Question about Cameras
I'm purchasing an Olympus 1030 and am trying to figure out what is my best bet for a memory card. I'm looking to be able to store around 400 pictures on top of my internal memory and about an hour or so of video. I'm thinking maybe a 2gb?
My question is......I read that a 2gb memory card will approximately hold up to 400 pictures and an hour of video but is that one or the other? Or can one card hold BOTH the max # of pictures including the max amount of video time?
And more importantly, is there a certain kind of card that I need to get to store my pics and videos with ultimately zero image quality loss? Isn't there only certain kinds of memory cards that will work with my new camera?
Any help, especially suggestions.... is/are welcome and greatly appreciated.
The # of picture your camera is able to take is not only dependant on the size of the memory card it is also dependant on the resolution your camera is set to take photographs at. The higher the resolution the more memory it takes to store the images, but the better quality images you will get with your camera. I would set the camera to the highest resolution possible because it is always possible to reduce an images size but you can't ever make them bigger. According to the manufacturer the largest memory card this camera takes is a 2 gb xD card and I would go with that. I hope this helps!
