I am thinking of using an 8GB memory card in the second slot for backup whilst only using 1GB cards in slot one, is this advisable and does anyone do similar?
My reason for doing this is as follows...I am a wedding photographer and my idea is to shoot each stage of the day on separate cards ie: Bride and bridesmaids getting ready on a 1GB card whilst backing up on the 8GB, then change the first card for another for arrivals whilst also backing up on the same 8GB card and so on throughout the day, when i remove each 1GB card i will also backup on my portable hard drive, so by the end of the day i have 3 copies of everthing (can't be to careful). Sometimes i will use another 8GB card in slot one for tricky light when i need more than 1GB as i will be shooting in RAW, i know i will not exceed 8GB all day so everthing will be baked up on the 8GB card in slot two.
