    Jon is buying it for me today :)

    It's a MASSIVE splurge I know, but Jon's treating and I'm accepting. Best Buy is running a special this month - no interest on purchases if paid for within 18 months. I got a (small) raise last week and after doing the math, I sorted out that I could have it totally paid off w/ that money before the 18 mths is up. I've been looking at it for weeks and I really just *want* it!! I'm a tad bit gutted about the fact that last week they were selling the camera, an extra lens and a bag for $123 less than the separate purchase price and this week it's disappeared...but that's ok, I'll just buy the camera for now and perhaps ask for the lens from Santa.

    My question now is what size SD memory card *should* I buy? Taking into consideration, I'll mostly be taking photos and *short* vid clips (say, less than 60 seconds each) AND my rather irrational fear of oversized memory cards (I'm always afraid I'll have the massive memory card filled with all my photos and it will go bad...the classic "all your eggs in one basket" sort of mentality).

    OMG, Jules...I REALLY want that.

    Im beyond excited for you! That's just a heck of a brilliant camera! you're going to have SO much fun and given your talent, wow.

    Size card... well 4GB are pretty economic these days! 2GB if you're worrying but I think 4 is a decent compromise.

    That 50mm f1.8 lens is and always has been canon's bargain lens. Sharper than lenses you'll pay 1000s for and less than $100 :) Not a zoom lens of course but still a bargain

    Oooh thanks you, I was just texting Jon that I thought the 4G was a decent choice, but that I was checking w/ "the professionals"

    I'm thinking if I buy 2 4G cards I should be ok for now...

    I'm so flippin' excited!!!!

    i think 2 x 4gb would be good i have 2 x4gbs and a 2gb and i shoot a lot in RAW so you should be fine with that- hundreds of photos.


    can't wait to see the photos!
