    I have 2 512MB CF, I had recommand two cards instead of just one. For the following reasons

    1. if you lost one of the two, you don't lose all of your data (of course, you are more likely to lose one of the two cards. So, this has both pro and con)

    2. if you end up getting an image tank later, with two cards, you can backup one card while taking picture with another one. Or back up using your labtop if you already got one that is...

    :werd: about multiple cards actually...

    I recently had one flash card fail on me, it died while trying to read data off it and I thought all the images would be lost. (data recovery eventually got most of em but anyway).

    If you're shooting and your card stops working, or gets corrupted, you're screwed.. far better to have a spare to swap in and then you can try and recover the 1st card later rather than just trying to format it, and losing your shots while hoping that you can keep shooting on the same card without problems..

    I just ordered 2 512 SanDisk UltraII from Amazon but buying from Office Depot came out to $249 and some change.

    Friday I am getting my D70 at Best Buy unless my local camera store gets one in.


    Just so people know there have been quite a few Kingston CF card failures in the D70. If you do some searching on DPReview you can find the info.
