SxS Case?

Does anyone know if such a case is available? I'm looking to store 2 SxS cards into a single hard case. Eplican doesnt have one but Sandisk had one previously FOC but its all out!

If you really want a hard case, this one isn't the answer, but I really like it.

Case Logic model #JDC6 USB Drive Case
Price: $4.97 at Walmart

It holds 6 cards nice and snug, plus the mesh allows you to see the labels on the cards. I wish it had a loop to hook a carabiner, but that's my only complaint. For under 5 bucks it's a pretty good deal. Anyway, if you're still looking for a decent case, this might be a good idea.

Do you store them in this case in their plastic cases or just naked?

Naked. I threw the plasic cases away a long time ago.

All my cards are numbered and I store them upside down in the case if they have already been used on a shoot, and right-side up if they are blank.

Great idea Doug. Thanks!

BTW, I bought you're EX3 training DVD and love it. I've watched it twice now and took notes so that when we took delivery of our EX3 (got it 2 days ago) I'd be ready to start shooting.

Do you have a website where we can post follow up questions about your video? (I'm using your PP setting, but I'm still looking to get a bit more color out of the camera)
