Brilliant (a term meaning one who agrees with me)! This has been my practice 
wince I began with digital, with my Sony R1. When I made the move, I wasn't 
late to the party, but not a first adopter, I asked myself this question: How 
many photos are you willing to lose? At that time that possibility was far more 
likely than today. I chose, with a thirty year or so career as a pro, I defined 
this in numbers of rolls of film. I decided that I didn't want to be in a 
position to lose more than  two rolls. So I confined myself to two and four gig 
cards (cue peals of riotous laughter).. That meant that I bought quite a few of 
these cards as they were being closed out. During my days with the M9, the 
larger files menat I needed an eight gig card or two or three, so I sometimes 
find myself hurrying to download, but I am appalled to read of these people 
that are using giant hundreds of gig cards for still photos. I am aware of 
several that own but a single card, and will upgrade to a bigger one when 
possible as they wish all photos on one card

143 bucks for a card ?!!???

Solid gold I presume ...

I tend to use the ones I have, unless the camera will no longer accept it (no 
experience of that btw).

My only disappointment with a card came with one I had bought on a holiday in 
Barcelona and since I had run short of ammo I purchased the first one I found. 
Sandisk rescue software fortunately allowed me to repatriate the files and I 
dumped the faulty 20 bucks card right away. Now, from this experience, I never 
use large capacity cards. Rather, I tend to use, even smaller older ones, so 
that I wouldn’t lose all my eggs should the basket crash.
