I am looking for a new compact flash memory for my futaba 12Z transmitter... CF from futaba are very expensive and low in capacity but...

How large can it be? 4 GB?... 2 GB?... velocity? 200X? 1X? 30 MB/sec... It is difficult for me in my country to get an old fashion 32MB CF on stores...

It is a little confuse and instruction manual don't give us a clue...

Any suggestions base on your particular experience?

I have 4 of the standard Sandisk 2G/1G cards. I have read that you should only use the basic (slowest) cards, not the Extreme type.

My cards have been fine, but do not know what else *might* work.

I know that up to 2GB and not a high speed card works fine. I have a 96MB card and have never even come close to filling it!! Compact Flash cards are getting hard to find, but when you do they are dirt cheap.

I think Futaba is settling on the SD card as a standard for future radios.

Compact Flash cards getting hard to find? Take a look on eBay, there's thousands of them, dirt cheap. That's where I got my last two.

True enough. I was talking about at local retail outlets like BestBuy, etc. Sorry, I should have been more clear. But even on eBay smaller cards are hard to find. A 32 MB CF card is almost an antique now!!

Futaba looks to be moving away from the CF card to the SD cards. 8GB in the size of a postage stamp! Amazing. I wonder how many models that will hold!!

Find someone with a camera and get their old cards free. I got 2 GB cards and gave away all of my old 512 MB cards.

And I paid $10 each for the 2 GB.

I put a 2 gig in my 14MZ and it will now hold over 6000 models. Like why?

The 2 GB are for the DX100 camera. That's the largest it can address. The old smaller ones are for the TX.

Folks, most high-end cameras use CF cards. They are very unlikely to go away anytime soon.

My EOS, takes CF, the newest 1D takes both...granted the movement may be toward SD, but there are too many high end Canon and Nikon that take CF for them to go away any time soon.

I wish I could afford a 1D!! But I stand corrected. In the Canon line the 7D and up use CF cards. The rest of the consumer line (affordable to mere mortals) use SD format cards in general.

Mongo Nikon have dual CF slots.

It's because you can get up to 128 GB (with a G) in one CF.

Considering that most consumer grade cameras use SD cards and the high capacity CF cards are still around in high end professional SLR cameras, perhaps Futaba will carry the same theme. SD cards are used in the 8FG and 12FG, so maybe big CF cards will still be used in the "Pro" 18MZ Better yet, how cool would a thumb drive be??

The 18MZ does in-fact use SD. Oh, it does also have a USB port...

The 18's USB is user accessible. Look for more information about this in the near future.
