Essentials is a revamped series featuring products we’re currently lusting over in quick, bite-sized posts.
A few years ago, we reported on the VNTG8 SD Card Holders, and thankfully they’re much better in person. In fact, DPReview’s Chris Niccolls acknowledged how wonderful they are when we last saw each other in person. The big story behind the VNTG8 SD Card Holders has to do with an issue in the world overall: recycling. Created by Jordan Kirkham, these SD card holders represent the new American entrepreneurial spirit while giving a nod to understanding a big part of visual imagery’s past. In this particular story, the retro aesthetic hails from an affinity for cinematic film. Lots of old film cases simply went to the wayside after being used. But with the VNTG8 SD Card Holder, they are repurposed in a really nice way. Through this process they’re given a sort of rebirth.
