    I currently have a 4GB memory card. I'm looking to buy more and wanting to get advice first.

    I'm going on vacation in less than 2 months to Smokey Mountains and Chattanooga. I plan on getting A LOT of pictures. I'm trying to figure out how many more memory cards I should buy and what size to take along with me. The last thing I want to do is get out in the mountains shooting pictures and run out of space.

    Also, does anyone know just how many pictures you can get out of a 4GB shooting only in RAW? For some reason, my camera is not showing the counter stating how many pictures taken/how many left. I've searched all the settings and don't see anywhere that I can turn that feature on. I could almost swear that it said something like that when I first got it, but I may be wrong.

    Don't know if this will help any but I use 10, 4gig cards. They will get me through 1 college football game and two college basketball games in a day or 2 college soccer games and 2 college volleyball games in a day. Since sports is my main focus, I think in terms of games vs memory. :D
