Hitachi confirm 2 and 4 GB Microdrive

Hitachi has today confirmed their 2 and 4 GB Microdrive (Compact Flash Type II). IBM Storage Technology and Hitachi Storage merged at the beginning of the year. At that time Hitachi Glboal Storage Technologies (HGST) announced that they would have a 4 GB Microdrive by the end of the year, today they have officially confirmed that they will be producing a 2 and 4 GB Microdrive. These higher capacities are made possible using Hitachi's patented "Pixie Dust" surface layer technology. Note that the 4 GB card will only work with a digital camera which supports the FAT32 filesystem. The 4 GB card will hit the shelves this November at a price of $499 (just $0.12/MB), a third of the price of Lexar's 4 GB 40x.

Hitachi DZ-MV100 DVD-RAM camcorder

Not strictly digital photography news, but more interesting is the technology used and it's possibilities. Hitachi announced (back in June actually) the DZ-MV100 as a first of a kind DVD-RAM camcorder, features a 1.1 megapixel CCD has a 12x optical zoom lens and records in MPEG-2 format directly onto 8 cm 2.92 GB DVD-RAM discs it's also capable of 1280 x 960 stills recorded in JPEG format and has USB connectivity. Interesting technology when viewed alongside Sony's recent announcement of the MVC-CD1000 and interesting potential in a "Wallet" type device.

Hitachi announce 448MB CF Type II

Just when you thought your Microdrive was big. Hitachi Japan announce three CF Type II cards of capacity 448MB, 320MB and 256MB and a 1GB PCMCIA ATA Type II, all of these new devices use 512 or 256 Mbit flash memory and are capable of up to 2MB/second. Prices not yet announced and I'm sure they won't yet be able to get down to the low $/MB of the Microdrive but for those people with reservations about mini-harddisks this will be encouraging news.
