    Um.. why is it a no no?

    And yeah that one looks like it'll work. It may not be the fastest reader in the world.

    Did you have to order the Sandisk off the internet? I've never seen them around here for sale..

    What was his explanation? Although I have always used a CF card reader I have yet to hear about it being a no no to load the images directly from the body itself....

    I think there must have been some misunderstanding about the downloading direct from the camera. It's certainly not a "no no" but it may be slower than a good card reader.

    After all, if it was a "no no" then shooting tethered would be as well, right? And Kelby blogged about how much he likes shooting tethered with LR only a few weeks ago...

    Define hard. You're limited to the length of the cord, that's the only difference.

    downloading from the body is defintily not a "nono" but it would be best to download with a card reader. It's also good to have one if your shooting a wedding or an event as you can keep your camera free and useable while still being able to unload your last batch.
