Card reader makes this useful to me
on September 13, 2009
I like the capacity 8 GB gets you for pictures even from 10+ megapixel cameras (Canon Powershot A1000IS). I'm a little disappointed that the "class 6" doesn't really seem that much faster than my old card but I haven't done a thorough study so maybe I'm storing a lot more data (than my old camera) in about the same amount of time. I was also disappointed that the Kodak picture printer we use doesn't read the card (I assume because there is something different about the class 6.) So the card reader is critical in the two-step process I always have to use to get the pictures to a computer (because my old laptop doesn't have a direct SD slot) and then onto some other memory device (like an old card.) The Kodak picture printer has a USB slot but the casing of the machine doesn't allow the card reader to fit into it. Maybe the whole thing is the incompatibility of trying to use newer technology in older devices.
