All of our cameras have dual slots now. Starting last wedding season we use 2 64gb cards and put and entire event on them. We never let the camera out of sight. It is always in my hands. If I put it down to take a break or eat, the cards come out and in to my pocket. Same for my assistant.
Whats the likely hood of 2 cards failing at the same exact time? Very slim. Actually, we had one card go on us in the middle of the wedding. Not a problem, just popped 2 new cards in and kept shooting. My assistant downloaded the images from the card to our laptop to make sure we had backups of it and we went back on working full steam.
Some people wil cringe over this but seriously, how in the hell will 2 cards die at the same exact time? Its rare. Plus we get new cards every 15 events. We go through 15 events in a month, so always have fresh cards. technology has come a long way and I am confident we will never lose a gig.
But isnt that what we pay top $ for insurance? Just hope we never use it. Also, if something major were to happen, no matter what size cards we used, we would be screwed.
Now for type of cards. We get the fastest and top brand. Not whats on sale. This is one area where quality is better over quantity,
