SanDisk introduced flexible 4GB CF type I Card


Dennis Hissink : 2004-02-21 08:44:32
Storage capacities of Flash cards are expanding rapidly, but together with this progress a new obstacle occurs; the FAT16 and FAT32 file formats. Most of the digital cameras are not supporting the FAT32 file format so a capacity of more than 2GB was out of the question for most of the consumers. However SanDisk came with a very clever solution. The 4GB SanDisk CompactFlash card features an advanced design from SanDisk that allows it to operate in cameras that use either the FAT16 or FAT32 file formats. It is the only CompactFlash card of its capacity and compatibility level that is available in the popular Type I format and fits into any CompactFlash slot.

With an initial suggested retail price of $14.99 each-a breakthrough in the industry-the Shoot & Store cards are expected to allow people to order prints on a "cost-of-use" basis that is equal to or less than that of traditional analog film. And they won't have to worry about leaving expensive flash memory cards with retail photo finishers.
