Now that you have your brand new digital video recorder you’ll soon find that you have several SDHC cards floating around in your pockets. This is both inefficient and potentially detrimental to the media that you have stored. The solution is an SDHC memory card holder.
SDHC Memory Card Holders
The top five SDHC memory card holders all have one thing in common - they hold your data cards safely in one place. To choose the best one for yourself you have to consider where you’ll be taking your SDHC cards and how many you need to carry at one time.

This is an extremely tough, water-resistant, polycarbonate resin case that holds up to 8 SDHC cards. It was initially designed for professional photographers but would be great for anyone who films outdoor sporting events. The anti-shock case is rubber sealed and water proof to protect your memory cards even in the harshest of weather. For a mere $12.00 you can protect your memories (or work).

This SDHC card from Pelican lives up to the name by delivering a high quality case for a good price. This $16.00 case is both waterproof and shock resistant.

The cards are held snugly so that even a major jolt won’t cause them to come loose.
Memory Card Case
