CF card with built-in raid backup

Interesting, possible use for my D700.

Anyone ever heard of Wise cards?

    I saw the new this morning. I think Wise is new to the market.

    I am trying to figure out why I want a raid capable memory chip, if I have a camera with two slots.

    It would be much more interesting if I were using one memory slot cameras.

    I guess if you were in a situation where it was truly a once in a lifetime shot and you could not risk any chance of lost files it might make sense. It would suck to have a Pulitzer worthy news photo lost before you could pull it off of the card.

    OK, after thinking today, here is one possible fail safe senario for the dual slot camera user.

    Two Wise cards set up A & B. Send *.JPG to A and *.RAW to B.

    The if, say Slot One failed or the card in Slot One failed then you could still store on the card in Slot Two and have some back up redundancy.

    To do it this way would require cards double the capacity of what you usually buy. I standardized around 16Gb cars so that would mean I would have you purchase 32 Gb cards.

    A Second scenario would be to shoot *.jpg and *raw to Slot one and Video *MP4 and *.MOV to the second.

    Such as weddings, which I'm now shooting.

    My D700 has only one slot. CF.

    That is news. I don't think I knew the D700 had only one slot.
