    Droolable, but sorry. I'm not going to see a thousand photos die instantly and I have to reshoot a thousand memories.

    Thanks ur support! If more ppl willing to pay deposit for MO, I have more confidence to bargain with supplier. Wait next week I get my new camera then start MO.

    I prefer one memory carry all picture coz lazy to change card. So far nvm heard any CF/SD defect (except micro-drive). Do you have any bad experience on any brand defect problem?

    i can understand ur concern.. coz i ever did experience that 'laziness' b4 in some of my assignments.. but luckily it's not crucial moments..

    Dat's y i'll only use a max of 2Gb card if i were to shoot events that doesn't have breaks in between.. Else i'll usually use my 512Mb or 1Gb card.. If there's a break in the event.. i'll change my card during there and then.. of course i'll have to monitor my shots as well.. If u're shooting wedding.. i would suggest to get a few smaller cards say 1Gb and a portable storage drive.. think it's a better combi..

    Currently no experience of such.. but i pray hard i won't kena at all as well..

    hmm... No more vote and suggestion? I decided to take up Sandisk for MO. The COMEX is coming soon, 1st~4th Sept.

    If you get any price/model of Sandisk from COMEX, plz share the price/model here. I need the info as guide. Thank you in advance!

    I will use only Lexar and Kingston. The new 2gb Kingston SD card is excellent in speed.

    I think Lexar are cheaper comparing to Sandisk both almost works the same in terms of speed and warranty

    Haha, I think Lexar MO in future but not together with Sandisk now. I can see Eastgear offer attractive price for Lexar (http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=148603)so no point to create another MO. But it is rare to see Sandisk MO or special price for us.

    I start contact with memory supplier and hopefully can create MO just after COMEX (need COMEX price to bargain).

    KINGSTON, have some compatibilty issues with Nikon cameras. I have a friend who is using on a D2X which shoot only RAW. Out of 10 times, there is a 1-2 times some images are corrupted.

    LEXAR price is about $650-680 for a 4GB

    KINGSTON only $355...? Half the price? No way man.......Go with Lexar if you have the $$$$ for it.

    Anyway, if you are not shooting on RAW mode with a D2X, then a 2 X 2GB cards is a safer option to go.

    do agree with Pro Image.. but guess it's not only abt the $$ issue, reliability oso comes into play.. cheaper cost as it may be for other brands but if any prob does occur to the card while u're on assignment.. how are u gonna answer to ur client?

    Kingston has been quite good with its products.. however u'll still need to find a card dat's suitable for u usage.. Do ur homework first.. Shooting in many yet smaller capacity cards (wrt to the cam u use) will certainly be a safer method..

    Pro Image, thanks for the advice.
    Appreciate the information given.
    Will go for Lexar.

    Well, any CF/SD, irregardless of brands, can give u corrupted image or hang your camera if the card got bad sector

    Personally, I have the following problems before

    a Sandisk Ultra II 2GB that got bad sector and hang the camera

    a Lexar 80x 2GB with corrupted image and corrupted FAT (a bit different from the infamous image missing problem)

    a Kingston SD that cannot be recognised

    a Twinmos CF that can be recognised but cannot write anything on it.
