Greetings to all -

I suppose this journal entry is mostly aimed at the digital photography people among us

For one reason or another, I have managed to form quite strong (yet completely untested) opinions regarding storage mediums for digital cameras. I don’t really know why, but I do not want to use anything other than Compact Flash. I have not used ANY of the other mediums, but for some reason, I hate them Why? I do not know.

I think it's because it’s established technology - old, yet compact (no pun intended ) and fast. There are so many different types of storage out there now, and I'm sure half of them will disappear in a couple of years.

CF has been around for quite some time, and for a while I thought it might be on the way out. I was greatly relieved when Canon and Nikon decided to use it in their latest cameras.

As a result of its recent popularity resurgence, I'm sure it will remain the media of choice for many years to come. I hope so anyway - I've got too much of the stuff to just throw it away. The thought of not being able to use it with my future cameras terrifies me

Anyway, enough boring dribble - What storage medium do you use?
