I thought it was GigaBytes today. That space is for holding things like video. Let's say that a full length film is 4G. Would 7 or 8 films be plenty? If so, 32GB.

I'm not the sharpest tack in the box.I know it was GB but my fingers didn't. I would not be doing movies or music. I would be using the camera a lot. Taking pic. and video.

Let's figure out how many pics.

Let's give each pic a generous megabyte. With 32 GB that's about 32 thousand pictures. Most of us would be fine with that.

you definitely won't use 32GB. Go the cheaper option! =D
