About Compact Flashes
These days when you enter a computer store and ask for a Compact Flash card, the attendants look at you with deep suspicion. But it is not a prank. Your Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras do use those cards. These cards are bigger than more common memory cards, such as microSD and full SD cards. This makes them more rugged and less likely to get lost. These features and the high write speeds of these cards make them ideal storage units for professional cameras. With a 64 GB Compact Flash card, you can comfortably shoot in RAW format without worrying about running out of space before getting back to your laptop. Because most PCs and mobile devices are not equipped with readers for this class of memory cards, you will require a Compact Flash card reader to transfer your great shots to a PC for editing and upload. Fortunately, you can find this reader and Compact Flash cards of various capacities among the wide selection of memory cards available on eBay.
