New 32 GB CompactFlash from SanDisk
Pro Card With Doubled Capacity and Faster Writing
The 32GB SanDisk Extreme III CF memory card will be featured at the Thomson Grass Valley booth at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam Sept. 12-16. Thomson will showcase its line of professional camcorders in conjunction with SanDisk's new 32GB card, and demonstrate the practical applications of the card's increased storage capacity and speed.
Increased Storage Capacity Proves Advantageous to Photographers The 32GB SanDisk Extreme III CF card benefits professional photographers, who often shoot strictly in RAW format. RAW images demand up to ten times as much space as regular JPG images. Photographers often use continuous shooting mode during high-action situations such as sporting events or theatrical performances, and the high resolution photos add up quickly.
All SanDisk Extreme III CF cards from 4GB to 32GB, as well as the new SanDisk Extreme III SDHCâ¢ and SanDisk Extreme III Memory Stick PRO HG DUOâ¢, recently received a 50 percent speed increase from 20MB/s to 30MB/s. Renowned for their world-class durability, SanDisk Extreme III CF cards possess the industry's widest guaranteed operating temperature, ranging from minus 13F (minus 25C) to 185F (plus 85C).

The 32GB SanDisk Extreme III CF card has a manufacturer's suggested retail price in the United States of $299.99. Worldwide availability of the card is targeted for October. www.sandisk.com
