Just curious, but (in your best guess) how many shots did you take in 2006? I bought my Rebel XT in November 2005, and I noticed yesterday my latest files are around 8700. So I'm guessing I took around 7500 - 7800 pictures in 2006. I don't want to even begin to guess how many of those were good pix, because that might be depressing. :o) So let's hear it!

11,000, god bless digital.

Hmm, I didn't shoot much last year so going by what my file count is up to around 4-5,000.

ETA: Last year as in 2005. I forgot it's already 2007! Geez.

@ 26shots per roll @ $7.00/roll would have been $3309 in processing w/ film. Thats some savings.

Which explains why the economics of the film/picture industry got so tossed up... this would be known as a disruptive technology for the old line film companies (makers, processors, etc...).

I took something like 13000 pictures.

best guess from checking images i have here (late oct 05 - early nov 06) puts the count somewhere around 10,000 shutter clicks.

i'm guessing that's around 10 good photos...

I'm interested to know how many bear music has shot. I'm guessing 120. :P

In my 2006 Folder, w/112 sub-folders: Started at file number 5,751, rolled over the numbers once and ended with 6,154.
Grand total of 10,402 for 2006, keeping 7,634 of them.
approximately :)

Less (about 90%) than I averaged in recent years. Ask me how many times I raised the viewfinder to my eye and didn't press the shutter button.

105.9 GB...or around 12,209...more than a third of those or 4,918 during the 2 weeks I was in Kenya...

...and out of those I'd say I have maybe 40 that I really really like...a 0.3% keeper rate...eek!

With a 16MP camera, I don't blame you. I know hard drives are getting cheaper by the day, but firing away like Rambo could get tedious with your camera. I could stand doing that myself--more editing BEFORE I go "click".

Around 6500!!! again follow everyone, can not say how many are good!!!
01/22/2007 05:24:52 PM · #22
Around 13500 pics Yikes!
01/22/2007 05:24:55 PM · #23
Just from my picture's numbering - I'd say about 1000... but that's from August (when I bought it) to December... not a lot of keepers, though!

An interesting question. Much less than in 2005, that's for sure. the actual count is about 2,050 for 2006. I do have to say that my "keeper percentage" is so much higher it's not even funny, so that number is somewhat misleading. Still, I do need to get myself out the door and shoot more.

19,000 not counting those that I deleted. But I don't delete much.
