CF cardsare widely used by many manufacturers' cameras and are always available in the fastest speeds and largest capacities before other formats, and tend to be less expensive as well. xD Cards are proprietary to Fuji and Olympus, are only available in sizes of 2GB and smaller, and are more expensive and harder to find.
