    Can you say TeraByte? I know you can ...

    Also, you need to learn how to sort the shots ... lose the dupes you will never use. It is a hard choice, I know ... but, it is simply space management.

    I have a 320GB drive in the laptop, and it is <15GB away from full.

    I remember triple booting three operating systems with all of my stuff on a 500MB drive.

    32GB CF! Woah. I use 4's, and I've never filled one up. Guess I'm not shooting enough. I carry 3 4GB cards with me.

    Part of the reason I was happy to have an A300 and a 40D vs an A350 and a 50D is because those 15MP images take up close to 50% more space. That makes a big difference in a hurry.

    Drives are getting cheap, but it is hard to spend $150 on a drive when it is halfway to a decent lens.

    Consider it the cost of the film you no longer use to capture your images on.

    Hey guys our friends at Best Buy have a pretty good sale going this week at least in the U.S. on 320GB 400GB and 500GB external usb powered hard drives, and also on 1TB stand alone hard drive but it is from seagate and I have not heard the best things about them. the others are western digital I have a 320 and 80GB one and have no problems I use the 320 for 'storage'. Also keep in mind when Elisha was talking about how cold it was he is in the great white north those temps are in celsius, but don't get me wrong thats still way to cold for me to be standing in the park! Now I am going to have to go and start looking at that 400G lens weather is getting good got the 70-200 mounted and the Tokina 80-400 in the bag also!

    Cool When you do the math ... it has never been cheaper.

    A "roll" of 36-shot 35mm-film ASA 400 = $6
    Developing/Printing costs 36-shot roll = $13

    $19 for 36 images ... and remember, that is whether they are GOOD or BAD images (you do not know UNTIL they are processed) -> The cost is identical and you will pay for it.

    How many of those would it take to pay for a $150 Hard Drive? Yeah, about 7 rolls. Amazing, ain't it?

    Now, how many 12.2MP (9.8MB) shots can a 1 TB drive hold?

    ~ 102,000 images
    or the "shutter-life" of most digital cameras. I'd say that the cost is worth a lens, eh?

    Ok ... let's see just how much you would have paid for 102,000 images shot on 35mm-film, eh?

    102,000 / 36 x $19 = $54,000

    Good lord ... that's one heck of a hobby you got there. Thank goodness it is all virtual! Can you just imagine how much equipment you could ring up with a budget like that? Now you can go to the "SO" and say:

    YOU
    ::: "Look Honey, at how much I am saving (<- key word, here), by not using a standard film SLR ... Don went and figured it out ..."

    YOU, again ::: "Uh, Honey ... what's with the golf club? Honey?"

    HONEY ::: "I'll show you savings ..."

    YOU ::: "Aw, c'mon ..."

    Can you say 4+TB?

    2 x 640GB in Raid 0
    1 x 1TB
    2 x 1 TB in Raid 1

    Total of 3.28 TB of actual space.

    Only problem is my Raid 0 seems to be crapping out all of a sudden. I think it's the motherboard, everything is backed up though, but it's really annoying. Will probably have to RMA it.

    so last night was a bust.....lens did ok but nothing great considering the lighting.
    you'd think that the catwalk would have some bright lights so you can see the models in all their glory.....alas the lighting was no better than that of a restaurant!
    nothing super sharp but decent enough for a 4x6 print or 5x7.
    will post some shot later!
