Figuring out SD, SDHC and SDXC

SD (Secure Digital) cards are often the least expensive and most widely available type of memory card. Storage capacity starts at 1GB. While the lower price point of this older generation of memory cards may be tempting, more serious photographers often choose SDHC (Secured Digital – High Capacity) memory cards. These cards are available with storage capacity of up to 32 GB. With the higher capacity, photographers can capture more still photos and video.

Even more advanced than SDHC, the newer SDXC (Secure Digital – eXtended Capacity) card formats have the potential to one day provide capacity approaching 2048GB! Currently, the highest capacity available is 64GB SDXC which doubles the maximum amount of storage available on SDHC cards. The higher capacity means the photographer can spend time on capturing more action instead of changing memory cards.

Chris stop posting answers to questions nobody asked! If someone wants to know, they'll ask, not seek to find. That's what the forum is for, it's not a knowledge-base and people with questions don't use it as one. They just ask. That's how the social community works.

It looks like he's just copy/pasting other sites published material. Not good...
