Memory Stick

Yet another standard, set by Sony but now also manufactured by others such as Lexar Media. The main drawback is that there are fewer cameras using this type of memory, although their number is gradually increasing. So if you buy another brand of camera later on, you may not be able to use your memory sticks. Memory sticks are more expensive per megabyte because there is less competition in the market. Although their capacity continues to increase, they tend to lag behind CompactFlash in terms of maximum capacity. Several variants exist such as Sony Memory Stick with Select Function, Sony Memory Stick Pro, Sony Memory Stick Duo, and Sony MagicGate.
