Consumers are way beyond CF already, SDXC is where it’s at… expect this standard to take off in full and mini sized cards in 2013, not a reversion to CF again!

Really, so because you think it is an aging media you think it is going to go away. High end cameras STILL use them for a good reason. So please… accept they will still be around for a while and not use them if you don’t. But don’t complain because a company is still producing them when it does not affect you in the slightest.

CF’s are nice things for small server operating systems as well. Far better than harddisks.

Just as a side note, in addition to cameras the Disneyland Resort [I]as well as the other parks worldwide[/I] are very dependent on CF media for audio reproduction. There are about 6 different hardware formats throughout the attractions and entertainment venues that store audio data on CF cards. It’s part of my job to load all that media and it’s been quite a challenge to keep our hardware current with the ever changing CF design protocols. When SanDisk switched over from the PIO to the UDMA format, suddenly our hardware had to compensate for their redesign. Considering the immense quantity of our audio reproducers dependant on CF flash, we’re kinda hoping they don’t go away just yet! :slight_smile:
