SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) has says it set a new speed record of 30
megabytes per second for SD flash memory cards with the introduction of the
SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s Edition line of SDHC Cards. The new cards, expected
to be available worldwide in September in 4-gigabyte (GB), 8GB and 16GB capacities,
are designed to deliver peak performance when used with the new digital single-lens
reflex (DSLR) camera, Nikon D90.



The Nikon D90 is the industry's first DSLR camera to support SanDisk Extreme
III 30MB/s Edition SDHC cards at increased performance. Featuring a 50-percent
speed boost from previous 20MB/s cards, the new SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s Edition
SDHC card makes it possible to record 39 images in continuous shooting mode
at 4.5 frames per second with a file size of 6.0 MB JPEG L Fine per image.3
The Nikon D90 camera captures high-resolution, 12.3 megapixel still images,
and it is Nikon's first DSLR to offer movie recording capability.



With ever-increasing technology advancements in DSLR cameras, higher megapixel
growth and new video capturing capabilities, SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s SDHC
cards make it easy for consumers to capture and store more high-resolution images
and video content. When placed in SanDisk's new ImageMate Multi-Card USB
2.0 Reader/Writer, still images and video can be transferred from the new SDHC
card to a computer up to 30MB/s, greatly reducing the waiting time to offload
large files from the card to the computer.

cards are capable of functioning in extreme temperatures, from -13 to 185 degrees
Fahrenheit or -25 to 85 degrees Celsius. The cards also carry a lifetime limited
warranty. SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 30MB/s Edition cards, which have a Class
6 performance rating, are fully backwards-compatible; working in any camera,
card reader or other device that supports SDHC cards.6

for the 4GB card, US $109.99 for the 8GB card, and U.S. $179.99 for the 16GB
