Dear fellow CSnappers,
I am in a dilemma so I need all the advice I can get before spending my money (sorry, I am still a poor student so every dollar counts).
I am going to Japan with 3 of my friends in December for a 10-day trip. Basically we will be going to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. I am terribly excited because this is the first time I am going to Japan on a F&E trip. Previous 2 trips were all by tour groups and as we all know, tour groups don't really bring you to the 'heart' of the city. Basically I have visited all the main tourist attractions and now, I want to see another POV of these cities.
To cut the long story short, I seriously suspect I lack of CF cards and I am considering whether I should buy more for the trip. I have 2 CF cards, both of them 1GB each. I am using a Nikon D70s and I don't plan to shoot them in RAW. If I am shooting them in JPEG, I don't know if I should shoot them in Fine, Normal or Basic for the image quality.
Previously for all my overseas trips, I just shoot my photos using JPEG Normal and my 2GB worth of CF cards was able to contain all my shots. But those trips were maximum 6 or 7 days tour group trips.
As such, should I just use the JPEG Basic settings and settle with what I have, or buy some more? If I should buy more CF cards, should I buy the 2GB or the 4GB?
And is there another IT show at the end of the year? Or do I have to wait next year?
Tank kew berry mud in advance for giving advice!
