Just wondering - how much memory do you think is sufficient for your photographic needs? 512MB? 1GB? The more the merrier? Is there an optimal amount?
My 256MB card gives me approx 300 shots in JPEG mode, but only a miniscule 36 shots in RAW. I suppose if I was just shooting one day's worth, it would be more than sufficient, but for longer trips, then I'd have to look to alternative forms of storage.
What does everyone think?
Agree... more is better... if you paid for top of the range high megapix camera, you might as well make full use of it and take pics with the best quality. Of course better quality demands higher memory. I've got a 512mb CF card.
But work provide a 4G card to some of my colleagues, which I occassionally use. I't awesome!
I currently have a 16MB card I would ove to get a 256 or 512MB card and then start looking at the i/PowerBooks, as i have always wanted a MAC and a APPLE I am thinking I will kill two birds with one stone =)
YEah .. we unloaded quite a bit .. hehe a wireless connection to the laptop ey ..
i know u can connect the 300D to ur computer and use REmte capture to unload directly ..
but then ur laptop battery wil ldie ..so no point unleess u carry a power gerator on ur bak ^^
i use a 512 card now .. thinking about getting a 2gb micro drive.. the solit state ones r more efficient ..
but will eat my pocket ~_~
Not only laptop battery die, but more importantly, camera battery will die wouldn't it? And thats the worrying one! without camera battery = no pictures!
For now, I'd prefer to have 2x512mb rather than 1x1024gb, though its the same amount of mb, having two cards will allow me to shoot with one while unloading the other.
uhahua yeah .. unless u shoot faste rthen u can unload ... heheh ...
then its a problem ^^
yeah i know what he means ..
i go shooting wid adam n my utha frend ..so yeah ..
its is anoying waiting for his USB 1.1 Flash drive to unload ...
we should have brang 2 card readers adam ,,, faster that way ,,,
hehe ..if thats true ..then PCMCIA should be good for you ..
