Looks like the speed is up to par..but the price isn't. No wonder Jim is so "pro" CF.
MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SanDisk® Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK) today launched the SanDisk Express™ line of high-performance flash memory products, based on the ExpressCard™ technology standard. SanDisk Express products aim to deliver best-of-class solutions for professional videographers and photographers who demand speed, durability and reliability.
The first product in the SanDisk Express line is the SanDisk ExpressCard, a flash memory card designed for a new generation of professional camcorders that record to ExpressCards rather than magnetic tape, hard discs or optical discs.
The SanDisk ExpressCard is expected to be available in November, in 8 gigabyte (GB)1 and 16 gigabyte capacities. Recording time for high-definition video capture, at 35 megabits per second, will be approximately 30 minutes on the 8GB card and 60 minutes on the 16GB card2.
Sony is the first major video equipment manufacturer to adopt ExpressCards as video recording media, with its new XDCAM EX camcorder.
The SanDisk ExpressCard is expected to be available in November in North America and Europe, in two capacities: 8GB, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $499.99 in the United States; and 16GB, with a U.S. MSRP of $899.99.
