"That sounds a great idea, however having multiple cards on me and having to change on site id end up losing them, also if you have a plane or ship entering your viewfinder then realise you only have 1 shot left the chances are you would…"

"Being a Canon man I know little about Nikon so I can't help on those. However, regarding SD cards I would recommend having a few lower capacity cards rather than one high capacity one. They aren't the largest of items and can be lost…"

"I use a Canon 40D married to various lenses. Sigma 28-135,Canon 75-300 mainly. I also have a Sigma 170-500 which I use at airshows. If a DSLR would be too expensive or bulky then there are some good bridge type cameras. If I am going away or…"
