The only thing that it doesn't do well is hold SD cards as well as it holds the CF cards.
Dave Wohl
For me that's about all of the cards I would take for a few days shooting, without bringing a laptop.
R. Freiberger
In a perfect world, I would rather have something other than the very noisy, Velcro closure.

I bought this to manage 9 CF cards that I use when shooting weddings or other events. Previously I was keeping them in the plastic cases they come with and had a couple of small holders which only held 2 cards each. I was sticking the full cards in my pocket and was always paranoid I was going to lose them. My requirements were to have a small wallet which could hold 10 or more cards but not be so bulky that it couldn't fit in my pocket. This meets all those requirements and is very well built, but there are a couple of concerns/problems I have.

The potential loss of data is not something that can be tolerated when shooting a client's event, there's no re-shoot for a wedding. This wallet (and I think most others) require you to put the cards in bare without the plastic case. This makes me a little nervous that dust or debris might get inside the cards and make them unreadable. I have found that not dealing with the plastic cases has the advantage that there's less fumbling around with cards when switching. This means there's less of a chance of dropping a card which can also cause data loss. Having the wallet hold the cards with plastic cases would make it very bulky as well.

The main shortcoming with this product that I don't think I would have even noticed without researching some of the other offerings is that there's no way to mark full cards as used. The Tamrac bags have a red flagging system that can be used to mark used cards and batteries. Something like this would be very useful in the Think Tank product. Another problem for me is the velcro closure. It's just too loud to open during a quiet wedding ceremony in a church.

All that being said, I'm very happy with the product and would buy it again. I don't see any other products on the market that can meet my needs any better, and if Think Tank introduces a new product with the features I think are missing, I'd surely pick one up.

I've used a handful of card holders, from simple zippered two card holders, to the Think Tank Pixel Pocket reviewed here. In the past I was shooting with two memory cards, which I would stuff inside the digital camera case with no problem. Also the issue of which card was full is pretty easy to solve, it's either this one or the other. But when I started to move towards higher megapixel cameras and then shooting digital SLR's I found that I ran into two problems.

The first problem was that many card holders did not have any indication of which cards were used or not. I did find a Tamrac card holder, which used small red tabs which were place holders for used cards. I liked this feature but the card holder was too small, only holding 4 cards at a time. During this time, I was shooting maybe 4 cards and moving towards more cards vs more larger data sizes because of the high prices in larger compact flash cards.

The second problem was space, most of the card holders would hold an amount of 4~6 cards, and at that, were very bulky, by having zippers or extra padding to protect the cards. I wanted something that I would store in my camera bag and didn't need the extra padding, also wanted something that was very simple to use.

I did some research and bought a Think Tank Speed Racer waist pack earlier this year which came with the Pixel Pocket. At first I was thinking it's just a "freebie" card holder that most companies throw in their bags. But after checking it further, I really started to like the design and how well built it was.

The Pixel Pocket has a very long tether. Now this may seem to be useless depending on how you are holding your cards but for me, any extra means of securing the cards to my bag are a welcome change.

I'm a wedding photographer, so I need a card case that can hold plenty of cards, and is something I can strap to my body to minimize the possibility of loss. There is absolutely NO excuse for not having your cards on you at all times as a wedding shooter. I've heard horror stories of card cases falling out of luggage, being stolen with gear bags, etc. That's why you strap them on you. You can replace gear. You can't replace once in a lifetime images.

This case is easy to use and makes card management a breeze. I put fresh cards facing up, and used cards I flip around so I can tell at a glance how many cards I've burned through and which ones I have left. The little strap that comes with it can be hooked to a belt loop. (The plastic fastener on the strap isn't the best, I suggest upgrading it by switching to a carabiner.)

My partner swore by using the CF card holders in his lens bag until he tried my pixel pocket out, and then he wouldn't return it to me! So now we have two. The other thing I love is the business card holder. Shooting events, I don't really have time to return to my camera bag to give a card out if someone asks for one. It's nice to just have a few on me at all times.

I do have two issues with it that keep me from giving it 5 stars. The velcro is LOUD, especially if you are trying to discretely switch cards in a church during a ceremony. I have to remember to take an extra card out ahead of time and keep it loose in my pocket, which I don't like doing. I would LOVE an option with a silent fastener.

Secondly, when fully loaded to capacity with CF cards and a small pinch of, say, five business cards - it barely closes. I wish it was just a little bit roomier, because I almost always have it filled to capacity.
