The first 4MB flash memory card was launched a few years back.
Memory cards come in various colors, shapes and capacities. Speed memory cards show us how fast the card reacts when transferring data. For example, 12x, 24x and so on. Sometimes the speed is measured in MB/s.
Memory cards are increasingly used in cell phones, cameras and various devices. Therefore, they need memory cards that have the ability to store more data in order to maintain image quality or video quality at its best. If you used your camera and during shooting you had to wait to click again, this is due to a slow memory card.
Professional photographers are always in need of faster cards. If you use voice recorders or MP3 recorders, you’ll also benefit from faster memory cards.
However, your memory card is not only judged by its speed alone. Speed also exists for a camera or mobile phone and is therefore pointless to have a very good and fast mobile phone while the card is slow or vice versa. You should always check the capacity of your devices you will need a memory card for before you go to purchase a memory card. It makes no sense to take the fastest card if your device does not support it.
