range from a minus 13F (minus 25C) to a 185F (plus 85C). The cards
also include RescuePRO software that allows photographers to easily recover
accidentally deleted images, lost digital images or data.

Pricing and Availability

SanDisk Extreme III cards are available in CompactFlash, Memory Stick PRO Duo
and SD card formats. Suggested retail prices for the two new capacities are:

Capacities US$

SanDisk Extreme III 12GB $779.99

16GB $1,049.99

SanDisk Extreme USB 2.0 Reader $24.99

SanDisk Extreme III cards carry a 10-year limited warranty in Europe, the Middle
East and Africa but will have a lifetime limited warranty in the rest of the
world. Photographers who purchase the cards also will have access to a dedicated
toll-free number for technical support questions. The RescuePRO image recovery
software on the cards is compatible with both Windows and Mac and requires no
driver download or special card reader.
