    Bring "all" my camera equipment, I wanted to have a full day of shooting so I made sure to take all the pics off the mem card beforehand and charge up the battery nice. I see some cool things, put the camera to my eye, click click click, look down, no CF card... instantly I'm transported back to my office where I see my fresh clean CF card sitting in the reader. ugh.

    I did that several weeks ago when my family went to the philly zoo. I did however, have an additional card that I had in my bag. All the others were at home on my desk

    it sucks. especially cause I clicked this thread hoping to see some inbred, hillbilly carnie folk

    I've done that before. I've also forgotten to take the battery out of the charger and taken the camera out without it.

    Yep, i ALWAYS keep a spare card that isn't in normal rotation in a separate section of my bag. Even if it's a cheapo 256, at least you can get a few shots and delete the bad ones in-camera.
