March 1, 2006: SanDisk Corporation has released several new line-ups of memory cards that offer more memory capacity and increased speed for digital photographers.
SanDisk has also extended its Ultra II line-up with the addition of a 4GB Memory Stick PRO Duo card plus an innovative 2GB SD Plus card that looks and functions like a typical SD card but contains a fold-out USB 2.0 connector.
Ultra II cards are primarily targeted at advanced digital photographers with high-resolution digital cameras that require fast, large-capacity digital film cards to quickly shoot many high resolution images. They offer a minimum write speed of 9MB/sec and a minimum read speed of 10MB/sec. The new 2GB SD Plus card eliminates the need for a card reader and can be plugged into any USB port to easily and quickly transfer photos or other data to a computer. Pricing and availability for these new cards has still to be confirmed, although 512 MB and 1GB versions of the SD Plus card are available now for $74.95 and $134.95 respectively.
