Storage capacities

How many digital photos can you store on a flash memory card? Consult the chart below to see how many pictures you can save as JPEGs onto flash memory cards of varying storage capacities. Just locate what megapixel-size camera you're using in the left column, and read across the chart under the memory card capacities.

Note: if you take any short videos with your digital camera, you’ll want even more memory.

Approximate Number of Images Per Card*

Approximate Number of Images Per Card* * Exact Number of images will vary from camera to camera. Estimates based on "High-Resolution" camera settings with the least amount of JPEG compression. By shooting at the "Normal" or "Low" resolution you can approximately double the capacity of the card.
