Anticipating the Nikon D90â€™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 D90â€™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 industryâ€™s first DSLR camera to support their Extreme III 30MB/s Edition SDHC cards at increased performance.
