SanDisk Extreme III 16GB

Professional photographers quickly find the limitations of flash memory. Cards that would normally store hundreds of photos in JPEG format may only store a few dozen in the uncompressed RAW formats used by most higher-end SLR cameras, making only the largest cards useful for wedding photographers and others who need uninterrupted shooting. SanDisk knows this and today introduced one of the largest flash capacities to date: its new 16GB Extreme III CompactFlash card stores more than virtually any other card in the industry, according to the company. Also, the new 16GB model is capable of a minimum 20MB per second in reading or writing data, allowing them to be used for relatively fast recording such as burst photography and video. SanDisk is shipping the new high-capacity card in December for $1050 alongside a lesser 12GB version, which will retail for $780. An improved CompactFlash card reader optimized for the Extreme III will be released in November for $25.
