Hey everyone, I ran into an issue this weekend when I shot a friend of mine's wedding, I ran out of space faster than expected. I have 2x 4 gig cards and 2x 2 gig cards, I shot with my 7D as my main camera and a 30D as my wide angle backup. I've been considering ditching my 2 gig cards and getting something bigger but I remember someone telling me, or reading it somewhere, that the bigger the card the better chance of catastrophic failure. Now I don't shoot with the 7D's full resolution 18MP, I dial it down to 10 to save room.

So my question is, how big are the memory cards that you're using? And do people still use those epson portable hard drives? I remember a few years ago some of my friends had them to dump memory cards on instead of using a laptop.

On a side note, the wedding turned out fine, I was lucky enough to have my laptop and dumped my memory cards halfway thru and ended up with 20 gigs of pictures, ( 4 full 4 gig cards and 2 full 2 gig cards )
