The nod is alwasy for the larger size so you can take more pictures before dumping it onto the PC. The only downsides are:
1. Cost (not as costly as it was 2 years ago!)
2. Maybe a little slower camera startup as the card fills. I've only seen this on a few cameras. Seems the newer ones are smarter about this.
Does anyone have a suggestion on the size of compact flash card I should get for a Cannon EOS Digital Rebel? I would especially appreciate anyone who has this camera to let me know what size compact flash they decided to go with and what they think of it.
