2x32 GB, 2x16 GB, 8-10 8 GB and maybe 4 or so 4 GB SanDisk Extreme III or better CF.
At least 4, maybe 6 8 GB, 2-3 4 GB and 8-10 2 GB SanDisk Ultra II or (anything 4 GB or larger) Extreme III or better SD/SDHC. Plus all the 2 GB and smaller cards that I accumulated when they were what was out there.

Well if you want to upgrade your HD storage for home, build yourself one of these :-)

Mine is a little smaller, it only has 24 - 2TB drives in 2 - 12 Drive RAID 6 arrays :-P
This is in addition to 2 - 5TB A-OPEN Home Servers, and a bunch of
external HD's.

LOL.. I wish I could finance that!! that would make me pee myself!

I'm aiming to have 4 3tB drives in my main PC.
My buddy and I backup our media, so if one of our PCs go up in flames, the other has all the TV/Movies from the other.

One day, I wouldn't mind having something like that - but so long as I have camera toys that need purchasing, I fear they'll win over a dozen 2tB drives (which are on sale for like $55 right now)

2 X 8gb SD (15mb/s)

I only shoot jpeg, so I get ~500 shots before I have to switch. Largest amount I've shot so far is ~350 in 2 days. I'm still a beginner.

Just a tip, shoot in RAW, when you get more skilled, you'll be happy you can go back and fix your current work.

and at 8gb and JPEG, you should be able to take more than 500 shots, no?

I own dozens of cards, because I've been using CF for around 15 years. But I tend not to take them all with me (especially the 8MB cards - can't fit a single raw on one of them). For I have a 32GB card that lives in the camera all of the time (no chance of losing the card) and a 16GB card in the bag/pocket just in case the big one fails (never had a failure in all those years). The 60D has a 16GB card in it and a 16GB spare.

Hi2all,

is anyone aware of any Firmware limitations of perhaps older Canon SLR models? I have a 50D and 350D (Rebel XT). I don't use the 350D very often any more and if I did, I wouldn't need anything above 4GB for an outing with it. I have 8GB for the 50D but I'd like to up it 32GB (they have up to 128GB for sale here but at just above €1000, not a candidate for me... :lol:).

But that's the question; can the 50D deal with say, 64GB w/o some recent FW update? I updated the 50D once two years back when I bought it but I tend to shy away from FW updates if & when possible... don't like the idea of "bricking" my gear... :-/

***EDIT*** apparently it's 2048GB ... :eek:

Clearly you've compiled enough to reach the ceiling stacked but my question to you is how much would you need for say, a weekly photo-outing? Are you the type (like me) to dump the photos onto a Notebook or other "hard" storage on a regular basis (every night / other night)?

Lol, my first Digitial was the Canon Coolpix 950 (external link), which came with an 8MB CF but I immediately "splurged" for a Lexar 64MB ($150 or so?) - not quite sure, that was just before the turn of the Millennium... :lol:

p.s. buy soon... (external link)

"The SanDisk comment continued. "There were no injuries to SanDisk employees based in Japan. SanDisk's current assessment is that there has been minimal immediate impact on wafer output due to the earthquake. SanDisk continues to assess the situation for any potential future impact that may arise from issues related to Japanese infrastructure and the supply chain."

The D60 and earlier models only support FAT16, and can't format cards in-camera to more than 2 GB in consequence. Up through around the 30D, IIRC (the 5D and 1D2n had firmware updates to correct this) the camera could only format cards to 8 GB capacity, but could use larger ones.

I back up nightly, but keep the original data on the cards as additional insurance. So for my last major photo trip, I took, and filled, around 100 GB (5D2, 7D and SX1 shooting RAW and A630) over a week.

Actually, what am I talking about, I do the same, lol :oops:. HDD crash, theft from the Hotel room or whatever, a backup is a must.

On that same line of thought, I'd prefer to have a week's work spread out over several cards, so even if I could afford a 128GB card, I'd just assume travel with 2~3 cards.

Speaking of which, I found a 16GB Sandisk for €74 and the 32GB for €138... at only a €10 difference, I wonder if it's not safer to go with two 16GB vs. only one 32GB. Although It's never happened to me, imagine if your "main" CF card dies on you out in the wilderness...

You're right!! I re-looked & they're 4 gb, not 8. Thanks for the jog.

Since moving on to raw, I found my 16Gb cards didn’t hack it and got filled way to soon. I shoot a fair bit of burst anyway. So I’ve moved on to 64Gb cards.

2 x 8GB and couple of 4gb and I carry my portable hard drive with me.

All I need. Although I like the sound of having a 64gb one but can't justify paying that much for a single card that i'll probably never fill.
