RANT: If you have two SLOTS you better fill them

How important are your photos to you, your family or your clients? What happens if your memory card fails and you can’t recover the images? One if it’s a job, you just lost all the money you were going to get paid and two you’re probably never getting a job from them again.

Do you want to know a surefire way to protect yourself from this ever happening or at least cut down on the probability? The simple answer is USE TWO MEMORY CARDS if your camera has two slots. Many of todays cameras have two card slots, not just the professional ones.

Put a card in each slot and tell the camera to save RAW to both. Not RAW to one and JPEG to the other, RAW to both. You want the same files going to both cards just in case.

Cards are so inexpensive today that you can’t use the excuse that you can’t afford extra cards. The truth is you can’t afford not to have extra cards in your camera. I just looked it up online, a two pack of LEXAR 32 gig class 10 1000X cards are only $44!!!

That’s it, that’s the RANT, if you have two card slots, you better fill them.
