On this subject of formatting memory cards.

Given that  it seems better to use the card until it is fully loaded then format, or at least use for a couple of three months, rather than deleting unwanted pics regularly,,,,perhaps the memory capacity should be borne in mind when buying a new one.

My camera is equipped with a 8GB (came with the camera) and really it wouldn't matter if was half that size. I have another camera with a 16GB card, which is far too large.

So, I would say a memory card of 4 to 8GB is plenty for most of us.

Who said size doesn't matter?

 Thought you may like this, Lyn. 

Ann - Lyn did post a pic of her lovely mum & aunt recently, but I do agree with the gist of what you say.

PS. The above shot of the duck above would have been a really nice shot had I been able to take it from the side....I think the wing has a beautiful symmetrical pattern. Alas, we have to be quick & take the opportunities as they offer themselves.

Btw, as for the future of this thread, I notice it has been viewed almost 21000 times now, so someone is deriving something from it.

Some more really nice efforts,'re quickly becoming quite an accomplished photographer.

Re formatting memory cards. Like all information in instruction books, they usually confine themselves to saying how to do it, rather than why.

From what I know, I think it's advisable to format these cards every few months.
