- 13 Tips for Using and Caring for Memory Cards. Продлеваем жизнь флешке.
5. Avoid Filling Your Cards Completely
I have a friend who recently had an issue with a memory card. When he took it into the store he bought it from for advice they asked if he’d completely filled the card with images. When he said he had they told him that this could occasionally cause problems with some types of cards. I’d not heard this before and am a little skeptical about it myself — but it’s probably worth keeping in mind. I guess the advice is to regularly take images off your cards rather than doing it just when they are full. This is common sense anyway as it stops the heartbreak of losing gigabytes of images if you lose a card/camera or have a card error with a three quarters full memory card.

Way back in 1993, he shot a photograph of 7-year-old Dorsi Bonner dressed up as a clown for Family Fun Magazine. In 1996, Menuez turned the image over to RF distributor PhotoDisc, which is owned by Getty. In 2001, the photo ended up on the packaging of a Fuji disposable camera 2-pack. In 2004, Bonner showed up at a party where some friends had one of the Fuji 2-packs. «Isn’t that you?!?» they asked.
