The best memory cards for a camera are an absolutely essential part of the photo or video process. Like the canvas for a painter, they are the place your images will be recorded. Depending on what camera you have, you will need a different type of memory card, so it pays to do your research and make sure you get the right one.

This isn't just a software issue – different types of memory card are physically different, so the wrong card won't just not work with your camera, but won't physically fit in the slot. It should be fairly easy to ascertain which type(s) of card work with your camera – just check the manual, or do a quick Google.
