    IMO, the best water resistant case for any memory card = any ordinary memory card case + ziplock bag + rubberband. Cheap, works better than anything & easily obtainable.

    Sandisk is the safest CF card around i had try other brand but a number of my RAW pics are corrupted when i wanna view from the cam;s LCD or my Laptop, i either throw away or use as a backup CF card now, even how cheap the price is.
    trusted, chop, confirm must use Sandisk
