I may be living in the past, but I have been sticking to 4GB CF cards with my D300 so that I do not lose too many images if a card fails.

With the two card slot D7000 camera should I go to sets of 8GB, 16GB or 32GB cards since I can set the second card to do backup? Is one size more reliable than another? I use Sandisk cards.

Should I feel comfortable, regarding possible card failure, with any of the sizes.

Second thought: If I am on a long trip and want to use the slots in overflow mode, what size cards can I feel comfortable with? I know this is a personal decision, but I would appreciate thoughts and/or experiences that others have had with SD cards.

Money is not an issue at these levels. Image security is.

Technology moves on and maybe I am being too conservative and worried over nothing in this current era.

Thanks,

Jerry
