The perfect card for a 100mp camera.

Aside for applications that require a CF card be installed and never removed, I cant see the logic other than to say "we made it first" - kind of like spending billions of dollars to kick around a few rocks on the moon. I can't see anyone actually buying one, however, except as a status symbol for the I'm-An-Idiot-Billionairre Club. I wouldnt want that much data on a single chip anyway, unless I was taking 100-meg pics.

professional out there who could cast a bit of light on this dark
subject(at least for us)

Very curious to know.

this CF card at the staggering price of $14,900.

I assume that potential users (presumably only professionals) must
have a need to take several hundred RAW photos without changing
cards but I'm struggling to come up with examples of where this
type of requirement would exist?
