    Exclamation URGENT : Advice Needed

    This is really last minute but I am going away for 17 days this sunday & haven't even had time to buy CF cards & extra batteries for my brother's S45. Would appreciate your recommendations for brand, price & shop.

    Btw, does anybody know how much it costs for a 1GB CF card & how many pics a CF card can hold if I set the image to the highest resolution in the camera?

    1GB CF should cost around $500 plus. Should be able to hold more than 1000 2mp pix at highest quality, or about 400+ 4 megapixel images.

    What i think?

    well, since it is a S45, i would get 2-3 pieces of 256MB or 2 pieces of 512MB CF cards. Have experienced the "put all my eggs in 1 basket" incident, as the one and only CF card i carried had a formatiing problem, and there goes the entire trip.

    CF cards are supposed to be hardy, and they are. However as for formatting errors, you never know when it will happen, so my advise is not to get 1 big card (unless you are always shooting in raw mode).

    Obviously it cost more to get more cards, but it is a precaution for me.
