    I use SanDisk extreme II's. I like to shoot with a smaller card though (3 x 2 GBs and 1 x 4 GB). That way, if something happens, I'm only out a few images. :bigthumb:

    I'm exactly the same about multiple smaller cards, way too paranoid just to have a single huge card!

    you mean ultra II
    then it goes extreme III and IV


    that same analogy has been used since we were shooting with 256's. But in reality, fr more images are lost when the card is physically damaged, stolen or lost, then from it going bad. And when a card goes bad, or you delete, reformat etc, there is awesome recovery software available.

    I've had an 8GB SanDisk extreme III in my D2H for well over a year now, and have been quite happy with it.
