The answer is on page 178 of your User's Guide.
It shows 156 photos for 512 megabyte card.
Since 2Gig is 4 times larger.
156 x 4 = 624 (approximate)
How many photo will I be able to take using a Canon SD500 and having my camera setting on superfine and large? My SD card is 2 Gigs.
I know that Joe Randolph recommended shooting with superfine and having a larger card to take advantage of this. Thus avoiding a JPEG compression issue.
I was comparing digital photos this past Monday with my neighbor.
I had images shot on fine. His wife had images shot as small.
The difference was amazing to view.
I cropped both images using Photoshop.
My neighbors was really grainy (using small) and mine were very good (using fine).
There is also the fact that my neighbor had a camera with 3 MPX.
A lower value than my Canon's 7.1 MPX. Cannot compare apples to oranges here.
I still think we should shoot all photos as super fine V/S small, as Joe Randolph recommended.
My wife has a Canon S400 and her photo images using fine are wonderful. Would be even better using superfine, so I adjusted her camera to superfine this week. Her flash compact flash card reader is a 256MB. (Have two.)
Great photo images.
My hat's off to Canon technology.
There are better cameras out there. However, we both like the small size of the Digital Elf while traveling or shooting family photos.
Here is my wife's photo shot using a Canon S400 and on fine & large settings.
Kind of neat! (Photo taken at a Turkish fishing port, Cesme, last May.)
Always nice to have a great photo shot while traveling and viewing them later. Across the street from these fishing boats is an wonderful fish restaurant. You pick out your own fresh fish to have cooked and served to you. Just awesome! Wish I were there right now.
Should have taken a photo of the restaurant and the amazing fresh fish selection for you to view last May.
