At one time, internal memory was all you had... for consumer or pro cameras...

I’m not a great fan as it generally requires a cord to get images off the camera, so it messes up my workflow...
I will rephrase my comment - the first digital cameras I had any intimate awareness of were
(1) a Nikon P&S my mother gave me in summer 2005 to get me interested in digital photography
(2) a Canon P&S we gave our daughter in December 2005 before she made a trip to England

Each of them had a small internal memory - enough to hold 2 or 3 photos - and each could hold a standard {for the time} SD card. Each is now long gone - I don't remember any option in either to transfer photos between the two memories. I viewed the internal memory the same way I viewed the built-in flash ..... something for a true amateur, someone who didn't need greater capability.

Adding a periscope on top would be nice.
Just turn your camera upside down.
