8GB on one single CompactFlash card? And to think my first CF card only had a measly 64MB of capacity… ain't science great!
One thing I'm interested in especially with this card is not only has the capacity been increased, but the read and write speeds have also been drastically improved, a critical and much needed update especially for those who have very high mexapixel cameras! Every write second counts, especially when you're trying to capture the perfect shot. From PhotoKina:
