It will hold 1 hour of digital video

It is interesting that it takes exactly 12gb of space to hold 60 minutes of digital video. I suspect the target customer for this card would be some news media people with the newest pro video camcorders that will record the digital video onto a CF card (which is much small than a tape). Besides, TV news people are the only ones who can afford to pay so much for a CF card.

decided to make one, than there must be a reason. Is there a
professional out there who could cast a bit of light on this dark
subject(at least for us)

Very curious to know.

I'm interested in learning why anyone would consider purchasing
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?
