DSLR memory card tips



Besides the camera, a memory card is one of the vital component in photographing. That’s why it’s important to be careful in your handling of your memory card to ensure the safety of your data and memory card chip. The following are a few tips to care for and keep your memory cards healthy and long-lasting.

1.Use a card reader.
When transferring photos from a memory card to the computer, many would resort to directly plugging the camera into the computer. This is quite inefficient and can drain your camera battery. Or worse, it could lead to a surge if your usb port is problematic.
It’s recommended that you use a card reader to transfer your photos to the computer. There are 2 advantages to this. One, you’ll have a quicker data transfer. And two, you avoid any mishaps because your camera won’t be part of the file-transfer equation.
Keep in mind also, I highly recommend you use a quality card reader to avoid any problems to your memory cards. Chucking out a few extra bucks for a quality card reader may save you money in the long run from having to buy a new memory card. Read the rest of this entry »
