| p.2 #10 · How Do You Store Multiple Memory Cards? |
The larger memory cards that are currently available make it a bit easier to manage with fewer cards, so it is going to always depend on if you are shooting with 8GB cards or 64GB cards. If you have a high frame rate camera like a 1D4 or 1DX, and are shooting RAW plus JPEG, and the event has a lot of action, you need plenty of cards. A motor sports race or an all day airshow are examples where a lot of shots are taken in order to get a smaller number of keepers. Even in landscape or travel situations, if you are exposure bracketing up to 5 frames per shot, those RAW's can add up too. And of course for a long trip lasting weeks, where you keep every image on the original card it was shot on as part of your backup plan, that can tax card ownership, as well as slots in your Pixel Pocket Rockets to keep them in.
I own about 20 cards with capacity sizes from 8GB to 32GB, and there are occasional times when I make use of most all of them. I can shoot up to 2,000 shots in one day at an air show, and I do not shoot as many frames as some people do. 10 frames per second can add up fast. And RAW is always needed, becaue the exposure is chalenging at air shows, and adjustment in post is almost allways required.
