Got memory? I have a terrible short-term memory, as some of you may know. But that's not what this blog is about. Actually, I wanted to talk memory for your camera.
There's a lot to choose from and they all perform differently and offer various perks. There's the Eye-Fi that automatically transfers images to your computer and organizes photos and videos for you. There's only SD cards available. You also must have WiFi, obviously, and the camera must be turned on in the house for the transfer to work. Check out this video that explains more about Eye-Fi...
There's also Hoodman RAW, which is a compact flash card, and the Hoodman RAW STEEL, which is an SD card. Here's what's good to know about these cards... they are really fast, solid state drives. You can download 1GB of images in 15 seconds actually - crazy speed. The Hoodman RAW STEEL is literally made of steel and happens to be water proof too.
I use Hoodman, but I also use Lexar and Sandisk too. There are a ton of options with all of the above, such as size and speed. I've always been of the mind that I don't want to have all of my eggs in one basket. The idea of having a Lexar 32GB Card seems scary. However, having a card that size is nice when shooting video and continuous shutter, such as sports.
Beware, though. There are many cards out there that are priced "to sell". Be cautious and don't buy anything simply based on price-point - you get what you pay for. Be sure you're getting the right size and speed for what you're shooting.
... I lost my train of thought.... oh yeah... memory... mine or my cameras? Just kidding! Happy shooting everyone.
