Ability To Take Thousands Of High-Resolution Images Lets Photographers Concentrate On Their Subject

With increasing sales of high-resolution digital cameras, video camcorders and other electronics devices that require more memory capacity and speed, SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) today announced the 4-gigabyte (GB)1 SanDisk Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo™ card. The addition of this card to its high-speed SanDisk Ultra II line of flash memory cards represents a doubling of its highest capacity card in this card format. The announcement was made at the Photo Marketing Association trade show where SanDisk is demonstrating products in booth #2741.

The Ultra II cards are primarily targeted to advanced digital photographers with high-resolution digital cameras that require fast, large-capacity digital film cards to quickly shoot many high resolution images. Each SanDisk Ultra II card features a minimum write speed of 9 megabytes per second (MB/sec.) and a minimum read speed of 10MB/sec.2 These fast write speeds are designed to take advantage of advanced digital camera features such as rapid fire, continuous-shooting modes or to capture digital video clips.

“Sony and other manufacturers continue to introduce cameras and other consumer electronics products that can leverage the fast SanDisk Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo cards,” said Tanya Chuang, senior retail product marketing manager at SanDisk. “Memory Stick PRO Duo continues to be a key format among flash memory cards and we continue to find an eager market for these faster and higher-capacity cards.”
