I don't need a second slot - I have only had one corrupted card in my Nikon ownership.

Most people never had change a flat tyre themselves. But if you try to sell a car without a spare tyre, guess what will happen?

Mine doesn't have a spare. It takes run-flats.

comparable 'run flat' type of memory card'

so, with your tyres, there is your insurance against failure. everyone will thank you for it.. and rightly so

Everyone will thank me for using run-flats? No-one has so far. Or everyone will thank me for using dual card slots? Ditto.

they are tested in an emergency situation.... but if and when you do need the tyres to 'stay on the rim' for instance, then perhaps the yourself or your passengers that didn't get killed. 'might' show some appreciation, then?

I think your analogy is fine.

Oh yes, I can see why the analogy makes sense now. If my compact flash card fails the people I was shooting will be relieved they were not killed.

Silly me.

you said it...

your determination to 'not' see the advantage of two lots is admirable.

I presume you are intelligent enough to see that no one related the 'two slot' facility, to prevention of death?

However people make a lot of their photographic memories.. especially events like weddings. These are tied up with emotional responses like 'these mean the world to me'. It's a figure of speech of course but shows the emotional attachment to them either physically or mentally.

In the scheme of things like world hunger and civil war, it might be viewed as pathetic.

But.. as someone has already mentioned... Have you ever had to deal with the brides mother over a failed shoot?

peace

It was a pointless analogy in the first place.

I don't let that influence which camera I use though.
