NEW YORK, NY, July 19, 2006 – SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) today introduced the new SanDisk Extreme® IV line of CompactFlash® digital film cards for professional photographers. The line is targeted at photographers who require the highest possible performance and the largest capacities for their medium format and high-end digital single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. The SanDisk Extreme IV cards are available in capacities of up to 8-gigabytes (GB)1 and deliver minimum read and write speeds of 40 megabytes per second (MB/sec.)2 making these the fastest flash memory cards in the world.
SanDisk Press Release
These cards will be available in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB flavors. The prices are 160, 320, and 640 USD, respectively. I don't think that's a bad deal when you consider how good, fast, and spacious these cards are. They can survive "extreme environmental conditions" at temperatures ranging from -13F to 185F. It's probably safe to assume that these will outlast even the finest cameras.
