Re: Here's how I use folders

Voila! Instant organization.

It sounds like you don't download your exposures to the computer very frequently. I download my exposures to external storage or to my computer every day, after a shooting session. Also, with RAW format files in the 21Mbyte range, even a 4G storage card is only about 200 exposures .. that's usually about one shooting sessions work.

Given that, the use of folders is rarely of much real advantage. I use 2G flash media rather than 4G microdrives as I feel it is more reliable and less likely to suffer loss.
