Since the development of the instant camera, the photography’s world has changed. You can take a not so great shot with a digital camera and using a wide range of software options, you can make it perfect. Moreover, for just a few cents per picture, you can print one on quality paper at a store kiosk or on your printer. Much like the flash drive storage medium, in order to save and file pictures for sharing on the web, technology has created memory cards.
