My pocket camera (Olympus Tough TG-5) will let me take pictures without a card. It has no internal memory so that means without a card my photos are not recorded.
This is not good engineering for someone like me who sometimes forgets to put the card back in after transferring photos to my computer. I could use direct transfer but that doesn’t work very well and requires more cables in addition to the spider web of cables already snaking out of my computer.
I spent the better part of the morning shooting without a card yesterday and didn’t discover it until the afternoon. Guess what I said when I discovered this…
(At least the shooting was fun.)
