Does anyone have an idea when those 128 GB CF cxards will be available? They sound like the answer to a couple of different problems - extensive video, storage for large volumes of still shots when traveling, possibly even archival storage of images (more reliable than spinning HDs, less expensive than SSDs??)


I'd be sure to back it up. I have had a CF Card fail and kill two DSLR's before we realized what the problem was. You can't recover images if the card destroys the equipment when it is inserted and powered up.

Other than that, 1 large card is a good idea. Juggleing several smaller cards is a book keeping nightmare, and many photographers have in advertently formatted the wrong card and lost valuable images.
