    Yes I know last question means last one but everytime a new question comes up in my head which I know the wonderful people on this board can hopefully answer for me. I've decided on purchasing a Nikon d40, and this package I'm purchasing it with comes with a 2 GB memory stick. Is that enough for a starter in digital photography such as myself? I know different settings will change how much memory it takes up, but approx. how many pictures can be taken with a single GB of memory? Thank you very much (again). :)

    i use d80, 10.2mp , the biggest non-raw takes about 4.~ MB... so 1GB (what I use, as I'd rather have more memory cards than one large memory card) can give me about 200 pictures
