Digital Cameras

How many digital photos on a 5MP camera will fit onto a 512MB card?

That answer is going to depend on the picture quality or

compression you select. I suggest searching online for

manufacturer's specs on the camera in question. The manufacturer

will often provide a table that shows the number of files for

different settings. If you're not shooting in RAW or TIF mode, the

MB used per shot and shots per card will vary somewhat according to

image detail and sometimes the ISO setting as well. So what you get

will be a guideline.
