    Default free MS stick for Sony Alpha 100 purchase

    Lol I was scratching my head when i saw that the launch at MS color they are offering sony MS stick as free gifts for purchase when i rem that it uses CF cards... googled ard then fd that u can use MS stick with CF adaptor.. which begs the qn.. why do they still bother with MS stick with an adaptor? why not jus offer a CF card free since its prob cheaper to manufacture and buy anyway....

    According to a avid photographer and user here,

    his nick is week"x"...

    He can confirmed that writing raws files from the R1 is much faster on a MS then to a Sandisk Extreme III CF card.

    I have no ideal whether this restriction applies to the A100 or not.

    yeah, but the R1 has a MS slot along with its CF slot...but the A100 only has a CF slot...MS can only be used through an CF to MS adaptor...

    I remember reading that on the A100, the reverse is true. I guess the point is for those currently use a Sony compact digital camera, they don't have to let their MS Duo go to waste. And yeah, it's MS Duo to CF, not full size MS.
