SanDisk developed the SanDisk Memory Vault using Chronolock technology, which incorporates the key elements of advanced solid-state storage to create a proprietary memory management solution for storing digital photos.

The SanDisk Memory Vault comes in 8GB and 16GB capacities with manufacturer’s suggested retail prices of US$49.99 and $89.99.
With the 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I Card: SanDisk doubled the performance and capacity of its professional-grade imaging lineup to create a new SD card based on the latest SD 3.0 specification’s Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus architecture.
