Over the years the media card formats have shrunk. I can remember when compact flash and smart media were once big (I had a FujiFilm cam that used smart media) and the new formats were expensive/non existent.
With devices shrinking in size there was a need for smaller cards…. but this brings up the question “When is small too small?
When i went to my Palm Treo 700p I had found that my old 512mb sd card was dying… it was cheaper for me to get 2gb MicroSD cards with their included adapters than to get the older SD format. The new cards i got inspired me to to do this photo set that places MicroSD next to many common objects.
