The skies the limit, is that a good thing?

There’s been a few announcements in the realm of memory card capacity.

Largest SD card yet…

Lexar goes 8GB...

SanDisk goes 8GB…

And Sony announced a few months back that a 8GB Memory Stick Duo is coming.

But I have to ask, when is enough enough?

I agree that larger cards are a good idea, but when I say larger I mean something like 2GB, not eight. A 2GB card is perfect if you’re shooting large files sizes and allows you plenty of frames. So 8GB allows even more, sounds good right? But aren’t you just risking more frames at the same time?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to buy two or three 2GB cards and risk loosing 200 pics instead of having one 8GB card and risking 800 pics? Just a thought.
