According to SanDisk, its new line of cards called the SanDisk Extreme III had set a speed record of 30MB/s. The SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards were specifically made for high-speed cameras like the new Nikon D90, which allows the camera to safely capture images with a speed of up to 4.5 frames per second.
Speaking of the Nikon D90, it’s the first DSLR camera to support the cards in question. The SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards will be available by September in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities. Aside from being able to store images captured at high speed safely, the cards allow users to transfer files a lot faster with the 30MB/s speed. All the new cards are tolerant of extreme temperatures like other SanDisk cards and also carry a lifetime warranty. Expect to pony up a bit of your cash for the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards which are expected to sell for US$64.99 (4GB), $109.99 (8GB), and $179.99 (16GB).Tags: Extreme III, memory, Memory Cards, Sandisk, SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards, SDHC cards
