Made In The U.S.A.

High-Tech Digital Camera Equipment Made In The USA

Some of you may know that I moonlight as a camera “expert.” In researching a recent story about digital camera media cards (those little wafers of digital “film” that you put in your cameras these days) I learned that one of them, a brand with a fairly strong reputation, is actually proudly Made In The USA.

Hoodman, a company of digital camera gadgets and accessories, is based in Torrance, California. Presumably its MITUSA Raw CF cards are made nearby? They’re short on details, but they do clearly claim MITUSA status. I have no idea about the raw materials going into these Raw cards, but I’m pretty impressed that I can buy brand new flash media storage for all my imported cameras.


  1. Looks like a great product for irreplaceable vacation photos. It’s not fun to loose those photos. Trust me.

    For the Rest of us, Eye-Fi makes their cards in the US. I assume to protect their wonderful invention. Transmit photos over wifi from your camera, pure genius. (Note the included adapter is not MITUSA 😦 )
