Nice to see they offer sensible memory sizes with 16 & 32 gig

I really would like to see a CF card from them. I love Transcend cards, been using them for years with 0 problems. So much so I have 4x32gb cards. Transcend is like the underdog in the fight against SanDisk

They have released new CF cards a couple of weeks ago. They now have a full line of CF 1000x cards up to 128GB cards

Yeah but I can see why it's always SD cards . The CF market is getting smaller all the time.

I've just stopped using CF in my 7D (although if I'm crushing the buffer ll the time I still have a couple of cards) . I find that a cf adapter with a SD card in is mor convienient . It's easier and faster to feed my IPad from a SD than to cable up the 7D . The only thing I notice is a slightly longer delay to get the preview up . Yes the write times are longer but most of the time it's not an issue.

I will be interested in this card. If it allows you to send just the jpegs to an iPad/iPhone/android device then ill have to have a look.

Does that work with real computers and NEF format? I don't have any use for jepgs or sending 32GB to a phone.

It might just be an architecture logistical problem, or maybe they really don't think theres a market for it.

Mind you a 32G WiFi for 100$ is a nice deal, especially if it has a decent enough range/speed to it.

If they ever do a CF version, it'll probably be more geared towards pros, maybe starting at 32G and over 130$ ish depending on the speed.
