Thanks for your kind words :-)

And I agree with you. I've no interest in having my images stored to the camera directly - cards just work very well, in my experience. Was just seeking to clarify what question had been raised :-). Apart from anything else, the ability to write to two cards in parallel is a powerful source of redundancy (not that I often do that, but it's good to know one can)

Those numbers seem extreme to me. 8TB in the camera? I think I get something like 2,000 images an a 256mb card with my Z. It's very unusual that i would go over 500 shots on a shoot with that camera...
I was being mildly tongue in cheek

The biggest issue I can see with built in SSD is the risk of data corruption. I had it happen in the Z with a 256Gb card some years ago. At least with a card you can take it out and replace it. If the built in SSD goes kaput then the whole unit has to be sent off, and if out of warranty, that could be expensive, and seeing how long Pentax can take with repairs, I wouldn't want to contemplate that...

The most annoying thing with SD cards is that the plastic between the contacts gets loose and comes off in the slot, and then the camera cannot read any card even though it will slot in. Have had it happen a few times.

In the case of some of my star trail images, and imagining going on a trip where I might do a few of them before I get the chance to download, you weren't very far from the truth

Delkin's Black series SD cards do away with the fragile plastic "fingers" and lock switch.

New sensor!

Sony releases new medium format size sensor. They claim it isn't for the consumer market. We will see.

It is for industrial use (clearly explained) and the dimension is not what we are used to see : 46,5mm x 33mm approx
Maybe there will be an equivalent for photography, but it will not be this IMX661 directly.

Hi,

As a photographer and as someone who has made many a vision system for industrial use, I can say no one here is likely to be happy with the output of industrial sensors. I cannot imagine that this one will be different in that regard. They are built to do only one or two things well and are not versatile enough for general photography. This one seems built for fast shooting with high resolution and I bet dollars to donuts that the dynamic range is pretty narrow.
