    Hello everyone,

    I'm thinking of buying a Sony Alpha digital SLR, and I'm just curious as to the approximate size of maximum quality pics taken on a 10mp camera, just so I get some idea of what size Memory Stick I'd be looking at purchasing, and how many images would fit on there.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Get a 1GB stick and go from there.

    Any general estimate of how many pics would fit on a one gig stick?

    I have a Nikon D70s which is 6.1 MegaPixels. The normal jpeg size is around 1.5Mb and I was getting approximately 680 picures on my 1Gb compact flash card. I have now upgraded to an 8Gb card and get 4600 normal pictures, or 9000 basic quality pictures. If I switch to RAW I get around 1500 photos.
    Hope that helps

    I had a quick look on the sony website and found the manual for the Sony A100 digital SLR http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/2681187121.pdf, page 27 tells you the info you are looking for.

    1Gb will hold 358 pictures at 10mp

    I've just checked my A100. With a 1GB card you should get about 65 raw, or 240 JPEG fine images.

    I have a 2GB in my 10mp Canon. For JPEG: on the best setting it will hold about 400, and the worst setting it will hold about 2600. For RAW it will hold about 200.
