Memory maker Kingston Technology Co., Inc. says its 4GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards are now out in the market at a retail price of $199.
SDHC is a new standard to deliver capacities beyond the present 2GB limit of todayâ€™s SD cards. SDHC cards will only be recognized by SDHC host devices; manufacturers currently offering SDHC host cameras include: Canon, Pentax, Sanyo, Casio and Nikon. Sandisk earlier released its own 4GB Ultra II SDHC card.
Kingston said it will produce more of the new SDHC Class 2 cards, while at the same time enhancing the function of its existing 15-in-1 Reader to support the growing storage demands of high performance digital still cameras, digital video cameras and other high resolution image recording devices. Its new $19 card reader is now compatible with SDHC.
