on Tuesday launched two new products on higher demand for higher capacity storage.

The company introduced a four-gigabyte SanDisk Ultra II SD High Capacity card. The new card can store more than 2,000 high-resolution pictures or up to eight hours of MPEG 4 video. The new Ultra II SDHC card has writing speeds of nine MB/sec and reading speeds of 10 MB/sec. The cards are targeted at digital photography enthusiasts with 5 mega-pixel or higher resolution digital cameras or video graphers with camcorders that require significantly faster flash storage cards.

The SanDisk MicroMate USB 2.0 reader, which normally retails for $19.99, will be bundled with this new product at no extra charge, the company said.

Separately, the company said that it introduced the 12- and 16 GB SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards to its Extreme III performance line.

The new SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash cards will have minimum write and read speeds of 20 MB/sec and will ship to photo retailers by the end of the year.

The new high-performance, large-capacity cards are ideal for professional photographers who shoot RAW or high-resolution JPG files and need the performance, reliability and capacity to capture these large files, the company added.
