CF cards vs. SD cards in an SD-to-CF adapter
Jul 10, 2012

I currently have 2 E-510s, each fitted with a 4GB CF card and a 2GB xD card. I shoot RAW.

I am about to go off to Canada and feel I will need greater storage capacity.

With an eye to future trends in storage, am I better to buy 2 SD-to-CF adapters and fit these with SD cards, rather than buying large-capacity CF cards? Intuitively, it seems so, but are there any drawbacks to the adaptor approach?

Thanks for any guidance
