SanDisk card perfect for shiny, new Nikon D90

New SanDisk Extreme III Edition 30MB/s SDHC cards.


Already saving up to get the new Nikon D90 ? You might want to add at least another $65 to your budget for SanDisk's new 30MB/s Extreme III SDHC cards.

Available worldwide in September, the cards offer a 50 percent speed boost from 20MB/s cards, and the Nikon D90 is the industry's first dSLR to take advantage of the speed.

That means that with the 30MB/s Extreme III, the D90 can record 39 6MB JPEG images at 4.5 frames per second in continuous shooting mode. Getting them off is almost as fast, too, when used with SanDisk's new ImageMate Multi-Card USB 2.0 reader/writer.

Prices for the cards are $64.99 for the 4GB card, $109.99 for the 8GB card, and U.S. $179.99 for the 16GB card.
