I just bought the Canon Digital Rebel XTi, and have a 1GB Sandisk II compact flash card.

I was wondering about how many pictures I could store on this, in each format.

If anyone could give me an estimate, or an exact number if they know, that'd be great.

Thank You :)

Your asking for someone to do a lot of work for ya. Luckily it's already been done. Look at page 60 of the manual. There is a table with the info you seek.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Ahhh, well I'm glad it's in the book then :-P

The camera hasn't gotten here yet :(

As long as it comes before 3:15 I'll be good, cause if it doesn't, it's bound to come when I'm in class, which means I have to go over to UPS and have a joy standing in their hour lines like last time.

But I'll be sure to check it when I get it.

Thank you.

Well here is a sneak peek then. As the manual has them for 512mb cards, I doubled them for you. L, M, S = large, medium, small and the F, M = fine and normal
LF 260
LN 498
MF 432
MN 820
SF 752
SN 1418
Raw 100
Raw+jpeg 72

Thank you very much, much appreciated.

I suppose I should buy another 1 gig.

Someone said something about not buying more than 2 gigs because when they die, you lose a lot, where as if you buy 2 x 1gig, you will have another 1 gig left instead of losing 2 gigs all together, is that wise, or should I just go for the 2?

i would get 2 -2 GB cards....the reason why people say to get 2 cards is if something happens to the first, you have the other as a backup and not caught without a card.

Size has nothing to do with it, besides save you money. I use 2 -2 GB cards....and sandisk and kingston.

I agree! I think two cards per camera is the best way to go.

The cards are pretty reliable but I would not use a CF card for long term storage. As to the size, that’s pretty much personal preference. Some like more, but smaller cards, others fewer and larger cards. They all work fine.
