Seagate today previewed what it claimed is the world's first 5GB CompactFlash media storage card.
Targeting digital photography hobbyists and professionals who shoot and store large volumes of high-resolution digital photos, the ultra-high capacity CF Type II Photo hard drive cards will ship commercially next month available in 2.5GB and 5GB capacities.
Seagate said that its 5GB card holds over 1,500 6-megapixel high-resolution pictures, or over 4,000 3-megapixel standard resolution pictures on a single card.
"Seagate wants to bring photographers reliable, simple storage to shoot and store thousands of high-resolution photos without changing CompactFlash drive, then easily share online, or print from your computer," said Brian Dexheimer, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Seagate.
