Seagate 8GB Compact Flash Card
- Massive storage
- Hard disk limits write time
If you need space but not speed then maybe this card is for you.
Price$ 449.00 (AUD)
As the resolution of camera sensors continues to grow, photographers will need to increase their storage space to ensure they can always capture shots when needed. The Seagate eight gigabyte compact flash card is currently the forerunner in terms of raw size. The first eight gigabyte memory in this format, it offers the potential to store 300 or 400 files shots even in uncompressed formats.
Compact flash isn't as widely supported as the more popular SD card (Secure Disk) but many advanced models thankfully cater for it. Unlike SD cards however, this Seagate unit is actually a hard drive, as opposed to flash memory. What this means is, whilst it may be big it is certainly not quick. Most professional photographers are going to be looking for speedy write times to minimize down time between shots (RAW and TIFF files can already take a long time to write), and thus unless you need a mammoth amount of space and are only shooting JPEGs, you might be better off purchasing several smaller cards to maximize speed.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
