Those who find the 8GB card's $690 price-tag too steep can consider other sizes, including 512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB CompactFlash cards.
Kingston says the 8GB card enhances the performance of power-hungry imaging applications used by both advanced amateur and professional photographers and that when used in conjunction with matching high performance digital devices it provides ultra-fast transfer times with read speeds up to 8MB/sec. and write speeds up to 6.75MB/sec.
"The new 8GB CF Elite Pro card will allow photographers to capture more images on a single card and better manage their workflow," said Kingston's Marites Bairstow.
It comes with a lifetime warranty and full-time technical support.
