Lately, the resolution of digital SLR cameras has increased considerably with 24 megapixels. This has a direct effect on the file size of the pictures. In addition, the integration of video availability in the DSLR camera generates more data to store on a memory card than just pictures. The storage capacity of a flash memory card has significantly increased with 64GB; in addition, the development of the SDXC card will provide us with sufficient storage capacity. The roadmap shows a 2TB SXDC card. Besides flash memory, the hard disk continues to play a big role in the digital workflow. The PMA 2011 show provides an overview of various hard disk solutions with several unique solutions. Flash memory continues to innovate, and will thus have an even more important role in our work environment.
