Camera Question

August 11th, 2008at 09:08pm Posted by Eli

Now that flash memory is dirty cheap, why is it that digital cameras still have roughly the same dinky amount of onboard memory that they did when they first came out?

I can get a ridiculously tiny 1GB sliver of MicroSD memory for less than five bucks, so why can’t the camera makers just stick some in there in place of the useless 32MB cards that are in there now?  Probably 90 to 99% of digital camera users would never need to buy a card for their cameras if they had a gig of built-in memory.

Or is that actually the reason?  Do the camera companies have some kind of secret arrangement with the flash memory companies?
