I am fully prepared for the next time I suffer a corrupted memory card!

Back in 2012, wireless connectivity was not yet a regular commodity on most cameras and there were special Wi-Fi memory cards that you could use to bring such connectivity to your camera.

To cut a long story short, I had one of these 'special' cards and ended up formatting it. Needless to say, the memory card didn’t like this very much at all and corrupted the files I took the next day on an important photoshoot. The card ended up in the trash and we had to reorganize a reshoot to take the images again. Thankfully Wi-Fi cards are a thing of the past, and any modern digital camera worth its salt comes with wireless connectivity built-in nowadays.
