CompactFlash(R) was the memory card format that started the digital photography revolution and remains the choice format for professional grade photography camera designs. In the last five years, broadcast class professional video cameras have started the transition from tape and optical media to solid state media. Increasingly professional DSLR cameras have also added high quality high definition video recording capabilities.
