On trips nightly back up to external hard drive AND either the phone memory or usb zip drive (save me at Easter Island when someone in the airlines stole the hard drive), and always format the
card when re-inserting. That's my story, sticking to it.
Travis, editing because I forgot to tell. 3 weeks ago in Yellowstone with the a9 a Lexar 128gb UHS-II 2000x failed. Would not read, write, could not format in camera or in two different laptops on the trip nor on the big machine when we got back. Lexar replaced already...never acknowledged why. Why mention this? Tony Northrup uses big cards for the whole trip. I'm not going to do that now, never did in fact, but def. not now.
On a trip, like my upcoming to JTNP, I have close to 400GB of cards going with me. I will shoot a new card every day, at the end of every day I load those to a hard drive and then store the card in my luggage in the clear plastic case...I don't write over them while on the road...and I don't use big cards, I don't like the 64GB cards I have, too big for me, I like the 32gb, and have a bunch of them. I have always been a fan of lots of cards to minimize any loss if one decides to go SNAFU on me....
Beautiful image Alfredo, great tones, very clean. I need to check out that tripod head you are using to do that.
How do you like PhotoLab, I got an email from them today about getting it now at a discount, was going to do that when I get home.

You can prefix each camera differently so that they name the files differently. It’s a setting in the menus. Regardless though you can tell Lightroom to display by capture time and it doesn’t matter what the file name is
Yeah, I have both cameras setup with prefixes, but the file numbering starts different with each new card, and yes LR will sort by capture time, but it would be nice if the camera didn't care which card was in, just keep the file numbers based in the camera, there are times when that would be helpful...for instance. On my last trip to the Smokies, two of my cards that were acquired at the same time, end up putting similar file numbers on, and at some point they were the same file numbers, so LR was not wanting to import duplicates. I tend to load all files into the folder and don't have these small cards numbered to remember which one I shot with first, and then once in the computer I rename them based on capture time, so if I am loading 6 cards from 2 cameras, I can rename them all at once...but not if the camera duplicates file names on different cards...
