Sony Launches 8GB 300X CompactFlash Card

Sony 8GB 300X CompactFlash Card

After officially releasing details of its new Alpha 700 digital SLR today, Sony also announced its own CompactFlast memory card beefed up to 8GB and 300x (45MBps) speed, just the type of CF card to use if you’re a professional photographer with a big DSLR. Or a very avid amateur, for that matter.

The 8GB Sony CF card retails at $370 while its 2GB sibling (same 300x speed) is priced at $128.

The new high speed CF cards expand Sony’s previous releases of 66x and 133x CompactFlash cards with capacities ranging from 1GB to 4GB.
