Hmmm. Now I am contemplating a 1GB Micro-Drive.

Working for Big Blue would probably mean a nice discount.

They are pretty cheap already... May be you should find out from Big Blue when the 2.5/5G will become available. Before all your friends become Toshiba...

Default cards

personally i'm about to drop for a delkin 512mb $320. not enough of a difference in sustained xfr rate on a D7i for me to notice. delkin lifetime warrentee. lexar 5 years. i'm tough on gear. i'm starting to get a little weirded out on marketing. the cards can handle thes rates but can the camera push that rate thru in buffer xfr. when im home and i plug it into my reader and while its transfering to my disk i usually go online right here to discuss the many merits of many things in digital photography

See here for vibration test

and according to their specs

Shock:
o Operating 175G (2ms)
o Non-operating 1500G (1ms)

... I don't think the camera or yourself for that matter can survive theses conditions... so I stop in believing my grandma tales quite a while ago... (it's your money go ahead and pay for the insurance...)
