Be careful when buying SD cards off eBay or Amazon market place etc, lots of fakes about that for example say 4GB but only hold 1GB.

You can get them for under £10 usually , i got mine from Sainsburys on offer for about £6.99 , but that was a while back , so could possibly be cheaper now , have a look on ebay for a guideline .


Also Tesco are usually a good price for sd cards .

Actually I might have a spare 1GB one you could have for a donation to my justgiving page, I think I came across one the other day when clearing out a handbag I have only used once or twice - goodness knows what it was doing in there! I also found a £10 note so it was a good haul lol. I'll check for you in a bit if you are interested

You have your camera on crappy settings then. As my few year old 7mp … You have your camera on crappy settings then. As my few year old 7mp camera only gets 1200 photos and no videos on a 4GB card.So you have a really old camera or have it set on really low settings.



well i suppose , its only a 6mp kodak tbh , but for general pic taking it does the trick

The one I found is actually 512MB, so half a GB, sorry about that. If you are interested still, just let me know.

EDIT: FYI, using a 9MP camera the card currently has 99 pictures on it which have only used 191mbs of the 512mbs.

I would say between 250 and 350 depending on a few things. How would a £1.50 donation sound for it? I think justgiving have a min donation of £2.50 so if you sent the funds to me I could add it to the next donation I make within the next 7 days when other people have received items I sold for the charity. I think I might have to put this on FS/FT if you are interested, not sure where we stand with rules etc, I guess it depends if you donate directly or I donate on your behalf. Let me know if you are interested and I'll sort it out if you are.

Ive got a 2gb and a 1gb you could have. Just make a donation to SS justgiving page.

I like you

the megapixel of your camera and the setting you use ie fine, standard will affect the number of pictures the memory card can store.
Personally I would go for a 4gb card, which is 8 times bigger than the 512 card mentioned above.
and they are less than £5 here

He's lovely, thanks dh058977 and thanks tigger462, that would be super
I have currently raised £93 for this particular charity on this justgiving page and I'm looking forward to reaching my current target of £100, I'm getting there slowly but surely. When I'm there my new target will be 201, my old uni number, and co-incidenally my father's old school number.
And on that rather waffly note, I'm off to bed and thanks again dh.
