Storage Card Abuse

gadgets storage card abuse

Digital Camera Shopper magazine tested 6 storage cards (CompactFlash, Secure Digital, xD, Memory Stick and Smartmedia) to the extreme:

“They were dipped into cola, put through a washing machine, dunked in coffee, trampled by a skateboard, run over by a child’s toy car and given to a six-year-old boy to destroy.”

Surprisingly they all survived those tests… but failed these two: “being smashed by a sledgehammer and being nailed to a tree”

This is good news… cameras can be replaced but photos you haven’t downloaded yet are irreplacible.
