valentino-

Your statement regarding downloading really surprises me. Cable down loading has its own problems as well.

(1) It is slow.

(2) If the camera battery fails your photos are lost.

Neither of those two problems happen when using a card reader.

Hi Sarah,

Issue number two is not so bad - I recently deleted the wrong photo and was able to quickly un-delete it from the camera's SD Card (via the cable) using a free undelete program (I used "******").

How does a battery failure cause you to loose pictures?

Photos are lost because when the power to the camera is lost, the download cycle is stopped in its tracks. What has been already downloaded cannot be recovered (except by a separate software recovery program) and the downloaded photos have been stripped from the card.

As Mick mentioned, and I just noted, those lost photos have to recovered by a separate software program.

If you take a look at the thread titled: "Talk me out of a DSLR" you will find a series of "learning posts" already there, and I will stay with the thread as long as folks want to ask questions.

I see what you are saying now. That's why it's also a good idea to a UPS on your PC so if the electricity "flickers" or goes off the card won't be corrupted.
Digital pictures can go to "bit heaven" in the blink of an eye or electricity.
