SanDisk: now has 4, 8 and 16 GB flash cards

So, now I'm drooling for a $100 flash card that will hold 16 GBytes. Right now, we're at about $170 for 2 GBytes of premium
flash, $200 for 4 GBytes of regular flash. Someday, each file will be a WAV file, split by shooting time. If you're in a jam for space,
the file can be compressed to MPEG2 by the camcorder. You'll be able to shoot in any format you like, including a version of DV or HDV with less compression. The tape drive will be a backup storage option, and capture will be six times faster.

SanDisk Corporation has expanded its industrial product line with the introduction of 4 and 8GB ComopactFlash cards and 8 and 16GB PC cards. The new cards double the current maximum capacity available and offer faster read and write times of 20 megabytes per second. Industrial grade CF and PC cards offer extended temperature ranges, extreme endurance, an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of 3 million hours, extended shock and vibration resistance, complete serialization and traceability, and a seven-year warranty. The standard grade cards offer a competitively priced product with high endurance and 1 million hours of MTBF.

Now all we need is a LANC based firewire device that is similar to the Firestore or Snapstream drives that will accept CF cards...
