I began with a lot of enthusiasm for rainy day pictures, but the reality of venturing out in to it didn't have the same pull as the idea of it. I settled for a glimpse out of a window.
So what did I do instead? Well I have this new PNY MicroSD card that I wanted to try out in both my small camera and my phone. The package says for smartphone or tablet and "also compatible with compact camera". So I gave it a whirl.
So I popped it into my ageing smart phone. (I'm resisting pressure to upgrade. It is a perfectly good phone.) I have been hovering on the edge of using up the storage so increasing this facility seemed like a grand way to give extended life to the pink pimped old chap.
Seriously simple to pop the card into the allocated slot and then copy all those pics and music across. Seemed fast enough to me. To check it out though I downloaded an app that would give me all the tech specs (for those of you who simply love numbers). My app tells me it is reading at 13MB/s and writing at 14MB/s.
With the additional 32GB I have I can now store 14226 small file images or 3161 biggies or 480 mins of high quality video.
So far it's performed as claimed. I'm pretty happy with it.
