Anticipating the Nikon D90’s release next month, SanDisk is also releasing in September its Extreme III 30MB/s Edition SDHC memory card, offering speed and capacity to match the D90’s shooting speed and movie capability.

The new SDHC cards will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities with read/write speeds up to 30 megabytes per second, designed to deliver peak performance when used with the new Nikon D90 DSLR.

SanDisk says the Nikon D90 is the industry’s first DSLR camera to support their Extreme III 30MB/s Edition SDHC cards at increased performance. Featuring a 50-percent speed boost from previous 20MB/s cards, the new SanDisk Extreme III 30MB/s Edition SDHC card makes it possible to record 39 images in continuous shooting mode at 4.5 frames per second with a file size of 6.0 MB JPEG L Fine per image, according to the company. The Nikon D90 camera captures high-resolution, 12.3 megapixel still images, and it is Nikon’s first DSLR to offer movie recording capability.

SanDisk Extreme III SDHC 30MB/s Edition cards are priced at $65 for the 4GB version, $110 for the 8GB card and $180 for the 16GB card.
