Most annoying thing you can do with your memory card

10 months 1 week ago #636211 by Nancy Hait
Which I have managed to do twice this month!

That is, you get home after a photo shoot and NOT download and back up those shots.  Instead, I went back out to another gig a few days later and continued shooting on that same card.  So then I had 2 gigs of shots on the same card!  

Annoying.  

Well I can thank my lucky stars that I didn't format my card!  That would have been really bad!

I can understand the discomfort of a full card, you were lucky
your card was big enough.

I use a XQD and a SDXC cards that are ginormous in my combo.
In the morning stress, I did get real early to the marsh for a short
jump; the light was great and, during setup, I see I forgot them
both at the studio.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Oh no!  How far of a drive was it to get them?

It's so easy to fall behind when you do that.  Before you know it, you have 2,000+ photos on your card that you have to filter through!  Been there and done that!

Um, really?

I organize by date, and it's an easy matter to copy the files from the card to the harddrive, separating by date, and then work with each group as needed (import to LR, rename, etc).

You don't have to use LR to copy the files off the memory card.

Luckily, the new studio is only at some 2+ km from the
marsh — an extremely long drive when one knows that
light will not wait for you… or anyone for that matter.

Ok, I was enraged for that but I'd rather lose the marsh
session then having no cards once at the client's.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Sorry, but IMO the most annoying thing you can do with your memory card is leave it home.  Which I've done a couple times over the years!
