A mere pup. My first computer didn't have a hard drive. I was happy when I finally got a second floppy drive. After saving my money, I bought a 5MB Apple Profile hard drive for $1200.OK, I did it. I know, I'm a fool for technology, but for less than $350, I just doubled my CF card capacity (previously 24GB, now 48GB). I should be able to get through an entire week of shooting without ever downloading any images. :biggrin:
And to think, my first computer had a 20MB hard drive. Shows how old I am, huh?!??
Maybe a newer technology to write the data from that D3H/X twice as fast as the current cards? The extreme IV already have a 40MB/s write speed while the Extreme III can "only" handle 20MB/s :wink:Actually Don, I was thinking of the D3H (or whatever is next). I have more than enough for the D2Hs. Just want to be sure that they will work. The huge drop in prices makes one wonder what is coming next in flash memory though, huh?
Ok, you win. That's far more than I paid, and I wasn't fond of letting go of $1200 back then.I fondly remember paying over $4K for a 5MB hard disk.
Those were the days!
The difference between the Hyperdrive and the P2000 is speed of downloading data from CF card to the portable storage device. The Hyperdrive is a champ at doing this.Andrew,
Yes, I did misunderstand. I do have an Epson P-2000 for just this purpose. Prior to (and during) my trip to Merritt in Feb, I only had a few GB of CF storage though, and with the D200, I was constantly dumping cards. Shouldn't have to do that now. :biggrin:
