Vivitar 50-in-1 Card Reader

What is this?

A 50-in-1 card reader.

Why did I buy it?

Way back in the day my first digital cameras used CompactFlash as the recording medium and the easiest way to transfer files to a computer was using a card reader like this one.

These days, every camera either runs off SD cards that conveniently slot into my Macbook Pro, or there is a way to wirelessly transfer the photos with ease. I don't need it often, but at least once a year it makes itself useful.
