Digital devices aren’t infallible. People have had nightmares occur: Taking pictures on a long vacation on a digital camera and then finding when they get back home that the data cannot be retrieved because the memory card has been corrupted. While it’s possible to retrieve data from a damaged memory card or hard disk, this can be prohibitively expensive. It is important to use a memory card with the utmost reliability.
At ElectroFlip we offer the highest-quality memory cards available: SanDisk memory cards. The fact that these memory cards are backed up by a five year warranty should give you a sense of just how reliable these cards are. Don’t think for a moment that all memory cards are the same – quality matters and without a good memory card a digital device is functionally useless. A memory card is the brain of the device.
Size is important as well and SanDisk has memory cards up to 8 GB. This is also an important consideration. With digital video becoming more commonplace, a disk’s memory can get filled up very fast. If you’re not able to upload data to your computer, you will have to replace the memory card and a card can get lost or damaged in the process. If you’re going on an extensive trip, it’s better to err on the side of caution and buy a higher GB card so you will not have to think about running out of space. Even if you’re able to continually upload to a harddrive, you want to have the most durable and reliable memory disk available.
