There are a few very important tasks associated with using digital camera. The most important is of course capturing a beautiful photograph. The next most important task is that of transferring this image somewhere from where it can be printed. The most suitable place is hence computer. Now, here comes another area of importance that needs to be analyzed and sufficient knowledge is required to be imparted to users to make ample use of such an important feature. This discussion is thus generally focused upon this mechanism to transfer digital camera images to computer, and various types of such a transfer. Looking from a very simple point of view, there are two methods for transferring digital camera images to computer; they are firstly by attaching digital camera directly to computer (a process that is popularly called tethering) and secondly by use of a memory card reader.
In present world most digital cameras are endowed with arrangements for a comparatively nippy USB connection. USB is basically an interface between a computer and peripheral devices like keyboards, telephones, scanners, and printers. In current case this peripheral device is digital camera. This USB feature enables computer to be directly connected to digital camera and transfer images via USB port present in computer itself also. Many of computer operating systems (like Windows XP) have features for in-built tethering support for this purpose solely. One major problem of this feature of tethering is that it consumes a huge amount of power from batteries. For this reason, many of digital cameras are provided with AC adapter that powers camera. The appropriate software installed within computer and digital cameras provides entire task for making a successful transfer of images from digital camera to computer.

The digital camera is essentially a computer-based device, whose core is controlled by computer. And as a result photographs are stored in a location called memory. Now, this concept is or paramount importance in discussing digital camera. Strictly speaking, digital camera memory is where digital pictures are stored inside camera. The digital camera memory is an essential and often a very neglected and overlooked section of equipments for digital photography and camera. There are many types of memory available for digital cameras, and it is a good practice to mull over what type of memory a camera uses before buying a digital camera. This discussing is aimed in revealing some of this relevant information!
Knowledge of digital camera memory is very essential for using such a camera and capturing photographs. The most common form of such memory is a memory card. These are reusable, have a limited capacity and can always be installed when required in excess. A person needs to be well informed about enough memory available for taking photographs. And accordingly make arrangements. Generally, digital cameras come available with low capacity memory cards, and it is a wise purchase to acquire higher capacity memory cards in order to budget for an additional card for later use.
With increment of a camera mega pixel counts, it becomes essential to use higher capacity memory cards. Some of small sized cards are for example 64 megabyte cards and larger ones are like 1-gigabyte cards or combinations of megabyte cards. Digital camera memory is available in many shapes and facade depending on type of digital camera that is being used and even and number of pictures that are required to be stored in digital camera memory. These different types of memory are solely dependant upon requirements of digital camera, like for example a camera using compact flash type 1, requires use of compact flash type 1 digital camera memory. Other examples of types of digital camera memory are Compact Flash Digital Camera Memory. It is suitable for rugged and rough handling and is also resilient for incessant usage. This is also small in size to assist better handling and flexibility. What more, it is cheap and anyone can afford it!
