ISO ratings and memory card capacity
If you want to maximise the number of images that you can fit on a memory card, you should shoot at a lower ISO setting. As you increase ISO ratings your images will feature more image noise. Since image noise is seen as ‘detail’ it cannot be compressed – therefore each file will be larger, meaning fewer images on a memory card. If the situation dictates that you need to shoot at high ISO settings then you should always do so. However, if you don’t need the benefits of high ISO shooting, make sure that you set a lower ISO speed in order to maximise how many images you will be able to fit on to your memory card.
