Improve Your Memory

Just about every digital camera on the market these days comes with a memory card that—there's no nice way to say it—just plain sucks. In order to save money, the manufactures ship their cameras with these puny little cards that barely hold any pictures. It might have been OK to ship a 16 MB or 32 MB card with a 2 megapixel camera, but in these days of higher pixel counts these little suckers are as useless as lips on a chicken.

There are several types of memory cards available, and depending on the kind your camera uses (and your budget) you can get cards as large as 8 GB (Figure 12.9). The most common memory card formats are CompactFlash, SD, xD, and MemoryStick. You can only use the type of memory card designed for your camera. (Look on the card that was included—the sticker will tell you what variety it is.)
