Flash memory is a type of non-volatile storage. It keeps the data it stores without a constant power flow which makes it great for devices such as cameras.

Flash Memory makes use of electrical effects to store data. It's a solid state technology because it is based on a silicon crystal slice and metal layers. There are no moving parts to flash memory.

Flash is very durable and will not break when dropped or exposed to heat. Subsequently, Flash Memory will begin to fail... if overwritten roughly a million times.
