Vegas jet lag must have caused us to miss this one, but Silicon Power recently rolled out the world's first 400x 128GB CompactFlash memory card.

We've yet to see any mention of pricing and availability, but for the professional photographer, write speeds of up to 90MB/s with support for both PIO Mode-6 and Multi-Word DMA 4 transfer modes in quad-channel configuration is likely to be worth the asking fee.

As expected, error-correcting code (ECC) and wear-levelling technology feature as standard, and Silicon Power backs the card with a lifetime warranty.

Sold? Here's the complete specification:

  • Dimension: 36.4mmx42.8mmx3.3mm
  • Weight: 10g-12g
  • In compliance with CF Association specifications
  • Operating voltage: 3.3V/5V
  • Operating temperature: 0℃~70℃
  • Storage temperature: -40℃~85℃
  • Capacity: 128GB / 64GB / 32GB / 16GB / 8GB
  • Humidity: 8% to 95%
  • Durability: At least plug and unplug 10,000 times
  • Warranty: Lifetime

640k should be enough for anyone.

I filled more than 128gb last time I went on holiday with only a k20d.

Someone with a full frame, who is doing any HDR or fast moving stuff will fill this easily.

That said with current cameras they might have to change their battery once or twice :D
I know some people who'd happily fill that over the course of an evening out.

As you might have guessed, I'm not one of them.
I know it's aimed at the photography market, but I can't help thinking about pairing it with something like this for a teeny-tiny nettop ;)
With an A900 you would be looking at over 2000 pictures in RAW+jpeg mode with a 128GB card.

TBH,unless I had a camera with dual card slots I would not want to have all my pictures on one card unless I had a notebook to hand for periodic backups.

I suppose for covering an event even with a 35MM full frame digital camera it would be useful to have such capacity.

I see this card being more useful for medium format digital cameras TBH.
I wonder if a 1D-III would work properly long enough to fill one though! ;)
