They already are (well under $100) if you shop around. ;-)
Shows I haven't done much shopping around recently. I bought 2 8gb with my D300 3 months ago for about the same amount the 16's are going for now. I can't believe how quickly these are dropping. I'd pick up a 16, but my 2 8's are more than enough...

I took my 8 out and never filled it either, the 16 shows 1.4k in the display, how cool is that. Now it will take two dual layer DVDs to take all the pictures from one card.

There is a large format sd card on the market made by pny that will hold 32GB! 4mb or 6mb write speed versions @ $249 and $299 respectively. This will change the way you think of SD cards. And by the way, I've washed my card before and took it through all kinds of hell and it performs like new.I own about 6 for myself and 2 for my wife and all work like new.

The info on the cards came from PC Photo Jul/Aug on page 19. They are on sale at amazon for $130 right now. Think I'll get one and use it inthe Nikon D90 whenI get my hands on it.

You need new generation SD cards for new generation dslr like D90. All dslrwill soon switch to new technology of D90, Canon, Samsung, Sony, etc included.

Nikon try to kill Canon 50D with D90 but very likely will effect Nikon own D300. Actully will effect all DSLR without new generation D90 technology and ability to use the new SD card. D90 plus new Sandisk will change the industry. See this: http://www.digitalcamerareview.com/d...sp?newsID=3670

I can't figure out where it does anything differently in a Nikon versus any other camera model, other than some setup integration (versus needing to set up the card on a PC first like you would with other cameras for the desired ESSID, passwords, etc.). I guess that has it's benefits (especially if you need to enter an ESSID and password for the access point you want to use if it's changing while the camera is in use).

From previous reviews I've seen of their wireless SD cards, they can be setup to automatically transfer images to the desired host when in range of a wireless access point with any camera model (but, a PC is required to set it up prior to use), and it looks like the geotagging feature is based on access point location versus anything else.

Unless they've improved with newer versions, they have very slow transfer speeds (around 200KB/Second from a review I saw), which may not be practical for a lot of photos.
