About CF Cards (see also Compact Flash at Wikipedia)

CF storage cards are based on the Parallel ATA interface (PATA). These products are used in Professional Imaging, both for still and video recording markets. These products are preferred by professionals for both their performance and their handling characteristics.

CF storage cards are also used widely in the industrial and communications market, due to their robustness and handling quality.

The high level performance capabilities of CF storage cards continues to improve with each version. To get the most out of your CF card purchase, match or exceed the host (camera) capability with the CF storage card version. For camera use, both the write speed in camera and the read speed   for later image processing should be considered.

CF 4.1a products are widely available at speeds up to 90 MB/s sequential access speed. Compliant CF Cards implementing CF 4.1a use this logo.

CF 5.0 products include more efficient commands (higher performance) and these cards support Trim operations for consistent speed. Compliant CF Cards implementing CF 5.0 display this logo.

The CF 6.0 specification has just been introduced and these cards are expected to support up to 120 MB/s and these cards support the Sanitize command (the ultimate card refresh).
