I am a very amateur photographer for starters. Last year i spent 3 months flying around Europe, equipped with a Canon powershot A70. It had some default brand CF-card of 32MB. I made many pics, and zipped through them quite often to endulge. Very often however i got 'corrupt data' or 'memory error' warnings, and many photos were lost or appeared 'split'.
Now i am going to buy my own camera, Powershot A75, and need to choose CF-card. I am going away for three weeks soon (nearly 40 hours around airplanes for travel ), without chance of uploading to a computer, so i will need to rely on my CF-card not to mess up like that last one did. There are many reviews, but i still can't make up my mind. As i am a member of this forum i thought i'd ask the pros, maybe someone has tips for this amateur photographer . I am looking to buy at least one 256MB card, maybe a second one(smaller). My criteria are not especially speed, but more reliability and stability. I expect to do alot of browsing though the pics in the meantime, i hope this does not damage the stored photos. choices in NL are Kingston, lexar, Dane-Elec, Sandisk (ultraII) and transcend.
cheers for any tips
