I believe SD cards will eventually make minidv obsolete. All digital cameras and video recorders will use flash cards one day. This topic has been touched on several times already here and there. Once 30 to 60 gig flash cards are commercially available for say around $35, they could be used in place of minidv in same format.

Right now we are up to 16 gig? but still pricy.

Fishycomics,

So you are saying that as well as an SD memory card, you wish you would put a USB flash key in as well right? Personally I don't see what is wrong with SD cards as they're really not that fragile. I can't see them bothering to do this, although you never know of course. Manufacturers are always looking for something to 'differentiate' themselves from others.

What you want to be able to do is be able to copy the contents of your current memory card onto his. Some cameras do have this ability. My old Minolta can do this, although I have never tried it for the videos. The aipteks don't have this ability at all. I haven't noticed this on my Sanyo's thought to be fair I haven't really been looking and maybe someone can prove me wrong on this (hopefully :-).

Well Car Stereos and now even DVD players are starting to come with USB flash key inputs, so you never know, your wish may come true thought I suspect it would be on the more expensive devices. I can't see Aiptek etc doing this as it would be an unnecessary feature costwise for them.
