    i currently own a Canon 6d. I've shot 4 weddings & have a rather big extravagant one coming up. I'm looking for advice on cards, GB and if I should break up each segment of the day.

    My last weddings I used 2 64GB Sandisk Extreme.

    But I'm thinking for editing purposes it might be better to use more cards, less GB.

    Recommendations please

    I always like using cards on the smaller side anyway, that way if you have a failure then you lose less photos.

    32gb cards seem to be my go-to nowadays.

    16 gig cards work fine.

    That's extreme!

    I'm assuming one was a duplicate, so even at that, filling one 64GB card is a LOT of photos.

    If you're making a backup copy, I don't see the point of splitting the day.

    How (and when) will you know if the first card has an issue? After the event will be too late.

    Sandisk Extreme.

    I usually try to find small ones, but lately the smallest I see are 8GB. Oh, well, still fairly cheap even at that size.

    Thanks for your input . It's super helpful. I'm really trying to corner the wedding market now that I have fallen into it so I'm quite the beginner.
