SanDisk unveils 32GB, 30MB/sec CF card

SanDisk Extreme III CF 32G

SanDisk today upped the threshold for its Extreme III CompactFlash cards with a new 32GB card that meets its expectations. The new storage doubles the previous storage limit but still promises at least 30MB per second in read and write speeds. The combination suits the two to professional photographers and HD video capture; most still cameras can shoot in full-quality RAW without running out of buffer space or bogging down in transfers, while HD videographers can record in full 1080p while still having enough room for 80 minutes of footage on a single card.

The card is also temperature-resistant and survives conditions between -13F and 185F. SanDisk is pricing the 32GB card at $300 for its October release and doesn't mention any immediate plans to discount other cards, although the release lists 4GB cards ($70) as the minimum and hints at the discontinuation of the entry 2GB model. Prices for smaller cards continue to top out at 16GB for $240.
