In Topic: CF Card Memory, How Much?

21 August 2009 - 04:27 AM

Oh yes, my Sony does the same.

The newer formats of RAW vary in size according to how much detail is in each shot - most cameras just divide the amount of free space by the maximum RAW size to calculate how many shots remain.

In a lot of cases you can almost fit double the "empty" amount on the card.

I sue a 16 gig card without any trouble. I guess it depends on the kind of photographer you are - if you keep the camera in continuous shoot and use it a lot, you may need bigger! In any case, since the battery lasts a good long time, I too seldom take the card out of the camera while on a dive trip. I like very much having only 1 card to import as I'm not very organized.

I just returned from Komodo and was looking through my photographs...this one totally surprised me, because I was taking a picture of the purple sea squirt, and never saw the green nudibranch until it was up on my monitor. Crazy stuff. I call it the "Accidental Nudi" and have identified it as a Nembrotha Cristata based on similar photos found here on wetpixel.

In Topic: Video with DSLR

Eventually you will see video that lets you get a high res frame that will make poster-sized prints that outshine today's SLR cameras. That's my prediction. And, of course, it will be in 3-D. We'll still have people saying, "I only shoot with film" though.

In Topic: Nikon D90 Announced

For my two cents, if I were just buying an SLR (as I did in April), and there were a suitable housing for it, I would get this over the D300. Being able to house High Def Video with an SLR is just too sweet a deal. I love my D300. I really do. But I don't think I'll ever NEED the D300, whereas I definitely miss the flexibility of taking video when there is something that is just so cool to include with motion....
