lets say you got a xti 10.1 mp slr

and you got

2 - 1 gig cards
2 - 2 gig cards
2 - 4 gig cards

how many picture can you store an those cards, i know each picture varies in size depending on the picture taken. i am just looking for a average. i know i kould figure this out but i suck at math. i noticed pictures range in size from 3.50 mb to 6.50 mb.

Wow...a word problem from 7th grade math.

lets say 5mb/pic average

and (1X2) + (2x2) + (4x2) = 14 gb

(14 gb X 1024mb/gb)/5mb= ~2867 pictures

Now the real question, who gives a fuck?

well my 4 gig card will net me about 87 pics per gig and you are speaking about 14 total gigs so I am gonna say you can get about 1200 pics from that which makes the math teacher above off by a whole lot.

now also keep in mind that depending on the ISO you shoot at will change the number of pics you can take by about 10-12%

More pictures than you can probably take on one battery.

I get about 430-460 pics per 4gb card with my xti.

I filled my 2 4gb and my 1 2 gb one day to the max, it was just shy of 1400 pics total.

each raw file was between 8 and 10 mb
