Hey i will in europe for about 21 days (12 days of that on on europen discovery) in may, and i do like to take lots of pictures. i bought a 4 gb memory card just for the trip. Is that going to be enough?

    My 4gb memory card can hold just over 1000 pictures with my camera. Personally, I know I’m going to take a lot more pictures than that, so I’m planning on at least another 4gb, probably more!

    Hi there
    You could get a 16 gb one and that will last you for the entire trip!

    The only problem with one large memory card is if your camera is lost or stolen, or there’s a problem with your card you lose all your photos. That said, having to keep track of several smaller ones has its own problems, and buying 4×4gb would be more expensive than buying 1×16gb!

    Yeah its pretty 50/50 either way unfortunately! I think I will be taking 2 16 GB cards I think and just be super careful with my camera!! aha

    Definitely! Mine’s biased towards more and smaller cause somehow that’s what I’ve managed to acquire! I’m hoping to add another 8gb card before I go. I recently took 3000 photos over 1 month when I was sharing a camera … hate to think what I’ll be like in Europe for 2 months with my own!!

    I can get cards cheap at my work so I’ve stocked up and have 6 × 8Gb and a 4Gb cards so far, although some are for the portable media player I’m taking for the plane/bus. At max settings on my camera an 8Gb card holds 1500 pics, so I might grab a few more before I leave
