Elecom SDHC cards now in waterproof variant

While I can’t think of any gadget that would actually withstand water in its memory card slot, these new waterproof SD cards from Elecom would be good accessories for those that use their gear out on the deep blue sea — if they ever make it to our shores, that is. (Elecom is a Japanese company.)

No price yet, but they’ll certainly be much more expensive than a regular card. Perhaps more expensive than a regular card and a waterproof case!

    Aren’t most memory cards waterproof or at least water resistant? I know that I’ve ran one or two through the wash and you always hear stories of people losing cameras to the sea only to be found by someone who is able to download the photos and find them later.

    Yeah, this isn’t an ugrade. They’re just selling a feature as an upgrade. SSD Cards are already waterproof.

    Maybe they made the sticker waterproof, because that’s the only problem I have with mine. It’s been through the wash a dozen times, and all Ive lost is the paper label on it. With this new waterproof label, no longer will you have to guess at the capacity of SD cards that have gone through the wash!
    Hopefully these geniuses don’t beat me to it, but I’m creating a waterproof water bottle right now, it’s gonna make me rich!

    sweet… now if they can just make waterproof batteries, and a time machine, I can grab one of these and go back in time to october and salvage my underwater camera and all the photos on it that a grain of sand ruined by letting water past the O-ring.
