Well, OK, it's not the _biggest_ part of my kit, but I've just found that I now had a dead memory card because the little write protect tab has somehow fallen off! Very frustrating, anyone seen this before?

I think that's just a mechanical thing, isn't it? Maybe you can fix it with something... cut and superglue a little piece, use some tape, etc...

I guess we're talking SD cards? You probably could bodge something to make it work but then you couldn't really trust it. I'd bin it and get an order off to 7dayshop.com.

Much what I thought. Probably possible but not confidence inspiring and very annoying.

7dayshop don't do the model I'm after (Sandisk Extreme III 4GB) so I'll probably use play.com, fast and reliable before.

This is yet another reason why compact flash is superior. (Just bugging you because I know you don't like compact flash. Bummer.)

Eh, CF just gets the little bit of plastic that fell off my memory card jammed in one of the holes and breaks the pins, incapacitating your camera - BTW, had you said about the A900 before? Like it?

Impressed with your memory of personal trivia though!

Yes, I've had it for a little over a year now. I like it a lot. It's not perfect but it suits me pretty well. My biggest beefs are little things that could be changed in firmware like allowing mirror lock up to be combined with bracketing instead of being mutually exclusive settings. One of my favorite things is the viewfinder. 24 mega pixels can be nice at times too and high ISO is actually quite good when you consider the output size rather than looking on screen at 100%. I've shot a lot of indoor sports at ISO 2500 and 3200 and even without noise reduction normal size prints looks fine.
