Complete newbie here and wanted to ask about card size...

I've read that having several smaller cards is better than having one huge card. If something goes wrong with a smaller card, you haven't lost as many photos or as much money as you would if a 4gb card went bad.

Now, to my question: why would it be beneficial to have one 4gb card as opposed to four 1gb cards? (I have two 512 cards and plan to stay with that size unless there's something I'm missing.)

Any info would be greatly appreciated

WVButterfly,

There really arn't many advantages to one larger card, besides the fact that it is sometimes cheaper (where I live, a 2GB card is $80 and a 1GB card is $50).

However, besides that, the only real dissadvantage is that you need to switch the cards more often and carry your other cards around, which really isn't a problem.

Another note: 4GB cards don't work in many cameras as of right now, so I would be careful if you plan on buying one.
