my old line of thinking was always that it was better to have multiple smaller ones, just in case one was corrupt or I forgot one in the computer. Of course with files getting bigger with each generation of camera, those old 4GB and 8Gb cards fill up awfully quick.

In the days if single card bodies I would shoot two bodies with 1-2gb cards making sure half the ceremony, first dance, etc was shot with each body. On top pf that I would change cards regularly. With my first dual card body I still tried to split up the coverage between bodies, but switched to larger cards that I wouldn't have to switch during events. I never had an issues with bending CF card pins or writing over a card at an event, but I know others that had so....

And Expense? I had a connection in college I could buy 5.25 128k floppy disks from wholesale. I ran a small and profitable business selling them to other students.
