Sony to enter CompactFlash memory market


Sony has announced it is entering the CompactFlash market, with a range of storage products for digital SLR camera set to hit the market with capacities up to 4GB.

“High end digital camera enthusiasts, from consumers to professional photographers, have a huge and growing demand for storage capacity,” said Renaud Isnard from Sony Europe’s Network Media division. “With the addition of CompactFlash cards to its product range Sony widens the choice for users of D-SLR cameras, such as the new Sony a100 model, that are looking for fast and reliable recording media from a leading brand.”

The first Sony CompactFlash memory cards will be available later this Spring. The initial line-up will include CompactFlash Type I cards with 66x and 133x transfer speeds and capacities between 1GB and 4GB. The products will be branded as part of Sony’s a100 D-SLR camera system.
