Size Does Matter!!

Digital imagery has been evolving over the last decade with an increasing number of megapixels in cameras, and now these cameras shoot video. In HD!! My first digital camera was a little 3.1 megapixel number made by Canon. So as I have kept up with the times, and purchased cameras with higher and higher numbers of megapixels I have wondered how my storage media can keep up with the new demands of the high megapixel cameras.

Silicon power to the rescue!! They have created a 128 GB compact flash card. One Hundred and Twenty Eight Giga Bytes?!! In a compact flash card? Are you freaking kidding me?! When I first saw this I thought it was a misprint. I thought it was one of those old 128 mb little weenie compact flash cards. But on closer inspection I saw it to be true. Wow. That's a lot of pixels. A plethora of 1's and 0's aligned perfectly in the shape of my beautifully crafted images.

So now, that the people who make the media storage have upped the ante, how do the people that make the camera/video equipment respond...
