First CF card to have a built in RAID option
Here is the situation. Shooting on a HDSLR and no computer around to back up your video? Here is a good “in the field solution” as if you lose or physically damage your card nothing will help…..
Wise, a Japanese CF card manufacturer is about to introduce to the market their solution, a UDMA CF card with a built in RAID option.
According to the company’s web site (http://www.amulet.co.jp/products/Wise/Wise_CF_Duo.html) the new cards will be available during this month and will deploy an error correction method to significantly reduce any data loss.
The Compact Flash “Duo” cards will come in two flavours, 64GB (32GB in RAID mode) and 32GB (16GB in RAID mode). The data rate of those cards is: read 60MB write 50MB in standard mode and read 30MB write 25MB in mirroring mode
