The Many Uses Of The Versatile Digital Camera Memory Card

By: Susan Jan

Gone are those days when you had to rush to and from the film laboratory shop to get your films developed to see the photographs you have taken. Add to that the trouble of having to constantly take out the used reel and loading a new one over and over again. Fortunately, the advent of the digital camera has brought an end to all these inconveniences and actually revolutionized the world of photography. And the device that ensures that you can take unlimited pictures with your digital camera of precious moments in your life is called the digital camera memory card.

Digital cameras are so convenient to use because they do not require the use of films. Digital camera memory cards store the images as electronic data files. These memory cards do not come with unlimited memory space in such a compact device as a digital camera. So the leading digital camera brands came up with a "removable memory" feature that can be expanded according to your photographic needs. This is precisely the facility provided by a memory card.

Memory cards are often referred to as the digital version of films. But unlike films, memory cards are so much more flexible in that they not only store images, they also allow you to transfer the images from the card to your PC. After the images have been transferred to the hard disk of the computer, you have the option of deleting the images from the memory card, thus clearing up memory space once again for you to reuse.

Using memory cards are so much more affordable than using traditional films. For the amateur photographer, one memory card is sufficient. If you plan to take a huge number of photographs at one go, even so two memory cards are more than sufficient. You can reuse them over and over again. Memory cards are also unlikely to be easily damaged. When you pass your digital camera and memory card through the X-ray machine at the airport, you can rest assured that the X-ray does not harm the memory card.

With the advancement in technologies, it is possible to make even greater use of the versatile memory card. Need more printouts? No problem, just go to the nearest photo kiosk where you simply insert your memory card to get more photo reprints. You can use special printers at home where you just insert the memory card into the printer to get more photo printouts. Then there is a device called the Digital Photo Viewer that enables you to view the images on the television screen by easily inserting the memory card into it.
