Does anyone else think it is silly that we can get 12MPixel cameras, 6Gb CF microdrives but noone puts a USB2 or firewire port in the housings?
I can shoot several hundred RAW pics on my Canon 5D using a 6Gb card but when I want to download these I am forced to open the camera to get to the card!
Short of rolling my own (certainly possible using an extra flash port) has anyone else found a commercial solution to this problem?
Am I crazy or doesn't this seem like sometjing we all would want?

On housings where it's really hard to open the unit to get the card out, I can see where this may be a worthwhile accessory. Matt seems to think so, and for his housing, I agree.
But with housings where it's easy to just pop open the back and pull the card out, I'm much happier doing that, and then using the super-fast cardbus adapter in my laptop.

Besides, you gotta drink sometime.

BTW, even if you never open your housing, it IS going to leak someday!
