I have multiple cards so I always just put one in when taking the other out.

The problem with that approach is that it screws up the file numbering.

I always check for my Cf card wallet to make sure it is in my bag and I don't leave without the bag. If taking an abreviated portion of my kit I do it from the trunk of the car.

It has never happened to me. My wife's Pentax K20D/gripped has a compatment built in for an extra memory card. Great feature. Wish Canon had that.

That is a smart feature!

I went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival (about 45 minute drive) with my camera body, 2 lenses, extra batteries ....and NO CF card. Now, I make sure both of my camera bags have one stuffed inside an inner pocket.

Carry a spare in your wallet?
Since you need to carry your license on you when you're driving, it is foolproof!

I only did this once, I was far from the house too :( Now when I import pics to my laptop I use the cable that came with my camera, the one with a USB plug on one end and the plug shaped like a trapezium on the other. Now my CF card never leaves my camera.

There are some people who prefer to use the camera-generated file numbers to track shutter actuations or as a suffix to their final file names. Switching CF cards in non-1D series bodies messes up the numbering sequence since the camera will renumber from the last file on that particular card.

Google the phrase "cf card AND canon file numbering" and you'll find lots on information. See this thread for example: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=250432
Admittedly, its not that big a deal for me since I rename my files anyway but for some people maintaining the sequence is important.

If you have more than one card, you should never be without one? I have 3 cards, so one is in the camera, one is in the bag, and one can be (hypothetically) left in the card reader at home


Ever so happy with my 1D classic

I have so many CF cards that I keep older ones ( spares ) in my vehicles just for this reason.

A 4GB and a 2GB in each car.

Not much in the way of storage, but when you need something and no store is around anything is better than nothing.

On the other hand, CF cards are so common these days you can buy them in drugstores!.

BIGGER PROBLEM FOR ME: When I get my destination and pop in a CF card and it has images, I have to try and remember if I offloaded them or not.
