Memory cards or flash memory are another accessory virtually indispensable in most digital cameras today. At first almost all cameras come with internal memory to store images, but today most rely on external storage media (memory cards), and the best have a small internal memory as an alternative possibility, but which is not very wide. This evolution is that memory cards can expand storage space photos and videos, and store cards separately and then download them easily. Some recommendations already on the memory cards:

You will then have a “redundant”, ie, “double”, and when one works for you, you have the other as “spare” or emergency backup. The cameras incorporate some internal memory (now most good brands and models) also allows you serious photos from card to internal memory, and / or vice versa, which will be very useful for making backup of certain pictures, or to transfer to the card and then download it from, if you do not have the cable to do so from the camera.
Carry spare cards. It is always better to have two cards that add a certain storage capacity, a single which has that same capacity. This is a simple matter of precaution and probabilities: If you have two, and one fails, it will be the other, if you have two, and a data is deleted, it will be the other, whereas if you a … is clear, right?.
To carry spare cards, should also have a place to store them safely until they are inside the camera. These “holder” are sold separately, but usually tend to come “gift” when you purchase the card.
