    I'm going on vacation for 10 days or so. I have 3 8GB cards (24GB). Think that's enough? I shoot raw.

    How much does everyone carry?

    it's enough if you are going to dump photos every day or two.


    edit: depending on how much you shoot of course...

    I don't take my gear on vacation so I'm no help. A vacation is just that....a vacation. I'll take my wife's point and shoot.

    I take my laptop so I can keep up with client requests but I usually leave my cameras at home. I've never been one to take snapshots with my good gear. That's what Nikons are for. :mamoru:

    my 16gb sd card can hold up to 1.2k pictures on RAW mode. anywhere i go that should be plenty of space. if its a long vacation i bring my netbook and dump my pics on there then transfer to work laptop after.

    I ended up ordering one more 8 GB card for a total of 32 GB. Should be enough. The purpose of the vacation is not photography.

    Should be enough. I'm going through about 16gb per 3-4 days here in Europe this summer, but that is an absurd amount of photos, and lots of bracketed exposures.

    truth. For a professional photographer, you're getting away from taking pictures for a living. For an amature, we go on vacation to take pictures!

    I have 42 gigs in CF cards, and (for now) a 500 gig external for backup.
