When SD became the norm I went to "single use" because the cards are so cheap.

Are you saying that you use a card and keep it when full instead of formatting it for reuse?

Yes. A 64GB card holds 1500 files, and costs less than it used to cost me to buy a 36-exposure roll of film and get it processed (without scaling that for the change in prices or my income since I was shooting lots of film). The cost of storage for my shoots is much less than the cost of driving to the shoot.

My last 128 gb card cost me £40, my 4tb hard drive cost £140 and can store the equivalent of just over 30 128gb cards and that would cost over £1200. Obviously it's your choice but it doesn't seem very economic or convenient to me.

My back up of last resort is the card I shot on.

(I still have 4GB cards from c. 2008 although I'm not relying on them working!)
