Nikon Inc. has introduced its newest flagship COOLPIX compact camera, the COOLPIX
P6000. Featuring 13.5 megapixels, a new, built-in global positioning system (GPS)
unit, my Picturetown connectivity and the power of Nikon's exclusive EXPEED image
processing concept, the P6000 offers the creative control of a DSLR in the compact
body of a COOLPIX camera.

The P6000 knows where the "best shots" are taken, thanks to the integration
of the new GPS unit. With the added GPS function, P6000 users will be able to
record "geotags" of the location where their images are captured based
on latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates. This further heightens the photographic
experience, allowing users to pinpoint the location via maps available in Nikon
ViewNX Software, my Picturetown, Nikon's photo sharing and storage website,
or any other software or website that recognizes GPS data.



Additionally, the P6000 makes my Picturetown connectivity for uploading and sharing
photos simple and easy, thanks to added wired LAN support via a dedicated Ethernet
port built into the camera. Users can upload their images and data directly from
the P6000 with an Ethernet cable to the secure Picture Bank service on my Picturetown.



In line with other COOLPIX P-Series cameras, the P6000 includes intuitive controls
via dedicated command and mode dials, providing easy access to shooting controls
and exposure mode settings. The P6000 offers Programmed Auto [P], Shutter-priority
Auto [S], Aperture-priority Auto [A] and Manual [M] modes granting users the ability
to tap into the creativity of D-SLR functions while maintaining the simplicity
of COOLPIX functionality. Owners can utilize two user-defined settings, a shooting
menu, an efficient, tabbed menu interface, as well as customizable Function buttons
to quickly switch between camera settings.



Additional shooting innovations engineered to maximize image quality and offer
greater control over the final results include Nikon's original COOLPIX
Picture Control System and a new NRW* (RAW) support. The COOLPIX Picture Control
System features intuitive controls that enable users to adjust their images to
pre-set parameters such as Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome and apply tweaks
to image sharpening, tone compensation, brightness, overall tone and saturation.
Furthermore, images shot in the all-new NRW* (RAW) format can be opened and viewed
in Nikon ViewNX Software (available early October 2008) for increased editing
abilities.



Adding even more synergy between D-SLR cameras and compact COOLPIX cameras, the
P6000 incorporates a pop-up flash, optical viewfinder for easy composition and
the added bonus of system expansion with an optional convertor, Speedlights, and
wireless remote control. Nikon's new 0.76x Wide-angle Convertor WC-E76 offers
users the option to utilize focal lengths as wide as 21mm (35mm format equivalent).
P6000 users can also take full advantage of Nikon's Creative Lighting System with
the built-in accessory shoe that supports Nikon's i-TTL flash control, which enables
wireless control over one group of remote Speedlights including the newly announced
SB-900 Speedlight.



The P6000 features a quality finish and a front panel constructed of solid Magnesium
alloy, as well as a comfortable grip and well-placed controls for streamlined
performance. The new P6000 camera is compatible with new high-capacity SDHC cards,
and utilizes a Nikon EN-EL5 rechargeable Li-ion battery. The P6000 also comes
bundled with the COOLPIX Software Suite for editing, organizing and sharing images.



The Nikon COOLPIX P6000 will be available nationwide beginning September 2008
at a MSRP of $499.95. For more information about the P6000 and other COOLPIX cameras,

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.



Beyond their high capacities and performance levels, all SanDisk Extreme III
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



Pricing and Availability

SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 30MB/s Edition cards are expected to be available worldwide
in September. The manufacturer's suggested retail price is U.S. $64.99
for the 4GB card, US $109.99 for the 8GB card, and U.S. $179.99 for the 16GB
card.
