I've had two identical cheap Transcend cards fail in my D700, cards that works fine in my 40D/7D. The higher quality pro grade Transcend cards have been fine in every camera.

I haven't had a Sandisk card fail yet.

I bring about 100 gigs to weddings, just to be safe. Never can have too much memory.

I'd say you're very well covered. Just make sure you have some sort of backup spare. It doesn't have to be 32G necessarily - just something to pop in if you have problems, which should be quite rare.

Presently I use 16gb and on occasions they fill. I certainly would use 32gb only if its quality was excellent. I quite like the idea of not having to mess around with full cards. I fear that I could lose one. If it's in the camera it's safe.

I did have a card fail once only but managed to recover all the files.

If you shoot JPEGS, yes. 32GB is enough. I personally use Photofast G-Monster 32GBs..

There's nothing quite like using a small unknown brand when shooting an important event ;)

To be fair I bought a few 8GB cards from them a few years back. Tried them out for a few months and then used them properly for well over a year. Never had an issue.

Hi Guys,

For a wedding do you think 32G is good enough?

Wouldnt it be better having multiple say 8 or 16gb cards?

Why would you want to shoot the whole wedding on only one card?

Are we going to get into this debate ... again... for the 50 millionth time?

I use about 50-60GB on average. I primarily use six 16GB cards but have six 8GB cards in my spare bag just in case.

I can appreciate the "belt and suspenders" insurance, but why would you say this? Stick to name brands and you should do fine. As others have said, I'd spread things across a couple of cards.

I've known of Sandisk cards to fall over and die. With weddings I'd rather not take the chance, even the slightest one. What's to say the camera won't cause the card to fail?

If they were that safe Canon and Nikon wouldn't put dual card slots in their cameras.

I'll agree this is a nice feature and I wouldn't mind if both of my 5D's had it....it works - but what percentage of Nikon and Canon bodies have this? It's more marketting and they know people will pay a higher price to get it.
