Rather than take my notebook just for downloading photographs. Can anyone tell me on Carnival how much it costs to have your SD card downloaded on to a disk by the photography department. what I am thinking is that after I get back from each days shore excursion I can download the photographs and put the disc safely away. I can then edit them when I catch up with my notebook.
Thanks
Peter

We paid $20 on Princess last March, and I would assume Carnival would be in the same ball park.
What you DON'T want to do is have to buy the SD card on the ship--that was $50.

Thanks f-mattox,
Was that for one cd and approximately how many photographs were on it.
NO I certainly won't be buying on the ship I'm taking 2 - 520mb cards with me.
thanks again
Peter

Yes Peter, that was for one CD with about 60 images.
It was either that or buy a SD card.

Thanks for that. Starts to get pricey doesn't it?
I am a bit what we call iffy about bringing the notebook but I can see it's either that or fork out about USD100+ (NZD150)for the discs. I don't want to seem penny pinching but I wonder what the maximum is that you can get on a disc?
cheers
Peter

Here is a two gig SD card for $11.99 after rebate. I use this brand all the time and don't have any trouble. I have a Canon S2IS 5mp, I shoot on superfine, I can put about 700 jpegs on it, It you use the lowest setting you would get a couple thousand jpegs on it.

A CD is 640 mb so you can get a little more that one of your 520 cards on it.
Here is another company I use, a 1 gig card for 9.99 free shipping

You can get 2 of these cards for the price of having one CD made, and have approx 3 times the storage.

Thanks Gary for that very useful information.
I have got a Canon S3 IS a fantastic camera in my opinion.
The only trouble buying from the USA is the very expensive freight cost. E.g. I bought a very lightweight piece of sporting equipment for USD29 (NZD43.50) but with the added freight cost of USD53 it came out very expensive. I will have a good look around NZ and see if I can get 2GB at a reasonable cost.
Once again
Thanks
Peter

Peter,

I would suggest purchasing a so-called "image tank". There are several manufacturers of those. Here's one, this is another one. I've been using an image tank for almost two years now, and I wouldn't want to miss it. Mine has a 40 GB harddisk and is approx. the size of a Nintendo Gameboy (the original one).
