Re: Memory card failure?

Memory cards are incredibly robust. I've been shooting digital professionally since 2002, thousands of assignments, hundreds of thousands of frames, without a single lost image. In the beginning I shot CF cards, but when dual slot cameras came along I shot CF + SD cards.

Even once I "retire" old cards because of increasing camera megapixels and read/write speeds, I use the old cards to store and transfer data between devices.

I always bought quality cards and formatted them in camera before every single assignment. Shrug. I'm sure someone out there has a horror story or two, but quality cards are very reliable.
