I was talking digital cameras with a friend of mine recently. It turns out that our cameras take different memory card formats, and therefore we couldn’t share and swap if necessary.
That’s when I had an idea that I’m sure will be quickly shot down as wildly impractical.
Why not replace flash cards with flash drives? Replace all the SD/CF/MMC/whatever slots with a simple USB socket that you could plug a USB drive (flash drive, mini hard drive, whatever) into? You could choose whatever type or size you wanted. Feeling cheap? Grab a 128MB keychain drive. Shooting some video? Then use a 5GB mini hard drive and go nuts.
There’s got to be a flaw with my idea. This is the point where you, the faithful Wizbang readers, point out just how I’m talking out of my butt.
Have at it, folks.
