Hi all,

When will Pentax update your firmware for one of these.

I want my DL to capture 720,000 piccys on one card..

Never need another card again.

For Don... 6mb per frame, 60 fps.. over three hours of video off one SD card..

Cheers

Liam

ARGH!!!

I was just looking for a 4gig SDHC card, the proprosed new cards seem WAY too big!

It's bad enough when a hard drive fails but loosing 2TB on an SD card sized device would be devastating!

I use a Dane Elec 16 Gig SDHC card, which works well in my K20D.
This gives 814 shots!(RAW+)
Don't worry be happy

I think the 2Tb cards would be far too expensive to consider for general use in DSLRs when they first come out. Wait till they come down to sub 20 and then we'll all have a field day trying to find those images buried away in never ending streams of files that we've been too lazy to properly manage.

Would be pretty good for backing up hard drives. Or would they become the new 'hard drive'?

Would we all have our own personal hard drive to slot into whichever PC we would be using at the time? Food for thought!!

All this actually means is that the standard supports up to 2TB, the technology to get that much flash memory onto an SD card is a few years off IMO.

They have just been taken a bit by surprise at how quickly technology has caught up with the SDHC standard and are trying to give it a bit more headroom this time.
you don't have to be mad to post here



but it does help

You can do that already with Puppy Linux (and many more Linux OSs I'm sure). Load PL onto a DVD RW, and away you go. As long as the machines you use can burn to DVD, you have a perfectly portable, if smallish PC. No need for a HD on the host machine either.



You'd have a problem with XP or Vista though, as the hardware needs to be validated on boot. Can't see Bill letting you use one copy of an OS anywhere you want.. probably ahve to pay $50 licence for each machine you hook up to.

But your point about backing up, is a very good one. People don't back up often enough usually 'cos it's a pain changing CDs or having to buy external HDs. Rotate 3 or 4 of these and away you go.. about as portable as you can get.

Cheers

I've just found a 64Mb card I miss placed last month, no worries.

Imagine that with a 2Tb card that has you OS and files on!

The SD Card association has place the limit off SDHC to 32gb but theoreticly it can go up too 2TB as well. If pentax havent set a limit on his cameras that support SDHC it can go over the 32GB as well.
