So you wanna know how many photos can fit on an 8GB memory card? Well, if you landed on this page, then you are in luck. I wanted to know as well and I decided to create a quick little guide that will highlight the storage capacity of the card, depending on what megapixel you are shooting with. While it is not 100% accurate, it is a pretty good estimate and that should be able to give you a guide as to how much photos you should be able to take before the memory card fills up.

How Many Photos Can Fit on 8GB?

To get a good idea as to how many images will fit on the card, we decided to use some of the follow estimates: 1 MP = 1,000,000 pixels 1MB = 1,000,000 bytes, 1GB = 1,000MB JPEG 100% Quality = Visually lossless JPEG compression with 1:10 ratio of RAW image Photos – Compressed (JPEG 100% quality) Images per card.

MegapixelsFile size (MB)8GB

22MP6.61040

If you have a DSLR and shoot in RAW format, then the table below should be able to give you an idea of how many images you can fit on the 8GB memory card. Photos – Uncompressed RAW (24 bits per pixel) Images per card

While I estimated a lot of the file sizes and storage capacities, it is still pretty close to real life and you should definitely have a good idea as to how much photos 8GB can store.
