Default Memory Sticks vs. camera memory - confused

I have a Sony DSC-75S with which I am extremely happy. But I have not yet had occasion to take more than a few pictures ata time and download them.
Now I am going away on a trip and have purchased multiple 128M memory sticks.
A friend tells me I am still limited to the number of pictures by the internal memory in the camera.
Huh???
If I am swapping out external memory media, why should camera memory be an issue ?
HELP !! I leave this weekend !!

You are only limited to how many you can fit on your 128 memory stick, and how many sticks you have. There is on internal memory limitation. Go and have fun and only worry about not having enough memory sticks

TBO is right. The built-in memory typically limits the number of pictures that can be taken in "burst" mode and perhaps the length of a "movie".

Default Thanks - I'm relieved

Thanks a lot for the info. Don't know where my buddy got his info, but it's nice to know I don't have to spend yet more money to use the memory I just paid for.
