Default Z980 how much memory is needed

Just ordered a Z980 as I'm going to Africa in beginning of next month, but I find it a little hard to find any info on how much storeage image/HD video will need, I was will buy one or two 8 GB SanDisk Extreme III, two will give me an extra option if one break down, that's both cheaper and better than one 16 GB

Regards Bjarne

Bjarne-

Welcome to the Forum. We are delighted that you dropped by.

The first question is the important one. Will you be taking a laptop or a means to download your cards with you?

If you have a means of downloading, I would suggest three 8mb cards to be safe. When I was on safari, I found that I always seemed to take more photos than I had planned.

Thanx Sarah

I always bring the laptop no matter where I go, one of them who work with IT, so almost canít live without
Have you loaded 3 x 8GB with pics and movies in one day?
How many pics & movies will that be?

Bjarne-

No, I never loaded three 8gb cards in a single day. However, I do believe that you have to make a contingency plan to deal with possible card failures.
