card1

I will start off by saying I am partial to SanDisk memory cards, but I recently found a great write up on their website that is pretty much universal, explaining the difference between SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

As cameras get smaller, one of the places they can choose to save space is in the memory card department. A great case in point is the new Nikon 1 J4, which ditched standard SD cards in favor of their smaller micro counterparts.

Lexar Announces Its Own CFast 2.0 Card, Claims ‘World’s Fastest Memory Card’ Title

Enter Toshiba and its new Exceria Pro series of SDHC cards that will offer “the world’s fastest data write speeds,” and we again have something to get excited about in the world of storage. Read more…
