ThinkTank Pixel PocketRocket (external link). Holds 10 cards and has a clip so you don't lose it as easily.

+1 more for the Think Tank pixel pockets. They hold a lot and are very compact.

I actually have that as well; I fill a couple of the CF slots with SD-CF adapters (holding SD cards) for versatility.

^ good idea if you have more than 3 SDs. I avoid them like the plague, but I do have ~3.

My A620 and A630, as well as my wife's SD600 (and the 1D3) use SD or SDHC.

Since I have each CF paired with an SD/SDHC, I put them in pairs inside little plastic baggies when empty & then toss 'em loose in a velcro-closed chestvest pocket when filled. They're numbered so I can keep them matched up...especially after they've been used.

Yeah, I hear you Jon. Both my P&Ss use them still and I picked up my first for my 1DmII... But I've also broken 3 SDs, so like I said, I avoid them whenever possible. But it's inevitable that I end up needed a few.

Currnetly have 5 2gig cards one in camera 4 in black plastic case. Empty cards face lable out and up full cards label in and card rightside up. I turn cards upside down after downloading to laptop (if I have it with me). Or at least that is the Idea sometimes in heat of changing cards I forget. Only thing I don't like is black plastic. I am thinking of painting it some hard to miss color like caution yellow or bright red something that would be hard to miss If I put it down. John
