For those who are power hungry ..... here's the good news!
CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive - the digital photographer's choice in storage
The Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive will now offer an unheard of 8,000 MB of capacity for digital cameras in a tiny 1-inch standard CompactFlash Type II card and at a far more attractive price than flash-based cards. It will let photographers shoot huge volumes of high-resolution pictures without changing the card - this reduces set-up time and extends shoot cycles, which saves photographers valuable time and resources. Consumers will find they can take full advantage of moving video features on their cameras. Its massive 8GB capacity can reduce the need to purchase or carry additional storage cards and can deliver over 2400 high-resolution (6 megapixel) pictures, or over 6400 standard-resolution pictures (3 megapixel) on a single card. The Seagate CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive plugs into CompactFlash Type II slots on many of today's digital video and still cameras.
Heard the launch should be in Aug/Sept 2005 .... no news about the pricing. Now we can forget about those portable storage device when travelling oversea.
