1Gb, 2Gb, 4Gb, 8Gb more?

My card carrier handles 16 cards, which suits me fine.

Sometimes I shoot and need to turn around the images fast while shooting something else... and I'll be cycling several cards all day long. Smaller tends to be practical for these.

Sometimes I shoot events where I may want to shoot many hundreds of images...up to a thousand or so before a logical break for card swapping occurs... Larger is practical here.

Sometimes I encounter a DAD with a CAMERA at a wedding who is bragging about his camera and the 32Gb or 64Gb card...and I just smile... those are too large ...for my needs... currently.

Only YOU can determine what is right for YOU, for YOUR photography needs and budget.
(4 - 8Gb cards may be much more sensible and affordable than 1 32Gb card)
