canon 50mm f1.8
32GB CF card
digital picture frame
New toys are exciting.
Just wondering what you would us e a32GB card for though? How many pictures would that hold? 3000? Imagine if you lost it.... yikes!
Yeah I kinda think have 3 or 4 4 gb or many 8 gb works better for me!
But Very happy you bought some new stuff cause I just spent 400 on B&H myself. So I guess we are both excite.
I got the 50mm and Sb-600 flash!!
Well, all I know is that my 2 GB is not nearly enough. I figure with the 32GB I won't have to worry about it anymore. I don't really lose things.
You will love your nifty fifty It's the best investment I ever made. It or my 35 mm are pretty much always attached to my camera for anything professional. Next on the list is the 85mm.
I'm envious of the F/1.8 . Seriously, that's a sweet lens! Congratz.
Why would you buy a 32 gig card? Tell us about your shooting environment and the cost of the card. Personally a couple of 4 gig cards are fine for me. Plus the whole day is not shot if you lose one.

Sounds cool....that would hold 1600 RAW pics out of my camera at 20MB ea....but, I have an aversion to putting all of my eggs in one basket. I would rather carry around a few more smaller cards just in case something happened to one of them. That way, if one of the cards were to take a crap, I would still have some images to work with.
Congrats on the purchases, though....a nifty-fifty is definitely next on my shopping list.
I delete my pictures off my cf card after I upload them - I rarely go past a few hundred in a day! That must hold weeks worth!
I'm not sure your camera will accept a 32gb card. My 40D's are only compatible up to a 16GB. At least that's what Canon support told me.
