View Full Version : Buying memory card on holiday?

12-10-2004, 07:27 AM
I've just bought a Sony Cybershot P150. I didn't buy an extra memory card because they where really pricy at the place where I bought the camera. I live in Sweden and I'm going to Thailand in January. My question is if it's possible to buy a memory card to my camera in Thailand. My girlfriend got this idea that a memory card from Thailand isn't compatible with a camera bought in europe. She says that it's basicly like the DVD-region thing. To me this sounds pretty silly but I can't just not listen to her, I don't like to sleep on the sofa. ;)

I don't know where she got this impression, I believe they are the same. DVD has region code restriction because there is copy right control there, buying an empty memory card is just like adding a SIMM memory into your PC, as soon as you are buying the correct format, you will be fine.
