My new camera, a Nikon D3100, produces pictures (at full resolution) that are 3.2 Mb each. With this chip I can store about 10 pictures.
Ten thousand pictures? Are you InSaNE? Are you cRaZY? Are you NUTZ?
It wasn't that long ago that a cassette of pictures was 12, 24 or 36. And you had to send it off to be developed. Double prints? Yes, please!
(Ah, that's going to cost you a pretty penny!)
Now, you can take 10 pictures for every 1 you would have shot back then and either keep them, discard them, print them or send them off to be printed, or publish them on-line in a variety of ways.
Where will it end? Cameras that shoot pictures at the atomic level? Time will tell.
