compact flash cards

Chris Marquardt

Episode 1122

Today's photo topic is memory cards. Which cards should you buy and do you need the fastest ones? Chris says there's no difference anymore between Compact Flash cards and SD cards performance wise. And the prices have come down. For regular everyday photography, speed doesn't really matter. Video though, a class 10 is a good speed. And they're not that expensive. Chris also treats cards like film. Once they're full, he replaces them like he replaces film. That way he's always using a new card. And then they serve as a backup once he's moved them onto the computer.
