Maybe you other photo enthusiasts can help me with this one.... They're coming out with more and more expensive memory cards. They have more storage capacity, and they have a number on them, that's getting bigger and bigger as time goes by. Someone at Future Shop tried to explain to me once why the bigger number is a good thing, but in the end, I went with the cheaper card, with a lower number. The number on the card I use all the time is '4'. So far, the photos I've recorded on it seem to be working out fine. I've read something about the bigger number being needed for video, which makes sense. But is there any benefit for a bigger number if you just make photographs?
