The days where consumers would expand their storage capacity with an 8 MB flash memory card are a long time ago. microSD cards with 32GB for a smart phone are a common fact. The increase of capacity is significant, but so is also the capacity we need for all our digital data we collect. Mobile imaging photographers shoot with their camera phone, DSLR photographers capture stills and HD video, and camcorder enthusiasts capture their favorite moment in Full High Definition quality. Due to the increase of high resolution material, more storage capacity and more speed is needed. The flash memory card and the hard discs are the most popular and used storage solutions.
