Compact Flash memory had been out for quite some time now, while new digital camera are moving to use more efficient momory, why are Digital SLR still stuck to Compact flash? Take Olympus C750 for example, this camera is using xD memory and the recording time is much much faster compare to the old Compact Flash, even Compact Flash Type II.
Another problem with Compact Flash memory cards is that the chip exposure area is much larger than other memory, both SD and xD memory have smaller exposer area. CF exposure area are more vulnerable to dust and humidity, and have to be kept in Dry Cabinet, while other memory card are less troublesome.
Can anyone tell me why?
