Where to buy a cheap digital camera memory card

Digital photographers, amateurs and professionals alike, need reliable basic digital camera equipment. One needs the main camera to shoot photos, batteries to power it, and the memory card to store the shots. Usually, digital cameras are sold with low-capacity memory cards (about 235 MB) for free, but extra cards of larger capacity are highly recommended. This article will help you find cheap digital camera memory cards.

Types of memory cards

Different types of cameras use different memory cards. The most common type is the SD (Secure Digital) card, which is compatible to many point-and-shoot cameras. Another type is the Compact Flash, used in digital SLRs. It is known for fast transfer rates and the capability to store large photos. The SDHC (SD High Capacity) looks like an SD card, but can store up to 32 GB worth of photos and rival the speed of the CF card. Other memory cards are brand compatible, like Sony’s Memory Stick Pro Duo and Olympus/Fuji’s XD Picture card.
