Re: 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.


Well, why not install a 3.5" Hard Drive (20 to 250GB and beyond...) into a digital camcorder itself? Sony had some DVD-camcorders. Hitachi and others too, but why not plug in a cheap hard drive? 20GB HDD is around $50.

I'm curious why the engineers not doing that?
