I would just buy the biggest memory card you can find and get a bigger hard drive for your computer. It would be worthwhile to be able to shoot in RAW without worrying about space constraints.

I just checked my photo library - 200 gigs... That's shooting digital since 2001 with most of the time (5 years) using a Canon Rebel where the RAW files were only 6megs. I have 18 months of the 450D at around 12 megs per file, but now with close to 30 megs per 7D RAW file its going to eat up space! I agree though - shoot RAW and don't worry about the space as in 5 years a terabyte will be considered as a gigabyte is now...

Wow, the second and last photos are spectacular. I think #2 could use a little brightening/contrast to make it pop a bit. Either way, a beautiful sight!! :)

These are great.
Did you do any noise reduction after using ISO3200?

#5 and 2 are really nice, but if I had to vote, it'd be #2 for sure , it's a pearler!

All of these are 30 second exposures. No noise reduction - just a touch of sharpening. The star trails are just starting to show with the 30 seconds - next time I think I'll try shorter exposures and bump the iso to 6400. Seems a good way to see what the 7D can do!

Those photos are incredible. Glad to see there is so little noise for such a high ISO.
thumbs up from me

Going to be in Sedona next week and planning to shoot with my 7D and 1D mark III, what ISO did you use?
