Well after about 7 long years with my trusty Xsi, I'm finally able to upgrade to my dream camera, the 6D. She's already ordered and will be here by Wed. I'm so happy guys! You have no idea! I never thought I would ever able to afford a camera like this. And being a street and portrait photographer, I know I will love it. I only have my nifty fifty lens to pair with it for now until I can get a real quality lens, but I have seen some beautiful photos being taken with this and the 6D, so I have hope.

One question tho. Can I use my old SD card from my Xsi? It's a Sandisk Ultra SDHC 16gb card.

Thanks guys. And I can't wait to start posting here with everybody.

Why would you want to use an old card? You can get a Sony 32gb Class 10 UHS-1 card on Amazon for under $10

You should be fine to use your old cards. Others will say old cards are subject to being corrupted, but I have news for you, so are new cards. I have been using the same cards for almost three years and see no need to have new ones. Yes at some point they will likely go south, but then I will just buy new ones then.

He didn't say "cards" - he said "card". He also said "It's a..."

Do people actually reuse cards anymore?

Why would you not reuse a card if it is still functional? It is kind of like buying a new game system, but not reusing the controllers because they are from the old system. I don't quite get why it seems to bother you so much.
The answer is still technically, yes the old cards can still be used. If they are not fast enough, or not large enough, then by all means buy new cards for the new camera. I did reuse my memory cards for my 7D2 when I bought it, so I don't see the big deal.

I have a bunch of old cards, almost 10 years old and I still use them.

I just posted to another thread on this forum where a photographer downloaded his SD card to his usual system, verified that everything was OK, and then deleted the photo's from his card. He then had a computer/Lightroom malfunction and lost his data. This was for a professional PAYING job. He may have to tell the client he lost his entire photoshoot.

Or, as a pro, he could have just used a new card (under $10) and would have been safe.

My wife and I are both amateurs/enthusiasts. We never reformat our cards. And we have a different card for each day of our trips. Just so there is no chance we lose anything. I guess if you save multiple copies of the unedited RAWs some place you will be OK. Computer issues are too prevalent for me to rely on them exclusively. What is the downside of using a new card? They are very cheap, and storage options for the cards are also very cheap.

So you have a new card for every job? The situation you posted above about losing the data due to the computer messing up was not caused by the card. Multiple back ups should be part of any paying job. But the card is irrelevant in your example. The card did not fail the data was there, the card was formatted and then the data was corrupted.
I guess will have to just agree to disagree with this one. I don't see the need for a new card for every job, because then you would have cards all over the place and soon would be dealing with storage issues and lost cards vs back up issues.

I've used the same SD cards for the longest time and haven't run into issues. I do have a few, about 6 or so, which I rotate. This makes it so I keep files on there a bit longer in case something goes wrong. I have 1TB on my laptop and try to do Time Machine backups often so I have two copies. I don't have paid gigs but I think that it'd be the same though. Just not use that card until I delivered.

Hi Ron,

So you have a new card for every job?

I'm just an amateur/enthusiast - so I don't really have a photography "job". But when my wife and I go on our trips to do our travel photography each of us has a new SD card for EACH DAY of the trip. So for a 10 day trip, we take 20 cards. Every night we charge the batteries and format a NEW card for the next day. We never delete anything on our cards. Now not everyone will do this, but for a PAYING JOB, why would you ever delete your originals?

The situation you posted above about losing the data due to the computer messing up was not caused by the card. Multiple back ups should be part of any paying job. But the card is irrelevant in your example. The card did not fail the data was there, the card was formatted and then the data was corrupted.

As you correctly pointed out, his card did not fail. Which makes my point for me! If he didn't reformat the card he would still have the data! His computer could explode and he would still have the data - because the card would survive and the data would still be on the card.

I don't see the need for a new card for every job, because then you would have cards all over the place and soon would be dealing with storage issues and lost cards vs back up issues.

We use these: http://www.amazon.com …&keywords=SD+ca​rd+storage (external link) Its not really an issue.

If you spend 10 dollars on an SD card and take 20 cards, that's 200 dollars on cards for your 10 day trip...
I hope you don't go away too often :eek:

There's nothing wrong with using your old cards and nothing wrong with wiping your card after downloading your images...just make sure everything is backed up before wiping the card....common sense..

I look at SD cards like rolls of film - its just that I can get 1000 images per roll. :) But I wouldn't keep shooting the same roll of film over and over . ;)

When you add up the cost of Cameras, Lenses, Flights, Hotels, Meals etc... $200 for cards is cheap!

But the man in my example DID back his up. But the computer crashed and his photos for a PAYING JOB were lost.
