ok, here is what they have to say: Because of a couple of things. One, it’s a bit of a cumbersome slot. You’ve got this thing sticking halfway out. Then there are very fine and fast USB card readers, and then you can use CompactFlash as well as SD. So we could never really resolve this – we picked SD because more consumer cameras have SD but you can only pick one. So, that was a bit of a trade-off. And then more and more cameras are starting to build wireless transfer into the camera. That’s proving very useful. So we think there’s a path forward where you can use a physical adaptor if you want, or do wireless transfer. I just could not believe what I am reading. So they are worried that this thing is sticking halway out and yet they are not worried for multiple dongles and adaptors sticking out from every side? Also...who are the Pro photographers that are using wireless transfers?
