I seemed to recall people mentioning SD->CF adapters recently, so Googling
for "adapter CF SD" brought back such things as:
one issue being that some adapters don't fit 100% the CF card form factor,
so I'm not sure whether they would fit for your application... However,
Panasonic has made a small CF card-sized adapter that look very good. See:
http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1052753685.html (article on the
Minolta adapter, which is probably just a Panasonic with a label)
so I think that it's possible to use a SD card...
