      Although most digital cameras have moved on to using SD memory cards these days, I still have a bit of a soft spot for the older CompactFlash (CF) format. It is very robust, more so than the newer type, and because it is a bit chunkier than an SD card it is also rather more difficult to get lost! Pretec are perhaps not one of the real top names in

      memory cards, but I have had fairly good experiences with their cards over the years, and this 32MB CF card is no exception.

      Visual design is an aspect of memory cards which I feel is sometimes rather neglected. OK, so most of the time the card will be hidden away inside your camera and invisible anyway, but I do think that it adds just a touch of extra pleasure to ownership if ...


      • when you handle a card you get a sense that some thought has gone into its design, rather than it just being churned out by the million in a completely generic way.

        This card was made in Taiwan, which is a little unusual since most seem to come from mainland China, but does not seem to affect the quality. I did not find it to be an enormously fast card, and so

        you would probably not want to use it in a professional SLR - not that 32MB is a large enough capacity for most SLR purposes anyway - but for simple use in a basic compact camera it does its job quite efficiently and without any fuss. As such, if you happen to find a Pretec card on sale cheap, I don’t think there is any reason to shy away from buying it.
