    Just checking

    I recently had a shoot at a church function with over 200 attendees in line for a pic. No backup camera. Out of the gate, the camera wouldn't fire. Checked all the settings , reset and still not firing. Turned off and back on - nada. Then remembered I'd forgot to put in the memory card after dumping to computer. Don't you hate it when the problem is the nut on top of your shoulders ?

    Both my cameras have dual cards so I always have a backup BUT my drone only has one card. I have gone out to fly something and gotten the drone set up, calibrated the compass and waited for everything to warm up and taken off. Then flew into position to take the shot only to see the no card warning when I pressed the exposer button.

    Learned that lesson a while back and try to keep a spare SD card in my camera bags. I have a few older 4 and 8gb cards I don't use - they are tucked away in the pockets of some of my camera bags.

    But that dual card slots have saved my bacon many a time.

    One feature of the D500 is that expensive XQD storage 'card'. It is a bother to unload as I need to pull out the special adaptor or plug in the camera directly. .... but it too has saved my bacon when I've forgotten to reinsert the SD card into the camera.
