Digital cameras', MP3 players, mobile telephones, digital videos have something in common. This equipment stores data on the internal memory or an external memory card. The digital images made by a digital camera are usually stored directly on a memory card. Most manufacturers prefer a certain type of memory card which is the reason why there is no standard in using one memory card. The digital images made by a digital camera can be stored in two ways: on the internal memory or on
a external changeable memory. Manufacturers use various memory cards or other storage media and sometimes they use a combination of storage media.
The advantage of using an external storage medium is that it can be taken out of the digital camera and transported without loosing the information that's on it.
Nowadays there are printers with a build-in memory slot, to make it possible to insert the memory card directly into the printer to print the images without interference of a computer. Below you'll find an overview of the most frequently used storage media.
