it depends how much mega pixels the card has

About 250, since it depends on the camera settings as well.
Megapixel denotes image resolution, not storage capacity.
Probably around 600, give or take because it depends on the size of the pics you take Probably around 600, give or take because it depends on the size of the pics y…ou take
A 10-megapixel image in JPEG format takes up about 2,5 Mb of space (can vary depending on the quality of the photo). That means you should be able to fit about 1600 pictures o…n a 4Gb card. Every digital camera displays the number of pictures you can store on the current card. **** See also How many pictures will a 1GB memory card hold at 5.1 mega pixels A simple way to find out how many images you can have on any memory card is to turn on the camera and set the resolution and file sizes and see what it tells you. A number of things will dictate what size image you get. The first is the quality setting. On my camera I have a standard setting, a fine setting, extra fine setting, Raw plus JPEG, Raw and JPEG. With RAW images on a 2 gig card I get 398 images. With RAW/JPEG and on a large size (3008 x 2000 pixles) I get 298 images. This is because I get two sets of images. Setting it to RAW/JPEG and small file (1504 x 1000 pixles) I get 364 images. Setting my quality to EXTRA FINE and Large image (3008 x 2000 pixles) I get 613 images. My advice is to always shoot at either RAW or JPEG at the highest resolution. Storage capacity is so cheap nowadays it is hardly worth worrying about how many images you can get on a card
It depends on how much memory the camera has.
It depends on how big you want to print. Optimal quality will be reached by printing at around 300dpi. Here's some figures for some common sizes with arbitrary example cameras…: * 2.7 megapixels (2000x1312, early Nikon D1s): 6" 2/3, or about 170mm. * 3.1 megapixels (2160x1440, Canon D30): 7 inches, or about 182mm. * 6 megapixels (3072x2048, Canon D60 and 300D): 10 inches, or about 260mm. * Just under 8 megapixels (3456x2304, Canon 350D): 11" 1/2, or about 292mm. * 12 megapixels (4288 x 2848, Nikon D2x): 1' 2", or about 363mm. Assuming a 3:2 aspect ratio (as is very common on digital SLRs), you can work out the largest print you will get from a camera with the following ((mp * 10**6) / (2.0 / 3.0)) ** .5 Where mp is your number of megapixels. If you want to know the number of megapixels you will need to get a 300dpi print of a given width, then you do this: ( ((inches * 300) * ( (inches * 300) / (2/3) ) )) / 1000000 Where inches is the length of the longest side of the size at which you want to print. You can replace 300 with a lower value if you're not after a 300dpi print, and change "2/3" if you want to use an aspect ratio other than 3:2. You can ignore all the discussion of print sizes above if you're taking photos for Web use only. Even the 2.7mp camera would suffice for this. Note that there are many factors which matter far more than megapixels for something like this. To wit: * A picture from a cheap 10mp point-and-shoot camera will be of far worse quality, and will not be able to be printed as large, than a picture shot with a digital SLR with far fewer pixels. This is because of the small sensors in the former category of cameras. Stuffing more pixels into a small space leads to more noise; the camera applies lots of noise reduction to reduce this, but this will also nuke fine details, largely negating any extra resolution you would have gained from the extra pixels! Get yourself a digital SLR if you're serious. * Lenses. You'll probably need a good-quality macro lens to shoot smaller objects. * Lighting. Get tons of it.
A 10-megapixel camera however will be able to store approximately 650 pictures on a 2 GB memory card.
A 32 megabyte memory card can usually hold around 25 photos. However, a 10 megapixel photo will take up more space than a 5 megapixel photo therefore, this size memory car…d will only be able to hold 6 or 7 pictures.
The size of the final print is often the most important factor, Canvas hides some resolution defects so you probably can get away with an image twice the area (1,4 times the l…inear dimension) of a print on flat paper. In the end, it is a matter of judgment if you look at the print and think it looks good then it does if it does not look good then it isn't, no matter how many pixels are printed.
About 650 pictures.

If you are shooting in Jpg format, what most people use, and each photo is 12 mega pixels the average size of each photo will come out to be about 2.5 MB, allowing the card to… hold about 798 photos. If you were shooting in raw each photo would be a size of about 18 MB allowing you to fit about 112 photos on the card. So if you shoot in raw and empty your card frequently a 2 GB memory card will fit enough photos in with no prob. I have a 2 GB card and shoot Jpg and have never ran out of room.
= How many photos can 19 MB hold at 12 megapixels? =
On a 10 megapixel sensor you will probably be able to fit over twice the amount of photos that you will take with a 4 megapixel sensor. I guess 4,000 Photos compared to 2,000.… There is always a BUT, 2,000 to 4,000 photos is not worth loosing so much resolution. You are still talking about thousands and I'm not sure if you will even be able to take 2,000 photos in 4 or 6 months. I'll say take the 10 Megapixel camera with the 4 GB Card.
If you are clicking on Large Jpeg image format Mode it can take upto 600 pictures !!
