CompactFlash 5.0: Speed, Speed and Oh Yeah, 144 Petabytes of Storage

There's something I love about CompactFlash cards—speed, and toughness—versus SD. The CompactFlash 5.0 spec takes them to a new level: 144 petabytes of possible storage, and exponentially faster transfer speeds (from 128KB per transfer unit to 32MB).


I have to say, I can't wait to get one of these inside a 1080p video-shooting DSLR. And jeez, the CF Association's website is so damn 1998. [CompactFlash Association via DP Review]
