View Full Version : How many photos do you plan on taking at the gathering?
04-06-2003, 12:11 AM
I just bought a 256 MB memory card for my digital camera. I can now take 408 photos at the max resolution (2 MegaPixel). I'm hoping to get about 3-5 photos of each costume.
I'd like to be able to distribute the photos on CD to those who were there at AX and Ani-Magic (these discs will be free). I can also e-mail photos for anyone to use on their site... all I ask is my name being the photographer.
Anyways, how many photos are you guys and gals planning to take?

As many as I can. Just a question of how many pictures will actually SAVE (Needs to work the bugs out).
I have a 128 and 16 mb card for my 4 megapixel cam. Also have some remaining shots in my 35mm cam.

RoseDuelist - No, problem... I'll try to get some great pics of you for your site and gallery.
Tetsugyu - You can but I'll take lots of good pics. I'll make sure that you get a CD of the pics.

I only use a 3.2 megapixel sony camera with 16 mb memory card. It is kinda sad, except my friend and I also have a sony laptop with means a memory stick slot, basically we have atleast 5 gigs of potential space for pics. It just that we have to do a lot of swapping. Hmm time to pick up some more memory sticks.

Thanks again Joe. I can't wait to post your pics on my site, with props of course..

I will take however many pics my Kodak MAX one-time use camera can take.
2 years of con-going, and I still use one-time use cameras... I am pathetic...

Don't say that! I do the same thing. But One day I know I will get a tricked out Digital camera and rock the cassba!

I wish I could get a digital camera. But I need the money for... well... cosplay.
Oh well... one-time use cameras do have that certain "quality" to them, I guess...

I get about 80 pics on a 1gig card ;) Mainly because I shoot in RAW format which allows you to manipulate the original file like a negative before moving it into photoshop.
I have to bring a 40 gig portable HD with me so I can empty my cards onto it. I think I emptied 4 gigs worth from the Balboa Park gathering.

Iori - I had the same problem, but I know I'll get one one day.
Kyle - I don't know what half that crap is but I'm impressed... (j/k)

Hmm. What to bring?
I have a digital camera that takes pictures on a floppy disk but only a few pictures can get on there. It's not the greatest but when I am taking quick pictures of my costume for sites then it comes in handy.
Or a really nice Compaq camera that works well. I can get more pictures with that.

Uhm. Heh. I've began giving up on taking photos at cons.. (I used to take a lot in my early days of con-going.. :P) But for this lil gathering, I may just bring a little normal, cheap, non-digital camera for a few shots if I remember.. because I'm not cool enough to have these spiffy digicams you people speak of.
Oh yeah, and I'm poor. :P

*walks over to Michi in the Poor section*
Jarod: Hello, my name is Jarod and I have a money problem.
Little Girl: But Mister...this is a girlscout meeting.
Jarod: Is it...or is it that you girls can't admit you have a problem?
I can't wait till I get some souped up Digital Cam. I'll get a site and host a whole bunch on the it. Now to figure out what I need.

If I go, I'll be bringing my 3 128mb memory cards, and 1 8mb one.. If I need more, I can I'll be setting my camera to the HIGHEST resolution and size so the pics will be at the best my camera can take. Before I leave, I'll transfer my pics to the admin's compy so he can put them on the site. :)
Not sure how many pics I'll take, but this will be a good practice for me before Anime Central (like Cosplay Boredom was to Sakuracon) so hopefully this turn-out will be good, and fun!! :D

I am debating whether to bring my Nikon FM2 which takes really good pictures but I only have 3 rolls of colour film, or just a normal digital camera...but either way I am taking lots and lots of pictures, depending on how many people are going to cosplay.

Alright, I got my 256 card for my camera now. So it looks like I can take several pics on that and vid clips on the 128 and 16 (or more pics!).
