Seagate has today issued a press release stating that it is about to begin shipping the 5 GB CF Type II HDD which was announced in June last year. The CF card will be available in 2.5 GB and 5 GB capacities and will probably offer the best $/MB of any large CF card. However with the price of flash memory is coming down all the time and many professional photographers perferring the relatively safety of flash it's difficult to see this becoming a huge seller in the digital photography market (it will probably do better where it's already being used; in MP3 players).
