Extremely fast compact flash for your digital camera

SanDisk has made a bid to have the “fastest cards in the world” with their latest, optimistically named the Extreme IV, aimed at the hi-res digital camera crowd.

These compact flash cards certainly are fast, boasting a read/write speed of up to 40MB a second. Of course, you’ll need something like SanDisk’s Extreme FireWire 800 to achieve that kind of transfer speed. (By comparison, run of the mill FireWire 400 will only get you half that, but for less money, of course.

These cards come in varieties of 2GB, 4GB, and an astounding 8GB, with pricing running up the ladder from US$200 to US$700.
