C F Question,
My son in law has a Nikon D 2 X,, it use's CF cards,, He showed me his CF cards,, one was different, he said it was like a little hard drive,, did those not pan out ??
I also have a D2X and had several of the IBM Micro-drives. They ended up being somewhat fragile, subject to movement and vibration. Every one I had suffered a head crash and had to be disposed of. In their day they were actually faster than the flash memory, and they were available as a 4G when a 512M was the biggest CF available. Their mechanics also sucked the life out of camera batteries faster than you could swap them for freshly charged! I believe I still have one around here somewhere, but strictly as a memento -- I would not even consider using one today...
