Amazing shrinking memory

Micro SD

I just ordered a SanDisk 4GB Micro SDHC memory card to add a little storage capacity to my BlackBerry Curve. I know these things have been out for a while but it never ceases to amaze me how small they actually are.

I picked it up for $4.54 from The shipping charge of $4.95 cost more than the memory card itself. I think it is safe to assume that the bottom has fallen out of the memory market ;-) My guess? The memory manufacturers are busy trying to invent the next great memory format so they can try to actually make some money again. My advice? Upgrade your memory TODAY!

Just for the record, here’s that Micro SD card next to the SD card-sized adapter it came with…

Oh, and I would suggest picking some of these $4 Micro SD cards up for your digital camera applications but this version only clicks along at 15MB/s. If you’re going to upgrade then be sure you upgrade (30MB/s should be your target).

I'm an industrial designer and an avid hobbyist photographer. People are always asking me "how'd you do that?" So, I decided to create this site as a place to share my experiences and insights about photography, the gear and what it all means to me. I'm not sure if this site will make anyone besides myself a better photographer but I figure it's worth a try. Take a look around and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by!
