    I only have a 4gb and a 2gb, and 2 batteries, I feel I could use at least another 6 or 8 gb, and another battery... :o

    I have (1) 4gb Ultra II, and (3) 2gb Ultra II's. I carry only two camera batteries (in my grip at all times). I carry 4 CR2 batteries (spares for my Poverty Wizards and Film Rebel) and 8 AA's for my flash (or to run my Camera if the batteries die (in the AA adapter for the grip).

    2 4g extreme IV's, 2 2G extreme IV's, and a 2G Ultra II SD from when I had my D80.

    I have one battery but it last for a long fucking time so :dunno:

    4 sets of 4xAA batteries, but that's just enough to cover the flashes; I need at least 1 more set. 2 batteries in the grip, and 1 4GB CF card.

    4gb, 2-1gb (all sandisk extreme II's), 1 lexar 4x
    2 canon bp511a

    no grip, added weight/space and i don't shoot enough to drain a 20d battery. i hear they go forever.

    keep a canon cg580 and there's a plug most everywhere i shoot :big grin:

    when i hit yosemite this summer i might get a budget backup battery so i can go all day/night nonstop shooting. :)

    Ditto. 20D with the battery grip is good for about 750 shots. My 1D MKII is good for about 1000 shots but I still carry a backup battery in case.

    For memory, just (1) 8gb and (2) 2 gb.

    I have 4-4GB cards, three camera batteries (and a battery grip that I don't use), and 30 or so rechargeable AA batteries. I'll probably pick up a portable HD/viewer sometime in the future.

    2 batteries for the 30D, but I've never actually run one all the way down while out shooting so that I had to change.

    2 4GB Lexar, 1 2GB adata (yeah, it's a piece of crap, but it's just a spare)

    i've got a total of 3 batteries (never needed the third, and only had to put in the second one once )
    i've got a 4 gig extreme III card that is my primary card, a 2 gig pny card that is almost as fast as the III, a 1 gig ultra II card, and a 4 gig card that i only break out if i absolutely have to because i've gotten card errors with it and don't trust it much anymore

    I really just need 2 more sets of those Eneloops and maybe keep those Canon batteries. The rest are junk.

    are the eneloops that much better than the rayovak hybrids? i have the hybrids in both of my flashes currently, but if the eneloops are that much better, i'm off to amazon to order some.


    edit - :rofl: pedobear ftw

    its pretty expensive on amazon right now. I think they are listed at 8.99 + 7 to ship :ugh: Ritz camera has them for 10 + tax.

    Just checked it out and one place called eek technology has them for $3.59 + 7.85 shipping. Might be worth it if you get multiple packs. Unsure if they charge tax.
