Memory cards, chances are if you are a photographer you have a nice collection of these that you need to protect and keep with you when you go out on jobs. But let’s be real for a second, most of the time the carrying cases that we find for these are pretty ugly and many don’t even offer all that great of protection. VNTG8 is looking to change that with their new Vintage memory card case which may be the coolest new way for you to carry your cards around.

As you can see the idea behind the VNTG8 Memory Card case is a call back to the early days of motion picture film when rolls of 8mm film had to be toted around in order for movies to be made. These small rolls, which once held up to 200 feet of 8mm film, are being repurposed by VNTG8 with a special custom foam insert to convert them into stylish and uniquely vintage modern memory card holders.

The Vintage Memory Card Case will hold up to 48 memory cards, 6 standard sized SD slots will hold 3 SD cards each, and 6 Micro SD slots will hold up to 5 cards each. This makes the case incredibly convenient because you can have all your memory cards in the same well-protected place. That is one issue with many memory card holders today, they are for one type of card or if they allow multiple formats the fit of the slots is usually poorly planned.

This case looks awesome, will protect your memory cards with its metal exterior and foam interior, and is also a great use for old film canisters that keep them from collecting dust or being thrown out. Probably our only quip with these is that they are obviously much larger than your standard memory card case – however, we are sure that most of you could probably find some room for this in your camera bag.

This Kickstarter project is seeking $7,000 by the time its campaign ends on November 28th. So far the project is (as of this writing) just about to break the $1500 mark, so they can use your support. VNTG8 says your film canister memory card holders will be delivered by February 2018 should the project get funded.

You can get your hands on one of these for just $19 for your support of the project. We think it is pretty cool, and if you do as well you can find the project over on Kickstarter.
