    Has anyone got one of these cards. I have bought one but not actually received it yet. As im quite new to this I thought a big card would be convenient but maybe it would be better to have several smaller cards? I am off on holiday soon and dont want to risk card faliure. Do these large capacity cards often fail?

    Many photographers (myself included) don't trust large (er) cards. Not because they're any less reliable then smaller cards, but because if they DO fail, your losing a lot more.

    They don't fail any more often than smaller cards, but all cards will eventually fail. The question then remains is how many pictures were on it.

    I like to carry multiple 4 gb cards for just that reason
