    Finally I hope to be the proud owner of a Canon EOS 350D (rebel XT to anyone over the pond) on Saturday!

    And a Lexar 1Gb compact flash card.

    One question.

    How many shot can I get on a 1Gb card using the Jpeg and Raw mode ?

    cheers for the answers....

    There is no set number of shots you can fit onto the card. The file size will vary depending on a few things like ISO setting etc.

    Big Mike is right, it does vary, but as rough guide, My 300D estimates between 120 and 140 RAW pictures on a 1Gb card. I haven't shot JPEG for a while, but I'd guess you're looking at maybe 250 or so.

    Make sure you have the latest firmware, etc... Some folks have had problems with Lexar cards and EOS cameras. You'll get approx 110 RAW shots in a gig. I don't know how many jpegs; probably 250-300?

    I get about 130/140 on a 512 CF card with my 350D shooting largest jpeg... I guess a gig will be roughly double.

    I got the EOS 350D (Rebel XT) today and I think I will be shooting jpeg+Raw.

    I have a X's Drive II (30GB transferable) so I can back up.

    I was woindering if a 1Gb is enough

    but with it I get a free 256MB card from Canon!

    :lol: :hail: :hail:

    Jpeg+raw is for folks who need to deliver proofs/CDs onsite. Dive in and shoot raw, then convert to tiff and jpeg as needed. Dealing with raw is way easier dealing with jpegs, IMHO.
