Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Memory Cards.....But Were Afraid To Ask

OK, memory cards may not be the most exciting topic around, but there's that card stuck inside that expensive fancy camera and it's holding all your photos. Screw up the card and there goes that whole photo tour, workshop, weekend, outing  etc.  Card corruption only has to happen once for you to suddenly become more interested.

I happen to run across what seems to be a pretty definitive article that contains a lot of great information and suggestions. The one that grabbed me the most was a fact that I hadn't realized and will change what I do.......never delete single images from the card using your camera. I have to admit that I have done this in the past with no adverse effects, but why risk it!

The article is by Jeff Cable, and you can find it here.  It's definitely worth a read!
