Not sure I like the idea of any moving spinning device, I've had the HD in my laptop freeze up. :evil:

But the price of the new microdrives is atractive and quite a lot less that the 4gb(never seen one) compact flashes. The stores here want 825$cdn for a 2gb lexar card.

The 4GB card is available now at many photo specialty stores at an expected price of $1,499.
... a lot of $ room for maneuvering still, ie the price of a 300D(and lens) plus a 4G microdrive!

bigger is better, right? :shock:

just remember the size is relative to the image you have created.

a mamiya 645 with a kodak or other digital back produces a substantially larger file.
