How often has you memory card failed, so that you need a second card?

Just curious.


Don;t bother, those are just DPR/YouTube hypnotized people who probably have not even own a DSLR, let alone field experience.

Not at all. We’ve had 2-3 failures over the last few years, and we’re trying to figure out if we have an sd or cf going bad at the moment. The only people who think it doesn’t happen are those that havent had a failed card yet.

count me as one of them i still have my 2GB SanDesk CF cards that i purchased for my 5D (and that was the largest available at the time) in 2006 and still use them once in a while, they still work never have i had a memory card that failed! Oh, and that goes for my canon lenses and cameras, too!

So far, we’ve had a 50D fail twice with shutter failure, a 7D with shutter failure, a 7D2 with secondary mirror failure (it got a new shutter), a 35-350 that has locked up, and another 35-350 failed this year with an error at certain focal lengths. And a Sigma 24-70 that managed to fail with two different issues within 48 hours years ago.

That said, the first failed (and repaired) 7D2 is now at about 1.1m actuations today, with a global count of about 2.1-2.2m, and we have one 7D2 at 1.6m without a single failure but it’s backup is ready in my bag.

So it’s swings and roundabouts with reliability.
