From http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/new...s-8gb-sdhc-card, and of course all our Kaisers are SDHC compatible :-)MEMORY FIRM Sandisk has launched an eight-gigabyte SDHC flash memory card which gives digital camera users the capacity to store over 4,000 high-resolution pictures.

The Extreme III card, which can also hold up to 16 hours of MPEG 4 video2, has a read/write speed of 20 megabytes per second allowing for much faster downloads to a PC.

For video applications, the card has a speed rating of Class 6, the highest available SDA speed class – which translates into a minimum continuous data transfer rate of 6MB/second3.

Devices must be SDHC compatible in order to work with the new card.

The card, which is expected to retail at $180, will be shipped to US retailers within the coming month and comes bundled with a SanDisk MicroMat USB 2.0 card reader. It will also be available in Europe at a later stage.

Nice, though at the launch price you could get two 6Gb cards and still have change ;) Hopefully they will come down in price as quickly as previous flash cards have!

For those of us in the States, you can preorder from http://www.elite-electronix.com for $119.95. They're expecting to get the first shipment sometime during the last week of October.

Good luck with elite electronix, I ordered a 4 Gb card on Aug 31 when I ordered my Kaiser and I just got the card finally 2 days ago. I wouldn't buy anything from that company again.

I guess it's better to get two 6GB cards but who wants to carry something extra around? Thanks for the heads up with Elite. I bought my TyTN II from them and got really good customer service. Might have to splurge..
