How much memory do you use ?
When I went Digital about a year ago I bought a 512MB memory card with my camera thinking it would be plenty big enough for any eventuality.
I now have four 512MB cards and one 1GB card.
Its amazing how fast you can get through it when your out on a shoot.
How did I ever manage with film ?

One 1GB card. Living life on the edge...
I have 26 x 512mb compactflash cards, used to have a couple 1gb ones but they went hicky and I lost too many images so now smaller is better . If anything goes pear shaped I am comforted by knowing my loss is less.
2 x 516
3 x 256
1 x 128
If I had anymore I would be trigger-happy!!
Yip 26 of them Got them in Canada in January for a little over 9.00 each so just bought as many as the guy had left !!!!!!!!!! Kingston pro models so I reckon it was a fine deal.
I have 1 x 1Gb that my g/f bought for a Christmas present and 1 x 256Mb that I got free from Canon. I have only used the 256Mb once for an overrun at a wedding shoot. I can easily fir a couple of days shooting onto the 1Gb. Mainly because I take 10 mins out now and again to delete the crap. I also try not to be to repetative so I eventually run out of things to shoot or go off doing something else.
How much what?
A little over 38 years...
Camera's got plenty..... I've got none.....where am I ????
1 x 512mb, 3 x 256mb. And an 20gig imagetank g3. Only use the imagetank when shooting unrestricted gigs or motorsport meetings. Stick a card in the imagetank to download and another in the camera. When ones empty the other one is full...lol
1x2Gb (on its way)
2 x 1Gb
3 x 512Mb
320Gb at home
2 x 1Gb CF cards and a 30Gb Nikon Coolwalker, Im the same as Craigdonnelly, as one card is downloading to the coolwalker the other is in the camera being filled up.
If my memory serves me correctly, (sorry), 4 x 512Mb, 1 X 1Gb, 1 x 1Gb Microdrive, 1x 256Mb, and not forgetting the little cards that came with the cameras - 1 x 16Mb and 1 x 32Mb.
Like the other Dave, I'm happier with a few 512s than a larger card. I feel safer.
