is this thing supposed to come with a memory card?
nope. Buy a 16 gig sdhc card and a tamron 17-50 2.8. Enjoy.
I love mine. Got an 8GB SDHC for mine with a package.
A friend of mine told me 16GB and 32GB cards are somewhat unreliable; any truth to this?
Selling the D90 18-105mm kit lens for $250/shipped in yard sale
I don't know if the larger cards are any less reliable, but the larger the card the more pictures you can fit on it, conversely the more pictures you stand to lose if the card fails.
While the failure rate on 4gb cards and 32gb cards might be the same it would sure suck more to lose 32gb of pictures versus losing 4gb.
I run 4gb cards for my 40d and one 8gb for when I just don't feel like changing cards.
im on waitlist to get the nikon 35mm 1.8, but i am looking for another lens. any recommendations?
I've been using sd cards since the 16 megabyte days and have never had one fail. I don't know who these paranoid fucks are that spread fud about one being more reliable than another.
i have a sandisk extreme iii sdhc 8gb
lmk if u want it.. ill hook it up..
its just laying around ><
You haven't lost one either? my:
I just heard from a RL friend that the SDHC 32GB and 16GB get some sort of "gate logic address" corruption - hosing the card. He is a EE and does he research, so I just took his advice and played it safe with a Kingston Class 4 8GB card. Perhaps this has been fixed, as he made this decision 9 months ago. Also, it may not be an issue with high-end SanDisk cards.
I use a 32GB SDHC card in my Handheld GPS, but it is not constantly writing/reading to/from the card like one would be in a camera.
Also, I've had 2GB cards go corrupt to the point where I couldnt read it from any external reader, but my P&S camera was able to extract the data.
4GB cards are cheap, and any decent card wallet can carry 8. Get a couple of these and be happy.
I'm in the same boat.
I've NEVER had a piece of removable memory fail on me
i have a reader that does this with every card i put it in, but the camera reads the card just fine every time. in my case, my reader corrupts the cards as soon as i put them in it.
Yeah, i have a couple of cheap 8gb cards, but i've decided that all my new cards will be 4gb cards. I'd rather lose 4gb of images than 8 or 16. (course I'm using CF, but it still applies)
I also have never had memory fail on me. knocks on wood
how often do you know of a card actually failing to the point of not being able to recover the photos off of it? assuming no physical damage of course, i have never seen a card that i wasn't able to recover at least 99% of the photos off of. hell, i've run recovery programs on old 256mb sd cards that were formatted multiple times and "recovered" a gig and a half worth of pictures.
I personally have never had a CF card fail - my reasoning is that if I am going to get into doing wedding photography I don't want to lose an entire wedding because that ONE time a card did fail. Or worse yet I physically lose the card. With multiple cards if one fails/gets lost I can at least salvage part of the job by having pictures on other cards.
I'm doing my first wedding with 2 x 4GB Extreme IV and 2 x 16GB Extreme III.
