Sony is entering the CompactFlash memory card market with 4GB CF cards as one of their introductory products later this Spring. This development seems to be spurred by Sonyâ€™s recent foray into the DSLR market with their fairly successful Alpha-100.
â€œHigh end digital camera enthusiasts, from consumers to professional photographers, have a huge and growing demand for storage capacity,â€ said Renaud Isnard from Sony Europe’s Network Media division.
The initial line-up will include CompactFlash Type I cards with 66x and 133x transfer speeds and capacities between 1GB and 4GB. The products will be branded as part of Sony’s Î±100 D-SLR camera system.
