      If you own a Sony camera or Photo Frame, the 4GB card is the perfect option for you!

      We have owned a couple of Sony Cyber Shot cameras over the last few years and started off with a much smaller 256MB card at the beginning. Gradually getting frustrated with the small amount of space and the continual need to upload photos to clean the card, we eventually bought the Sony 4GB card while on holiday in Italy.

      The card came in at around 20 Euro and we have happily used it for over a year since then. Like all Sony products, it is only compatible with Sony-based cameras, camcorders & will not necessarily work with all brands of photo frame.

      This 4GB card is a real treat whenever we go on holiday. Taking pictures with an 8MB camera at full resolution, we never even get close to maxing it out on a typical 2-week holiday. Having always brought our smaller card as a back up in the past, this is now not necessary as you can simply insert this card into your camera at the beginning and take it out at the end with hundreds and hundreds of photos. Indeed, it will typically take 800-1000 very high resolution photos which is more than you'll ever realistically need at any one time. This makes larger cards fairly pointless for the occasional holiday snapper like me.

      The card does not come with any protective casing except a standard converter to be able to use it with your computer. This converter is plastic and protects the card fairly well as well as making it easier to find. The converter itself, though, can be damaged if you're not careful. This isn't much of a problem, however, as the converters are supplied free with every card you purchase.

      After coming back from holiday, we frequently plug this card into our Sony Photo Frame and set it to flick through the photos. This compatibility is great, but it means that you are tied down to Sony devices if you wish to use this card in more than just your camera.

      Recommend to all!

      I purchased this in Dubai - got it for a bargain price, and it has not let me down. The internal memory on my Sony camera isnt great, but with this sized memory card i have never filled it up - and that is also with the highest resolution pictures being taken, on the lowest, i think im half way through the memory and it would still allow me to save over 9999 pictures, and as someone who loves taking pics that is great! it also means that i do not have to upload the pics and delete them immediately. i still have vids and pics saved from when i first purchased my camera (you can transfer files saved on the cam to the memory card) and edit, work on them. transfer is easy enough as you can connect with the leads or insert memory card into laptop or PC. it's just fantastic memory storage, and perfect for holidays where you may be taking lots of snaps/vids!

      Memory Stick is a small card for digital camera. Its like a flash drive n give extra memory space.

      I bought Sony cyber shot camera.. The Sony Cyber shot camera is very nice and perfect in most of its ways except there is low memory space in the camera. To solve this disadvantage I bought Sony 4 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo .

      Sony 4 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo is just inserted into the slot provided in the battery compartment. The 4 GB space is well enough to fill in some movie shots as well as loads of pictures at a time.

      Space : The 4 GB space is well enough and does not fill up quite easily. I have no problem till today for out of space. I shot more than 400 pictures and as well as more than 5 minutes video shots and still my had sufficient space available to carry on without any problem

      Installation: The card is slim and just slide in the slot with a click.. That's it. There is no complication or complex instructions to follow . The camera pick up the space without any prompt.

      Size : The card is very slim and slightly rectangular in size.

      Price : The price is under £6 when I bought.

      Availability: It is easily available at Sony store ,comet, curry, Amazon and other stores. I my self bought at Amazon as there were different space options to choose at decent price.

      Durability: The card is year old now and still does not show any sign or it never disturbed me till date.

      Quality: Sony is a brand and renowned for its quality. I am happy with the buy.

      Colour: Its charcoal black and the Sony is printed on the stick.

      I am really happy as I choose 4 instead of 2 GB as there was only slight difference in price between the two but a lot of difference between the storage space. The Sony is a name of quality and it paid the money off.
