| p.1 #5 · p.1 #5 · How big and how fast (write speed) of a CF card do you really need? |
I realize that this is always a possibility, but I know of a lot of photographers, even pro photogs such as Arthur Morris who have never lost an image, and find it's more of a hassle to keep changing smaller capacity cards in the remote chance they'll lose some images if they use larger cards. I also don't think that 16 or 32 GB cards are all that big, esp if shooting RAW.
Of course everyone has their own opinion, and I appreciate the warning.
I'd also be downloading the images after each shoot most likely but it would still be nice to have the capacity in case I need it. I've been known to shoot a brick of film in one session and still wish I had more, (When I shot film) so I would hate to run out, esp if it's an important session. I would also hate to run out of space on the card in the middle of the session right when a "once in a lifetime" shot came up. And you know that is exactly when it would happen. Murphy's Law!! .
Also two 16 GB or 32 GB cards are a lot less expensive than 4/8 or 2/4 4 GB or 8 GB cards respectively. Plus it's probably easier to lose or misplace one of the many smaller capacity cards than it is to lose or misplace just 1 or 2 of the larger capacity cards.
But again, everyone has their own feeling, and as I mentioned, I appreciate your input.
Sorry about your lost images.
