I'd get perhaps a couple of 2gb cards, or a single 4gb. Don't go with a huge 8gb as cards can get corrupted and with this in mind it's better to have a few smaller ones.

I would highly recommend the Lowepro Fastpack 250.

I've had cards go through the washing machine that still work perfectly

Send me some images (if you get out to LHR this weekend) if you like and I'll let you know if they're as sharp as they should be.

As for cards, personally I'd go with the 2x 4gb combo
|Quoting dendrobatid (Reply 5):|
As you are UK based, have a look at 7dayshop.com for cards.
No VAT as they come from Jersey and they are much cheaper than buying anywhere else.
I mainly use 4G ones
Unbranded batteries are good there too

Hopefully not intentionally? Did the card have some ground in dirt?
7 Day Shop is about the best, as Mick says - I bought a 4gb Extreme from them for £13.98! I still maintain that Ultra cards are fine, however I don't tend to use my 50D's 6fps (or whatever it is) burst. I find recomposing the shot and firing again independently a better and more reliable option than just letting fire with the shutter while trying to track the subject. The novelty of a fast fps I think wears off as you become more experienced with a camera.
Still, if you are going to shoot continuously in RAW the Extreme series is worth considering. Having said that I can get a good 5-7 consecutice RAW frames out of my 50D before it starts to use the buffer.

Sometimes when I go to take a shot and focus, with the flash on - its flickers and the screen says busy, what does this mean? Also, what are the stock settings you would recommend. ISO 100, which f. stop?
Just need a few tips to get me on my way.
