When posing for photos, especially Instagram photos, people often forget about good taste and respect. Because of this, Auschwitz Museum is publicly urging its visitors to stop posing on the railway tracks that carried hundreds of thousands of victims to their deaths.
With film cameras, taking a photo used to be a process. But now, with smartphones and digital photography, all of us have a high-end camera in our pockets at all times. It’s estimated that people took a whopping 1.2 trillion of photos in 2018! But have you ever thought about an impact this has on us? How photography affects our mood and memories in the modern era? Peter Rubin of WIRED decided to explore it, and he brings some interesting findings in this 10-minute video.

With that in mind, I am writing this blog post to explain the many different memory card formats, including those from the past, current card formats and what might be the card of the future.
