Find The Right Flash Storage Capacity For Your Computer, Camera And Mobile

Flash drives as we all know are available as USB sticks, camera memory, and mobile memory cards to store, transfer and backup digital files from host devices like computers, cameras and mobile phones.

It is possible to store beyond 1TB (around 1000+ GB) data on a flash drive. But before determining what storage space we need for our camera, mobile memory card or for that matter a USB stick, it is important to decide what kind of data will be stored on it and its core application.

The following tables, shared by Kingston Technology on its community site gives an understanding of how much storage is needed for storing your photos, videos and data files.

** Approximate number of JPEG (compressed file) pictures. JPEG file sizes vary based upon camera model and internal file size and compression settings, as well as user-selected resolution and compression mode settings. In addition, JPEG compression will result in different file sizes based upon picture complexity. Some host devices may not support all of the Flash storage capacities listed. Consult your device’s owner’s manual for supported capacities. Productspecifications subject to change without notice.

 

*** Actual recording time will vary based upon camera model, selected resolution, compression settings and the content being recorded. Some host devices may not support all of the Flash storage capacities listed. Consult your device’s owner’s manual for supported capacities.
