SanDisk CF survives blast that destroys camera

Dennis Hissink : 2004-09-08 09:00:21
When a demolition crew set off an explosion to bring down an old highway bridge on the Mississippi River, newspaper photographer Don Frazier was so close that his hair stood on end. His digital camera, positioned on a tripod at an even closer point to remotely capture the event, fared much worse. It was blown to bits. But to Frazier's amazement, there on the ground, inches from the shattered remnants of his new pro-level camera, was his SanDisk 256MB CompactFlash card, which he had owned since 1999. Surprisingly, except for a few nicks, it was unscathed, even though it had been blasted from the camera chamber. And when he inserted the card into a PC reader, up popped an image that has astonished everyone who's seen it.

The range of memory cards by Fujifilm has now been increased to include the MMC card. With capacities of 64 MB to 1GB the new memory media is used primarily in mobile phones and PDAs.
