When I bought my new camera I noticed that one of the features mentioned on the box was the 10MB of internal memory. Now I knew that that 10MB is pretty useless when it comes to storing digital photos and so I bought a 1GB SD card along with the camera.
It was only when playing around with the camera earlier today, however, that I realised just how useless the internal memory really is. Once the memory has been formatted etc. there is so little space that you can store just one photo at the highest quality on the internal memory.
What use is the ability to store one extra photo? Surely it would have made more sense not to add internal memory to the camera. Either the camera would have been cheaper or the manufacturers would have had a bigger profit margin, either way it makes more sense than adding complexity to the camera for the sake of storing a single photo!
