    Hi,

    Not if you can afford a Canon 1Ds (> $7500 without lens).

    Exactly - Why put all your eggs in one basket. I carry a few 256 cards,
    that's all.

    True, for now, but the price difference might not be significant by the
    end of the year. Amazing what competition can do to pricing.

    Hi,
    It really depends on the type of shooting you do and what camera you have.

    If you shoot 5-6 MP in RAW or TIFF format, 256 MB does not give you a lot of
    pictures per card and some people don't like to stop shooting just to swap
    cards.
    I remember how agravating it was to take film out and insert a new roll in the
    middle of action shooting.

    Not much has been said on this newsgroup but I imagine that for underwater
    phtography digital must be heaven. With a high capacity card you can shoot
    until the batteries go dead and some of the proprietary batteries last a long
    time.

    Now there is an application where changing batteries or cards is a real
    imposition.
