    Wow! All I did was to clarify what I thought he was saying. There wasn't any condescension intended on my part whatsoever.

    Easy, man.

    I see no condescension at all, just an explanation for your observation. It's just furthering the discussion.

    A new photographer reading this post might find it helpful to understand WHY you were getting more shots than the estimate, or even in just understanding that the number displayed is no more than an estimate. And, again, a beginning photographer very well might not know that image file sizes vary. This is a forum with a wide range of photographic and technological backgrounds.

    I'm puzzled by the fact that you make an observation and get mad when people reply. Since you didn't conclude your post by noting that the reason might be that file sizes vary, I thought that you might like to know this fact. As I'm not a mind reader, I had no idea that you have been using computers since 1985.

    Congratulations. I've been getting laid steadily since 1979 but no one really cares about that either, do they?

    Observation on memory card storage
    Sorry, all, calmer now. I still don't see why anyone thought I had a question or was confused or whatever. I was trying to help out anyone that might have been wondering; it looks like you can get at least a third more than what your camera predicts, which is pretty useful information.

    As a peace offering, I offer this just-edited picture of Neuschwanstein Castle...in the snow...in April. (We were unprepared for this kind of weather in terms of clothes. But the results were pretty beautiful.)
