Creative Use for Memory Card Wallets

By January 14, 2011Products

I have a couple memory card wallets laying around that I would love to put to good use.

I remember when I discovered my first Lowepro memory card wallet tucked inside a Classified 200 AW shoulder bag. I thought to myself, “Oh, this is neat. What should I do with it?” I didn’t really want to store my CF cards inside of it, but it seemed too cool not to use for something.

As a coincidence, recently, one of my photographer friends shared a video with me about his Photographer’s Survival Kit. These little kits contain a handful of essentials that come in handy when you’re shooting out in the field. As it worked out, my friend Stefan used a Lowepro memory card wallet to house his survival kit. It’s really clever. You might want to check out this short video that he made.

Slick, isn’t it? If you come up with something clever for these card wallets, be sure to post a comment to share with others.
