Big enough to now hold the complete syzygybases, small enough to fit in you phone. :D

And I thought that when the 64GB card came out that it was insane, tech just keeps marching forward.

The manual of my HP 945 camera states that it only supports SD cards up to 2 GB, but has been tested by HP with no more than 512 MB. That is the same thing as this micro SD? I believe the standard card is just 32 MB. But I am happy with my camera! Even if it can only store 11 frames or pictures in full resolution, without compression if I don't change the memory card. This was 'state of the art' at least for not too expensive compact cameras, not single lens reflex cameras, just ten years ago, in 2004.

The smallest SD cards, not micro SD they sell at my local computer store are 4 GB. My camera does not support them at least that's what the manual says... Could I still use them as 2 GB cards? For just 5€ you have 8 GB storage already from Adata so if that is just 2 GB it is still not expensive. But will the camera read it?

are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

I don't think any phone can actually read SD cards anywhere near that fast, so it may make sense to save some money and get slower cards!
