    CF cards are getting cheaper by the day it seems.
    Trouble i have with CF cards that big is in that if i have an 8Gb card, then it would suggest i need more than 2Gb worth of photos on 1 card. Therefore i would have over 2000 photos on 1 card and i would never do that just in case i lost it, broke it or just plain couldnt find what i wanted on it.

    I think sticking to 4 x 2Gb will do me so i dont run the risk. Plus i can use 1 card for each situation (got a wedding at the weekend and will use a blank card so as to not use up my "family photos" card).

    Those cards are pretty dreadful, really slow. If you only shoot jpeg then that may not be a problem, shoot RAW though and ouch!

    If one big card fails or goes missing, you lose a hell of a lot of photos. I tend to stick to a few 2gb myself. Those size cards are only useful if you're using a high res digital back.
