Choosing the Right Size Memory Card

Flash memory cards have been increasing in size and are now available up to 32 GB. I recommend using 2—8 GB cards. Why? The memory card is likely to be the first place where you can encounter a problem. Any failure with the card can wreck a photo shoot. It's wise to match the memory card to the RAW file size produced by the camera. In my early digital days I used to believe that more storage on a card was better until it was pointed out to me that a card can corrupt at any time for a variety of reasons. Better to loose a few hundred RAW files from a 4 GB card than thousands from a 32 GB. It's been likened to putting all of your 'digital eggs' into one basket. The key is not to have too many images on one card in case of failure.
