05/26/06: Treat your cards well

Basic tip - Treat your cards well

You can get the most of your removeable media cards (compact flash, smart media, secure digital, etc.) by doing a few simple things. First, always format your card in the camera -- deleting pictures in the camera or on the computer is not the "cleanest" way to manage your cards. By formatting the cards in the camera, you'll be sure to get the most from your cards -- it's analogous to using a wet wash cloth to clean a chalk board vs. only using an eraser. The eraser will leave behind lots of chalk dust just like deleting pictures manually will leave behind bytes on your card.

Also, be sure to keep your cards in protective cases when not in use. You'll prevent damage to the cards that way! :)

Have a great weekend and happy shooting! -- Dan
