How fast your camera shoots is due in part to the memory card it uses. Even the cleverest mechanical artistry is not enough if it's hampered by a sluggish write speed.

For that reason pro photographers would certainly appreciate the 8GB Extreme III SDHC, a drugged-up storage card for faster transfer speeds. Though the emphasis is on speed (read/write speed of 20MBps), there're some hardware and software extras. The bundled MicroMate is a USB 2.0 reader that can turn the card into a mass storage device or a card reader while the included RescuePRO software is a data recovery tool to retrieve accidental deletions.

The 8GB SanDisk Extreme III SDHC will be available for retail on the U.S. and European markets at $180.
