Seagate brings 5 gigabytes of storage to your digital camera

By Derek Sooman on January 5, 2005, 2:07 PM
Seagate will be providing a 5 gigabyte CF harddrive that is intended for use in digital cameras. Providing an alternative for Compact Flash cards, the new drives will be available in capacities of 2.5 and five gigabytes.

Seagate has not yet announced pricing, but said in June 2004 that the device will be available for "less than $150". Hitachi's 2.2 GByte MicroDrive currently retails for about $170.

The drive will enable users to store about 500 six- megapixel pictures or more than 4000 three-megapixel images on one card.
