I use 4's and 8's, all numbered. Yeah, it is highly unlikely a card will fail, or i'll lose one, but why take a chance chance? I'd rather swap cards a few times during the day than hsve to try and explain where all the images on a 32gb card are IF it should fail or get lost.

Where do you put your cards when they are full?

in a wallet sized memory card case. it's the only thing i carry with me other than camera. Face up cards are empty and ready to use, face down i know they are already used.

What happens if you loose that wallet? Sounds like placing all of your eggs in one basket...

Congrats on the new baby by the way!

I remain nervous until I have them home and backed up on our server as well as on the main computer. I really want to get a couple of external hard drives so I can have triplicate backups (worked in graphic design for years, I have seen everything fail) but there are a few other expenses that trump that need right now (like fixing the 5d that failed *sigh*)


This is my camera, there are many like it, but this one is mine.

For one wedding? Is this you and an assistant or just you? Because that's about 8000 images (assuming you're shooting RAW only) and that's just... well... insane! Editing must take you forever!

Video and Photography - Two camera's and sometimes 3. Currently had back to back weddings so I couldn't keep my cards as backup either. One wedding is about 150 gb, then when Final cut pro gets a hold of it.....triple that

Ah! Video makes sense. If I ever get into video I think I'd switch to 32 gigs as well.

I've used my cards enough times without any problems to not have any jitters about whether or not the memory has been corrupted when I go to download them. Now if I set my cards near a giant magnet and dropped them in water and ran over them with my car...then maybe.

I used to only use lots of 4GB cards, but recently added a couple 8GB and 16GB cards. My position used to be pretty strong in favor of the "don't keep all your eggs in one basket" philosophy, but I've softened my approach on that quite a bit. In case you are interested, here's why:

If memory gets corrupted it rarely if ever gets entirely corrupted. Memory is arranged in blocks within each card, so a data corruption is typically isolated to one section of a card's memory. So even with a 16GB card if one section of a block were to get corrupted, it wouldn't mean that I'd lose everything on that card. Another thing to consider - let's say I want to take 64GB of cards to a wedding. I can take (4)x16GB cards or (16)x4GB cards or some other combination. The more cards I own, the more I am increasing my odds of getting a bad one, right? It's also nice not to have to change cards so often, or carry as many around.

I still carry around a variety of CF card sizes, but I'm not as fanatical about avoiding larger capacity cards anymore. I've also started capturing some HD video clips for the brides as little bonus "extras" on the final DVD we deliver to them. The extra capacity on the cards is nice for this.

My only worry with 16 gigabytes is that when does go bad, there's $70-$100 down the drain, if a 4 gigabyte card goes it's only $25 or so. On the other hand, I recently bought just one, and it was realllllllly nice to not have to worry that my card would fill up in the middle of the vows.

Wow, memory is cheap where you are from. I cant get a decent 4gb card for less then $100 here.
