Choosing Memory Cards for your Digital Camera
Camera Memory used to be exclusively the Compact Flash Card but technological advances first saw cards shrinking to the size of the SD card (Secure Digital) and then advances in mobile phones brought us the Micro SD card. (Post updated May 2016) One would used to think smaller meant less capacity but in the case of SD Cards the opposite has happened with the latest now boasting a staggering 512 gigabits of memory plus it’s waterproof, dustproof, X-ray proof and lots more – Sandisk Extreme Pro 512 gb . With the relatively rapid advances in capacities and transfer speeds has come confusion as there are now an array of cards available. So which memory card do you need for you camera? No point in spending too much and little point in buying something that is not “fit for purpose”.
