For the price of 1 Gig of memory in cards, you could buy 2 digital wallets with 10 Gig memory in each. Memory in a wallet is far less expensive than in a card, wallets are simple to use and are only the size of a compact camera.

Check out They have Sandisk 1GB cards for $205US. From what I've gleaned from the dpreview forums, this seems to be a reputable place.

I do agree though that a digital wallet is more economical for heavy users. One that looks good to me is the 20GB Archos Jukebox Multimedia: ck=searchViewed

Yes, not only can you take the card in to have regular photos made, you can also edit the pictures at home and take them in on a diskette or CD. I do this if I want to, say, crop the picture or clone out an unwanted feature. Having a digital camera has probably made me a sloppier picture-taker because I can run around snapping shots indiscriminately, knowing they can be fixed up later at home. By the way, the print quality from the Canon digital Elph seems to be equal to that of my Canon A-1 SLR.

I have the new Minolta digital camera that's the size of a pack of cigarettes. It's light, easy to use and the small memory sticks hold many pictures. You need to take a spare battery and extra stick or two but that's all.

I like to listen to my own choice of music on the plane, so instead of a digital wallet, I bought the Archos MP3 player. For just over $300, it has 20 G of memory, which is enough to hold all the music and pictures you will want. I think this is a far better solution than the extra memory cards. One thing to remember with a digital camera is that if you want the very highest quality pictures, you will be using a lot of memory; for snapshot type pictures, you can set the camera to use less memory.
