SanDisk Extreme III memory card - The SanDisk Extreme III cards, which range in capacity between 1- and 8GB are among the world's fastest working cards in many of today's leading digital single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. SanDisk Extreme III cards are targeted primarily at professional photographers who require high-speed flash memory storage cards for their high-performance digital SLRs. "Many photographers are wary of using cards that are larger than 1GB because they don't want to 'put all their eggs in one basket,' so to speak," said Jonathan Torgovnik, contract photographer for Newsweek magazine. "While that's a valid concern, I shoot RAW so using large capacity cards is a must. It also lets me concentrate on taking pictures rather than worrying about a pocket full of lower capacity cards that can easily be lost or misplaced."
SanDisk 8GB Extreme III - Reliability, Performance and Capacity - Tanya Chuang, SanDisk retail product marketing manager, said, "The SanDisk Extreme III line offers professional photographers an ideal combination of reliability, performance and capacity to match their shooting and workflow requirements. These are the highest performance cards you can get in CompactFlash, Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD card formats."
SanDisk Extreme III card - Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing - SanDisk Extreme III cards use SanDisk-developed ESP (Enhanced Super-Parallel Processing) technology that combines advanced NAND flash memory chips and controller designs, 32-bit RISC processing and leading edge algorithms for an architecture that streamlines every aspect of read and write data transfer operations. In addition, SanDisk works closely with major camera manufacturers to ensure speed and compatibility. The ESP architecture effectively removes the card as the bottleneck in data storage applications.
SanDisk Extreme III flash memory card - RescuePro software - SanDisk Extreme III cards are designed to withstand the industry's widest guaranteed operating temperature range from a freezing minus 13F (minus 25C) to a scorching 185F (plus 85C). The cards also include RescuePRO software that allows photographers to easily recover accidentally deleted images, lost digital images or data. SanDisk Extreme III cards carry a 10-year warranty in Europe, the Middle East and Africa but will have a lifetime limited warranty in the rest of the world. Photographers who purchase the cards also will have access to a dedicated toll-free number for technical support questions. The RescuePRO image recovery software on the cards is compatible with both Windows and Mac and requires no driver download or special card reader
