Re: I think it is wonderful.

OK Sean I hear you
But as CEO of a company I'd tell my team to buy multiple 4 gig cards
and change them every few hours

Who would want to worry about 53 CF cards! Uggh! No thanks! Believe
me, even at this price there are going to be plenty of sales. Most
likely magazines and companies of various types. To some companies
the benifits of 12gigs in 1 card far outweigh the costs involved,
and that price is a drop in the bucket on what their equiptment
budgets are each year. These cards are not targeted at the common
consumer like you and I. Besides give it a couple years and the
price will be much more managable. Don't get all bent out of shape
just because you cannot afford it. There are plenty who can. We
should thank them because it is they who will drive the price down
eventually. I remember when one 3D workstation SGI computer cost
over 100,000 (and not too long ago either... like 5 years ago). Now
you can get a laptop for $3,000 with the same and even greater
capabilities thanks to NVidia and ATI etc. But that workstation was
not targeting average 3D users.... they are targeting the
movie/television ad companies that have the budget to afford these
