SanDisk Introduces the First 4GB Ultra II SDHC Card

SanDisk introduced a 4-gigabyte SanDisk Ultra II SD High Capacity (SDHC) card to meet the growing demand for higher capacity storage.

The new cards can store more than 2, 000 high-resolution pictures or up to 8 hours of MPEG 4 video(2). The announcement was made at the Photokina trade show where SanDisk is demonstrating products in Hall 6, Stand D78/E79.

The SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card features write speeds of 9 megabytes (MB) per second and read speeds of 10MB/sec.(3) The cards are targeted at digital photography enthusiasts with 5 mega-pixel or higher resolution digital cameras or videographers with camcorders that require significantly faster flash storage cards.

The SanDisk MicroMate(TM) USB 2.0 reader, which normally retails for $19.99, will be bundled with the 4GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card at no extra charge. SDHC cards require an SDHC-compatible reader to transfer images from card to computer, and the MicroMate readers work with both SDHC and SD cards.

Anna Enerio, retail product marketing manager at SanDisk said, "The 4GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card and MicroMate reader bundle offers high capacity, proven performance and versatility at an exceptional value. We are confident that consumers will find this to be an ideal combination for storage-intensive applications such as digital cameras and video recording."

The 4GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card adheres to the SD 2.00 specification, a completely new design that is required for cards and cameras to support capacities from 4GB to 32GB. The specification was developed by the SD Association, an industry standards board, which also defined three speed classes for speed and performance capabilities. These cards adhere to the SD Speed Class Rating specification which defines a minimum sustained transfer speed for SDHC cards.

Though standard SD and SDHC cards look identical in size and shape, only SDHC-compatible cameras and devices will be able to accept the new SDHC cards. SanDisk differentiates its new cards with the new SDHC logo on the card and retail package.
