Can you believe that this card will store 45,000 (yes, THOUSAND) jpeg images shot with a 6 megapixel camera. Gosh, I could shoot some serious candids at a wedding with that many shots available!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Good day!

Mike

I've heard 1 story about images lost from a card of a wedding. YIKES!

Anyone ever worry about shooting on digital for this reason? Or putting SO MANY eggs in one basket?

I would rather have several 2 gig Lexar 40x speed CF cards just in case. You can load the CF cards on a pocket storage device. I have never had any problems with Lexar. I did have one CF card from a off brand company go bad. Lexar has a lifetime guarantee.

I have had weddings where the lab lost one or more rolls of the film, etc. This and many other film horror stories. I've never lost any digital photos yet. I generally use several cards, so if one did go bad, I'd still have photos. However, with modern recovery software you can usually get the photos off a card that has problems. I use a laptop in the field to copy the photos off to during the shoot. I still leave them on the cards, but am backing them up to the laptop.
Cheers,
rfs

I've had bad pictures on a Compact Flash but only because of the batteries getting very low. The camera cut off on me mid picture and I lost a few pix at the end of the card. Other than that have had no problems.

Indeed! I shot a wedding two years ago; about 15 rolls of film. I sent one batch, about 8 rolls, to the lab. I didn't send the rest because I wasn't quite ready at the time. Well, lo and behold, I get a letter from the lab about a week or so later with small pieces of several negatives. The letter said that they regretted to inform me that their machine ate ALL of my film and that these bits and pieces were all that was left. I went right through the roof. Fortunately I hadn't sent the other 7 rolls and was able to provide some images for the bride and groom. Unfortunately, the rolls destroyed contained the pictures of all the family members that were at the wedding whom the B&G said they would probably never see alive again after the wedding. I felt lower than whale s**t at the bottom of the Marianus Trench. The bride and groom were very gracious and just said, "Schtuff happens" and were content to take what I could provide them without another word about it. I was seeing visions of lawsuits dancing in my head. I tried to compensate them by throwing in other things at no cost and they just said it wasn't necessary. I still see that couple to this day and they are still recommending me to everyone. Go figure.

That's my horror story with film. I can see the same potential with digital and I would not put all my eggs in one basket; that much is certain.

Thanks for bringing up a valid point for all to consider; digital or film.

Good day!

Mike

By the way, that's an awesome image!! I love how you did that.

Are you sure your math is right? 6 megapixel jpeg is 1.5-2 megabytes a 4gb is ~4,000 megabytes. That's 2,000-3,000 images by my calculation. Where did you get 45,000? It's still alot though, what do these go for?

I pulled the number out of the advertisement in the back of my latest Studio Photography and Design Magazine (pg. 48). I didn't really sit down and do the math myself so I can't speak to the validity of the number. The ad didn't go into the technical details of how it came up with this number. Maybe it depends upon the mode you select on your camera. The ad also said that this card can store up to 600 RAW images. Whatever the case may be, whether it's 45,000 or 3000, that's a lot of pictures and a lot of shooting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I don't know the price but my guess would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $1300-$1500. I may be way off but I know the 2GB version sells for around $900, if memory serves.

Good day sir!

Mike
