Capacity of Inherited Cruzer Edge 8 gig flash drive

I need to store about 9K photos. My camera says most are 12K pixels / photo.

Seems like 8 gig not enough to store?

In case the 8 gig Edge does have room, is the Edge line USB 2.0 compatible?

Many thanks,

Petra

Dear member of SanDisk Community, welcome.

Cruzer Edge 8GB, is USB 2.0. Link: http://www.sandisk.com/products/usb/drives/cruzer-edge/?capacity=8GB

Well, yes, the Cruzer Edge 8GB has plenty of capacity to store photos.

As depends on the quality of the image, each image weighs different, though have the same characteristics, because all photographic exhibition is based on 3 pillars: diaphragm, speed and sensitivity.

On average (photo 10 Mpx), (roughly…), we have:

RAW   =     ~ 22 MB c/u

TIFF    =     ~ 20 MB c/u

JPEG =        ~ 5 MB c/u

Then: con 8 GB= 8000 (8192) MB => RAW   =    364 fotos

                                                                   TIFF    =    400 fotos

                                                                   JPEG =  1600 fotos

For certainty, you can see in the camera manual.

Enjoy!

By the way, how big is one file for you? You can probably get the average of three photos. I think the numbers shouldn’t be that far.
