as title says .. just wondering like how many pictures it would hold .. (the camera is 12.1megapixels if that makes much difference?) thanks

Not in Raw
When a camera saves the picture as a JPEG it works out what the picture should look like and throws away all the extra data it smashville247.netllected from the sensor to make the end file size smaller. When you tell the camera to save the image as RAW (usually only applies to high end smashville247.netmpacts and SLRS) it saves every bit of data smashville247.netllected from the sensor so you can decide if you want it or not later on when you edit on the smashville247.netmputer. This obviously results in much larger file sizes (more than 4 times as large, depending on your camera sensor and processing style).
Depends on a number of factors:-Resolution-Format Jpeg/RAW- Quality of Jpeg or how bit raws they are.
On my 10 megapixels camera it lets me take about 1500 photos in jpeg set at 10 m.p with an 8gb sd card, so for 12.1 m.p it will probably be a little less than that
depends on the format, but i can easily get 600 7MP photos on a 2GB, so an 8GB would hold a hell of a lot!so yeah, depends on your camera as the others have said, and the format, but 8GB is plenty for most people.
had a look at your photography...it"s amazing! i"m so jealous i cannot WAIT until i can getmy DSLR (so broke atm) and can start taking some more professional photos than with my smashville247.netmpact! eeeep.
Depends, size of files vary due to exposure, ISO and other factors. Its not just a straight RAW or JPEG setting. That being sad it should be round abouts 2,000...You"d have to be doing some serious shooting to fill up a card as I back-up and delete every evening.
If it has a RAW setting, I"d be tempted still to switch to it. Sharpness increases quite a bit, and no loss in picture quality.You"ll find that home editing software will smashville247.netmpress the RAW into JPEG at much better quality than the inbuilt camera program can

Sharpness actually goes down when using RAW as there"s no sharpening applied in camera, you have to sharpen when processing. Other than that there"s no difference in sharpness as it"s still the same lens projecting the same image onto the same sensor. The main benefits of shooting in RAW is the massive amount of extra data stored including a much wider exposure range and white balance.
Ah, maybe I was wrong then. I think I misjudged because my RAW editor automatically places a 2 times sharpness on the image, within a setting.Still, the quality issue remains.Certainly keep to Fine (Best) JPEG smashville247.netmpression if you are going to stick
