Camera Memory Cards
SanDisk has been developing new flash memory technologies since the company was founded in 1988 and is currently the world's leading supplier of flash memory cards. A large segment of SanDisk's consumer base is made up of digital camera users who store their images on writable, removable flash media devices.
For standard compact digital cameras of the point-and shoot variety, SanDisk offers a variety of Secure Digital (SD) cards. SD cards were developed together by SanDisk, Matsushita and Toshiba in 1999 and based on the older MultiMediaCard, or MMC, format. SanDisk's current product line of SD cards includes standard SD, SDHC (high-capacity) and SDXC (extended-capacity) cards in a range of sizes and speeds. Specific SD card types include:
Ultra SDHC cards
Ultra SDHC cards provide increased performance and writing speeds. The original SanDisk Ultra SDHC memory card has transfer speeds of up to 15MB per second.
Extreme SDHC cards
SanDisk's Extreme cards offer even faster speeds of up to 30MB per second.
SanDisk also produces CompactFlash (CF) cards, the wider memory card commonly used for digital SLR cameras. CF cards from SanDisk include:
Ultra I and Ultra II CF cards
Extreme I, Extreme II, Extreme III and Extreme IV CF cards
Extreme Pro CF cards
Other camera-related memory devices include:
Memory Stick PRO Duo
The Memory Stick PRO Duo was developed for users of Sony cameras and devices.
