Looks like Duracell's found a Compact Flash manufacturer to slap their name onto. These are newly released 600x speed cards, which the real company 'Dane Elec' doesn't appear to have had before Duracell. One article stated the true speeds are actually closer to 500x, not sure if that's true, but that's still quite a bit of speed. A Duracell 32GB 600x Compact Flash card can run close to $90 US over on eBay, while on Amazon they're currently about $60 US, making them the cheapest 600x on the market. Now i've been using Kingston 32GB 133x early on which I still have for light video and light Photography, then switched over to Transcend 32GB 400x cards. I've been using all Transcend cards since in both CF and SDHC formats with no issues. I'm not ready to try anything new, but maybe a brave soul has already tested these out. Anyone have any real information or link to a review on these new Dane Elec / Duracell 600x's?

Wow, huge milestone on Amazon. Someone just dropped me a line about the 7" monitor I posted about earlier. They said they were able to get it from an Amazon seller. A reputable seller who's been shipping Lilliput monitors for years is now carrying the 7" HDMI version. Not that you couldn't find a USA seller before, but normally that meant a huge marked up price. The milestone here is that you can now pick it up from Amazon for the same price instead of waiting on Hong Kong shipping.

Oh and don't forget that you'll need a portable power option. Many people have already taken my advice on Portable power and picked up some of the Black and Decker battery packs featured in my video here: http://cheesycam.com/?p=215

Other options for Portable Power can be the Duracell Powersource Mobile. I haven't tried these, but others have purchased it with their monitors.
