Well if you can afford that many eggs. :lol:

I think this is more for video work/archiving and i know Lexar used to do free recovery on Pro cards. Not sure if they still do but this but at one time it was the big selling point of this line of cards. Plus if you would trust your work to SSD there is no reason not to trust it to CF as they one in the same basically.

I bought a couple 8GB Lexar cards last week when they had a sale. you get a little card inside with an access code to download their Image Rescue 4 software.

I think it'd be fun to get your hands on a big CF card like one of these along with a 2.5" HDD adapter... http://www.addonics.co​m/products/ad44midecf.​php (external link) .... it'd be a rather easy way to have multiple OS's on one machine....

Yes but they also did free recovery on the Pro line it was what set the platinum and pro apart along with a dedicated hotline.

Memory Card Tip #8: If you are unsuccessful at recovering images on a corrupted Lexar memory card, you can actually send the card to Lexar at NO COST and they will have a technician perform professional data recovery on the card, put the images on a DVD, and mail you a new card and the images. Now THAT is impressive service! As far as I know, Sandisk doesn’t offer this level of customer support. I checked their website for information and couldn’t find anything comparable. Does anyone knowledge about this?

People said the same things about a 1GB card 10 years ago. They were crazy expensive, and who would ever put that many pictures on one card?!? :)

Realy this definitely IS way overkill for a DSLR. But some of the medium format cameras have giant files. The Leaf Aptus II 12 makes 480MB TIFF files and the Hasselblad h4d-200 can make a single 1.2GB image from a special mode that uses 4 stacked shots.

Oh man, I just did the math. One of these would hold over 10k RAW images from my 1D4. ;)

These are obviously geared towards those doing HD video. I wouldn't mind a 128GB card but this would be overkill for me since I don't do video.

HD video isn't even really that big, is it? 256GB should hold about 10hours of video from my 60D.

I think those new Canon EF camcorders eat up a lot of space but I didn't pay too much attention to the specs since I won't be buying one. One way or another video has to be the target for these megacards.

That new C300 Cinema EOS records at 50Mbps which equals 6.25MB/s. So that's 11.3 hours of video. The RED cameras can do 5k video, but use their own proprietary SSD based media.

Incendentally, the files from my 60D are showing up as 46Mbps....

(and I am not arguing with you, just looking it up out of curiosity)

They have to be aimed at video. Even if I use the 5D2 and shoot RAW + JPG this type of card is overkill for still photogs. One other possibility is that they're expecting 50MP sensors. ;)

I think they expect pro's to buy it so they can say "my card is bigger then yours". :lol:
